Given the condition of my vehicle after it had sat around unprotected for so long, I made the decision to replace and upgrade all of the suspension, steering and brakes. Since they had to be replaced, I decided to go for the best performing parts I could afford. Actually, they're arguably more expensive than I could afford, but that's a different story ....
These updates basically are turning the car into a "Pro-Touring" car. The best description of pro-touring can be found on the pro-touring.com website:
A classic muscle car with enhanced suspension components, brake system, drive train and aesthetics, including many of the amenities of a new performance car; developed to function as well or to surpass the capabilities of the foremost modern performance vehicle. Pro-Touring cars are built with an emphasis on function and are intended to be driven. Whether they are driven on the street, the race track, the drag strip, or through cones at an auto-cross is of indifference; regardless of the location, pro-touring cars are destined to be driven.
