Hey, you picked a good year!
That car looks to be in mint condition and it has lower miles on it too!
Nice find!

Some things should happen in stages. It looks like a beauty though.

As for the saggy butt thing.. we can check the ELC operation pretty easily.

I found out why its sagging

I found a tow hitch in the trunk, and that explains allot. so im thinking new springs as well?

Tow hitch isn't making it saggy.

ELC makes it saggy.

Sorry, I should have explained better. The tow hitch in the trunk isnt actually making my car sag its rearend, but towing would, and when I popped the trunk, I found the tow hitch that goes into the receiver thats bolted to the car.

On one note im glad I have one, and on the other, Im worried about what it towed. It doesnt have a Tranny cooler and although the tranny fluid looks good, it could have been changed.

All in all the car still ROCKS and im having fun with it. Especially getting up to 85-90 from a cruising speed of 70

This is the result of MANY speed bursts that you describe. And a whole lot of other related beating.
