good advice; I'll pay heed. The people that sold it to me said something about a rear end swap that was done....????...now solid info on that. Since I have plenty of time between now and break-up ( when the river ice breaks up in the interior of Alaska) and I can actually get it out, I'll pull the diff and R&R the suspension. Any thoughts there? I mean, it's a bit overwhelming. Everybody wants me to buy their stuff. Left to my own devices: New upper and lower control arms, boxed, rubber, not poly....new stock springs and isolators and set of good quality shocks. And while I'm in there, new break lines and parking brake cables. This car came from Ohio, and the shop that did the paint loaded up the underside with undercoating. man..what a mess.............And of course, the gears. I wish somebody here did dry ice blasting. You can find it in America, not here. Thanks!
