Default Ah, new ELC stuts and poly bushings rule.

I had to have spent the greater part of today installing new ELC struts (801798s). And though my rear sway bushings didn't look too bad, I did them up anyway. So I took it on a quick test drive, and low and behold...no more squat when I give it the gun And this is running w/o air (Gonna reinstall the compressor tomorrow).

Yet another problem scratched off the list

So they were the right struts... Good... i'll have to order some of those then...

Glad to hear you got it done... I know your air struts were shot... I can just imagine how it rides now

Yeah don't worry... I have to do the strut mounts soon..

Its too bad that that site does not have the struts for the front or I'd tell you to get them.. The ones they do have are for the 87-90 Bonnies... won't work for us..
