Mike, My bolts on the 93 came right out, but I'm betting the salt in PA is an issue. We don't use it here.

Are you also upgrading to the FE2/F41 sways?

Both drop springs are in the rear with one stock shock and one GR2. lol.
It dropped about 1.75" with a stripped trunk & doughnut.

I'm thinking about it. I want to see how the new springs, shocks, struts, and poly end links do first though. I still have to get the endlinks though.
I've got a $1G car insurance payment comming up so I'm not sure If I'll get to the endlinks till next month. :(
That shock nut I ordered is cosing me a fortune. And I had to get camber bolts for the back because even with the shock/knucked adjusted all the way, the camber is still a little negative. I know smellbird didn't have to use them but I need them. So $7 for the bolt $5 more because it'* a special order, $22 for the camber adjusting bolts, and like $25+ for shipping because I'm having it fed-ex'd.
