hi

after struggling with the old endlinks most of the afternoon, it is done.

the ride is firmer still, but the handling/cornering is fantastic. i took a look at the rears, but wont attempt it due now due to their rusted condition. The new bolts arrive from the general later this week...so if the weather is good next sat, i'll do it.

Looks like I had my suspensions mixed up, but to clarify, even the F41 suspension has the same sway bars as the FE1 and FE2.

hi

if i understand my local gm parts guy, the FE1'* usually had the 28-31 mm front and 21mm rears.

the FE2 and F41 has the 32mm solid front and may or may not have the 23mm rear. also, some of the lesser sways are of hollow tube construction.

hi

the computer screen showed 23mm and 21 for the later 90'* H'*. i believe there was a 18mm as well.

my front is huge, and solid, not tubular. i'll have to mic my rear one, as i am curious.

Don, are there any measurements that can be made of the springs themselves to make this out? Everything in trunk from the 94 I got my parts from is gone. It spun a few times it seems... Is there another place the codes are?
