    In regards to the oil mess, I hate to say it looks like mine from when my PS pump leaked from the high pressure line. O-ring failure. I dumped a shit load of fluid onto the alternator and it pooled up on the K-member. As I drove the PS fluid blew back along the engine. In a couple of your pics I see some of the same mess in post 12 and 39, 39 being the most telling for me.

    you cant buy empty clamshells......if you dont have them ........you have to buy new mounts to put the polys in

    my rack was leaking at the tie rod shaft........made a big ol mess on the under side........what the manual does not tell you is that you cant get out the rack bolt under the alternator.....with out lifting the engine up 6 inches.......i had to sawzall it off......put the new bolts in upside down........LIKE they should have been done at the factory.....that was 1 of the biggest PITA yet
