    The ABS sensor and sensor ring are on the axle and the back of the steering knuckle.
    I didn't have to do anything to them. If the wheel stops the anti lock will kick in.

    No changes were needed to the ABS system. It is attached to the axle and the steering knuckle.

    Teamed up with the Trifecta tune, and the brakes, makes this car go from snooze to Cruze!
    My last fun car was a 2005 Saturn Ion Redline. Now I don't miss it so much.

    Good advice all. The coil overs and the sway bar are on the long list. The stock tires are not Michelin's best.

    I'm definitely not knocking the mod. Awesome that you went through all you did to make this work. I love someone taking the torch and running with it. This car has a long way to go. So many things can be done to it.

    Never thought that you were knocking it. I wanted the brembo's for the looks as well as the performance. I like the 18" wheels, no need to upgrade those. There are a lot of things to like about this car. The handling, even stock is so much better than the Ion Redline. The Redline had good brakes though.

    I have a 6MT Eco. So, I don't have a z link. But I do have a white line away bar. It handles pretty good. Sometimes it gets a little squirrelly if I stab the brakes, at high speed. But it slows down ok. Bigger brakes are a must with the tune.
