No clue, hopefully it's a somewhat simple fix and won't take long

That's cool. I would put the summers on but I believe I need to get new ones first. Should find out tomorrow.

That's good. I have always had the short throw so I wouldn't know the difference. But I do hear the rear bushings would help.

I would like to do bracing for the frame but I'm not sure. Even bigger sways might be nice.

No. The under chassis bracing. I think they call it subframe bracing.

I'm looking into a subframe brace eventually also, my u-brace is rusted to hell hahaha, that and it adds nothing but weight (and safety but who needs that?).

On another note im back driving my car, the guy who did all the work came by today and took a look at my car, cured some worries and such. Still have a little work to do but the car is totally drivable. The noise was clutch shudder and he said it should go away with a little driving. Something with the clutch and flywheel mating again. Anyways it has gotten a little better with driving and he said to contact him if it ends up not going away. Either way i feel alot better after having him take another look and riding shotgun whilst i take him around the block.

Glad to hear its running again. I think we need to get a meet going soon. This time we can't ditch out like the past couple.
