Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

I fought with the front end today, my bolts are FUSED on there big time.
Tomorrow the car is going to a Privatley owned an operated Alignment shop to get fixed hopefully.
Owner has been buying parts from us a bit lately to restore his Beaumont.

It'* always satisfying to change parts and notice a big difference.

Last weekend I finally got around to bringing my old T/A (Black Betty) in to a shop to burn off the top shock mounting nut that was seized on, so I could replace the front shocks. When I removed that one shock the rod literally fell out of the body. There had been no resistance at all. The new Koni adjustables made such a difference it is unbelievable.

I expect you will notice a huge improvement in handling as well.
