Yeah, I'm wanting to do that but I'm having trouble thinking of a way that won't end up looking crappy.

And that I do! I'm not sure what the stock Dynaride is like, but with the Gran Touring suspension the car handles far better that what I would have expected for it'* size.

Yep, the car came like that, it'* a little plastic cover that clips down on either side. Speaking of which, I'm hoping to do a PCM upgrade someday.

I just noticed I posted engine pictures from before I cleaned it. Time to fix that:



Yeah, the engine bay is looking kind of ghetto with the aluminum foil insulation and no beauty cover. I leave the cover off because it promotes heat retention.

That degreasing stuff WORKED. Made my engine bay smell like a tar pit for a while, but it really cleaned it up.

Ultra, Have a look at your spare tire cover and see if you have the FE2 or F41 Code... F41 will handle like its on Rails... Really good for a Large car...

Very Nice LeSabre

FW2

Also this means you have the beefire 32mm sway bar in the front and the 21mm on the rear

If you have never replaced the End links, the energy suspension end links may help you
