I replaced the rear coil springs, trim the side of the fender(excess thats
not seen unless looked up at), and put on P215 75R14 tires. (thanks for the
help on the springs) It looks much better than the old 185's. I didnt
really notice any power loss. It still hums fine at 80-90.
Ive decided to just replace the rack, its not too bad at like $150 or so.
(rack and pinion steering)
Now to my new questions. The rear has play in it. I think the bushings
need to be replaced.(the rubber ones?)
I also want to replace the window runners. I am getting air coming through
a bit. Where would I pick/order these items at? I checked for the window
runners on the web and couldnt find anything.
I hope to get it painted after I do the body work on it. It will be a nice
shiny POS then. :)
Anybody have any other suggestions?
I plan on replacing the front coils and struts sometime.
I also have been putting synthetic in it. It has 70,000 miles but I figured
the synthetic should help?
