When I did the swap in my last Bonne I bolted the front GXP coilovers to match the wear marks on the strut (where it had been on the last car). The alignment was perfect lol.

Pulled it out of the shed and gave it a quick detail yesterday. Also replaced the oil pressure sender and brake light switch.

Looks great as usual Nate, but we were just talking in another thread about paint. How come your car has succumbed to the GM primer issue?

Hasn't or has?

It'* original 21 year old GM paint, except for the bumpers witch I painted not because of peel, but because of scratches and general scraps that come with a 20 year old bumper.

I don't know why this paint has peeled, but this car has always been garaged and taken care of pretty well.

Heck even my old 1991 Grand prix GT with original paint never peeled.

Sorry, that should have read "hasn't" peeled yet?

Maybe its the garage effect. No sun beating on it all day long. Paint cools, contracts, paint warms up, expands, dis-bonds itself from the primer. Yep. Peel.

I tried to get it as close as I could (Brace kinda hides the marks), and it'* not bad. The crown in the road is a lot of it I think. I also had to replace an outer tie rod end and need to get the alignment double checked anyways. Might as well drill out the ball joints and get them replaced before that too lol.

A Dodge torque flight 727 puked its Guts all over my garage! I hope I can remember how it all goes back together.

Just pretend Dodge isn't in your blood and you can't remember how to put it back together, or lose some important piece. LOL.

Got a K&N filter to start my CAI. Leaving part of the air box there until I can get a PCM tray.
