That's really generous. Would it add too much to the workload to chase down part numbers for the Group N bushings while you're at it? Appreciate the effort.

It's still way to early to say with certainty, but it seems to me the best swap will be your Gen 1 ignition switch into a Gen 2 and use your old key.

It's the universal curse of getting old. Everything hurts and the few things that don't hurt don't work. The only thing worse is not getting old. I'll deal with the aches and pains thank you.

The cars have about a degree and a half in the rear in stock form. If you lower that goes up. Beyond that, in my book it depends on what you want from the car. My car runs at stock ride height. I...

What can I say. It was the tool I had. To a kid with a hammer everything looks like a nail. In my early 60s I wasn't exactly a kid, but … 400-450 mile days, even on a serial basis, were OK. That 800...
