Ok so its running good so I figured I'd swap some stuff I wanted to keep. Swapped in the bucket seats , front bumper and valance, drivers door & the cd6. Tires are bad and steers like crap so that was this weekends project. First I discovered the inner tie rods were both shot, swapped em out. Then I found a bad upper ball joint, swapped it out. Next the front brake pads were almost gone, swapped them out. Figured I better check the rear brakes...no friction material left on one side(chewed the drum up), swapped out the shoes and drums... On the bright side I got a good deal on some used 265/75/16's for it. I'll post some pics when I get them on and the alignment done.
Ahh well, sounds like normal new used car maintenance. Not the engine/tranny stuff but brakes, tires, steering, and suspension are always.

When I replaced the thermostat I forgot to get a new o ring and its seeping enough that you smell anti freeze, I'm planning on doing that and who knows what else...could be a bumper lift...
Are you thinking about coming down? I've been thinking about a Feezle run sometime also...

Oh and I like how you took the rearend off that frame and have it up on buckets. I guess it might take a trip to the scrap yard if noone wants it this summer?
