Unless you are happy changing the control arms every so often get poly urethane bushes fitted. Might stiffen the ride slightly depending on your set up but will last much longer.
Short ram intake, chrome grill, chrome belt line, drilled/slotted discs, few flames, engine dress up, chrome bits and pieces.
