Would I be close if I expected OE replacement strut quality ?

I mean, I've had KYBs with Eibach ProKit springs on my old car. Would you say they're close in comparison ? :-k

Sorry to hear about your bumper. And thanks for the info. I'm really considering Racelands now. I think they're pretty much what I'm looking for. :thumbup:

It is rusty from the car being a DD for several years. Techs have looked at it several times over the years while underneath the car and told me that it isn't too bad but I wanted to have a new K-frame waiting if and when the time comes . Here is a pic to show kind of the shape it's in (pic is a fe...

There you are Gramps. :D Passenger side rocker pics. They look dirty enough now so the flaws are hidden. And don't worry about the door, I picked up a rust-free and dent-free one a few weeks ago. It'll go on in the spring. http://i1278.photobucket.com/albums/y516/joyforall99/IMG_1358_zps8e38523f.jpg...

Kind of sucks the recirculate feature is eliminated on the non A/C set up. I use that on really cold mornings to get the cabin air warm faster. You do need to open to fresh air once it is warm, to prevent fogging tho. It kinda does yes. But I doubt it would be as efficient without the A/C. Anyway, ...

What vacuum source are you connecting the HVAC vacuum line to? None. The 2gn Neons without A/C don't use a line there at all. The only knob which is controlled by vacuum (recirculation/outside air) is gone on the non-A/C control panel. The OEM solution for this is a rubber cap plugging the tube on ...

Thanks guys ! And yeah, a rear swaybar is on the to-do list. I was gonna go with a 22mm Addco. Not sure if it would be too much for a DD at stock ride height. It may bring the car to the oversteer side of things but maaaaaayyyybe not too much with the 24mm front. Thoughts ? Also it may see an autocr...
