Default 95 Riviera SC

Hey guys, I've talked a little about picking up a local Riv. Looking like about $1000 so the price keeps dropping. Reason behind that is it needs the strut tower ...ummm thingies. Plates or adjusters...what'* the right name?

Also it'* not idling very well, and he says it isn't getting much boost. After popping the hood my first thought was since the plug wires weren't routed properly they looke like they are rubbing and probably arcing. Basically would need the standard tune up.

Any other suggestions on where to look, I'm thinking I'm on the right track...but would appreciate suggestions.

I think you should pimp the Riv Mr. Bill!
