    Deer whistles don't work so just skip it altogether. They'll run into you if they feel like it, lol.. Dumb animals.

    I think the 1310 series is still made in USA, but I would double check so you don't get some Chinesium joints.

    I only run Spicer U-joints. Never had an issue. I'm sure Summit or the like sell them. Can't remember the part # for the box-body, sorry!

    Thank you for the info on the sanding. I'd love to cut all the rust out and weld in new steel to keep the rust from coming back but time/money is working against that. Don't have a way to blast it...
  8. How to properly prep rusted area for paint?

    Ok, I'm not a body guy at all. I'm working on getting the windshield edge on my Bonneville cleaned up for a new windshield and have some rust to deal with.

    Yea, I'd stick with stock ignition on these. No need for "my spark disappeared" coils. If you want color then paint the COPS whatever color you want. For reference I've only replaced one coil so...

    Honestly I wouldn't bother changing the manifolds out for anything less than mid-length headers, with longtubes being the best. The gains just aren't worth the effort. And a lot of the Mustang...

    If the weather isn't crap tomorrow I'll wander down to my other garage and see if the 89 CV I'm parting out has a good one. I just hope I can reach where I have the trunk lid sitting, lol.

    Maybe check out SKF. Not sure if they're still made here though. Hopefully the axle shafts aren't torn up like they are prone to do on the 03's. Been down that road 3 times on my 03 LX Sport.

    Welcome to the site! That GMQ looks really clean. Luckily most repairs on these cars are usually inexpensive if you can sling a wrench and won't cost near what a European car would to repair.

    The change to 31 spline was mid-year in '05, so anything from there on up should be 31 spline unless someone changed the entire rear axle on your '09 MGM.

    I think loosing 4-5 quarts of fresh fluid if the trans shows to be good is worth the cost vs. the time/money to R&R a whole trans.
