I did talk about it a bit awhile ago.
Another thought hit me last night too. Pdad, Bullet, John, and I spent alot of time talking about endlinks while we were discussing the handling comparisons between the cars. I'm convinced Pdad'* links on his 2000 are shot (at over 100k miles), explaining the difference in the two 2000'*. When I did my links, I noticed alot less weight transfer, much firmer launches. This may benefit Pdad'* 60' times.
The endlinks changed in 1997, and any new kit you buy is the new design. I feel they're inferior, as they use a plastic spacer in place of the old steel design. The plastic has some give to it, and wears out quicker, inducing slop, and accellerating the wear (or decreasing the lifetime) of the bushings.
My gut (backed up by carefully watching the endlink work by over a dozen members in the last 6 months) is that any car 1995 or older, or with 100,000 miles, should seriously consider replacing their endlinks front and rear ($50 will do all 4 corners) as many of us have done. driverjohn will be doing his very soon. We diagnosed that as his problem before even verifying it up on the hoist on Tech-day of WCBF. Great experience for all of us, especially since we had 2 gearheads with us
Consider worn links or bad bushings on a 2000. Front and rear.....this can affect weight transfer and 60' times, but how much would be difficult to determine. Handling in curves and bumps is dramatically improved, though.
