PostSubject: Almost done   Mon Jun 08, 2009 9:08 pm

I installed front 9c1 springs with one coil cut, shocks, lower ball joints, and sway bar end links up front, and emergency brake cables out back. I would have done shocks in the rear too, but I guess I will have to pay to have them installed, as I could not get the old ones out. scratch
It was nice to get away from things right now and just work on the car. But I have to say, she is a bitch. She fights me at every turn. I actually yelled at the car today, and threatend to part it out and crush the rest. After that, she was as good as gold. Even chirped second. She will not udder a sound on takeoff, but will chirp second. scratch affraid confused

Dibs on the brake cables.
PM sent. Smile

Top or bottom bolts on the rear shocks?

Could you post some photos later? I'm curious as to how much 1 cut coil drops.

lol! LMFAO thinking of you yelling at your car in the garage! I had a similar situation today driving Ol' Statey to get the windshield replaced. I had just finished putting in a new fuel pump and radiator, and removed ALL the A/C crap, and I'm driving to the glass place this AM thinking holy crap. after 2 years of sitting in the driveway, once the windshield's in I'll be drivin' this bitch again! Woohoo!! No sooner did I finish saying that than I blew a brake line... It never ends.... but it's worth it! I have a much better story about the wagon but I need much more time to type... another time...
