    I have a feeling that silver one was in bad shape before they re-did it. You have to be really careful when buying from the small shops.

    yeah i guess i'd be better off spending a few thousand more and get a better car than spend less and have to do work on it

    With that many mines you should get SFC's on there right away and put some new shocks on if they weren't done yet.

    Quarterpanel flex, leaky t-tops, twisted frames, it's all too common in our cars. Invest in a good set of Sub Frame connectors. Have them professionally installed, bolted, or welded on a loaded lift, not a frame off. On a frame off, once the car is lowered onto the tires and the suspension is preloaded, the welds will break and the bolts as well. For those who have questions on the loaded lifts, it's just a lift you drive up on and the whole car is lifted. Most shops have a roll on lift or a pit.

    Do welded and not bolt on ones. I have the hotchkiss ones and am planning on having some angle iron welded on in a few places to stiffen up a little more. I wish there was something more we can do to reinforce the chassis more. Still feels like I have quite a bit of flex when turning into driveways on hills.

    I used UMI

    Any brand will work in most cases. I went with the cheaper prices for the suspension build, just not for the motor/tranny/rear end

    One of. A lid should be priority number 1. Depends on how deep your pockets are gonna be on mods. Besides changing out ALL the fluids and filters of course, but if you're gonna be putting some serious power to this thing, then yea, SFC's are gonna be a top 5 mod.

    I would recommend it with the mileage and the age.
