93 tbird have some repairs and mods i want to make

I now own a 93 tbird and have some issues the trip meter isn't functioning along with the temp gauge. I would also like to know of an easy pass though the firewall so that i can run some wires. Other then that I would like my my car to handle as best as possible besides tires what suspension pieces can be run to moderately increase performance? Any words of advice are appreciated thanks

What motor and drivetrain do you have? Performance on suspension, what do you mean?

The standard v6 and automatic transmission. is there a company that makes suspension parts for tbirds? I am not to worried about increasing the horsepower of the car i just like a car that handles well.

AH ok, the first thing i would do is replace the upper and lower ball joints. You would be suprised at how well it handles. Duralast is the way to go, they really dont make "performance" bushings, just more expiencive ones.. There is a pretty good sized round rubber piece on the fire wall on the passanger side for your wires. Its right above the carpet. Take it out, or cut the center piece out. Thats what i use to run my amp wire.
