    This may be the route I have to go. If the manual track isn't worth it (sound like it's not), my next step is cutting the foam down in the seat - it is a leather seat car and the seats are plushy. ...

    Any boxes come with manual seats?

    Hi all,

    Looking for manual sliders for my 84 Wagon split bench...did the box panthers ever come without power seats? If so, anyone have a set they want to sell? Need some extra...

    Anyone ever try these these rubber donuts from Mr Gasket. I forgot about them...used once years ago on an old car and gave me an inch boost. Don't know of these are a good idea or not......

    They are original but it is fairly low mileage on the chassis (130k or so). I know spring rate doesn't change with age but possibly they are sagging some too.

    Hi y'all, I went hog wild with the motor/turbo combo in my wagon and now it sits super low in the front. I already swapped on an aluminum bumper but I need like another 1 to 2 inches of ride...

    Do the ports on the 79-81 front bumpers actually flow air back to the condenser/radiator? Or are they just for looks? On my 84 wagon the bumper support is solid so even if the chrome bumper cover...

    correct it is the stock 8.8 with 9" housing ends. Yep, friction modifier was used. No chattering and super smooth driving. Maybe too smooth!

    I'd consider saving up for a better unit vs trying...

    THanks! That's good info. I'm living with "decent" braking now, it stops the wagon well and holds the rear brakes well enough for my 2 step at the drag strip. Would like better holding power...

    Yeah, those brakes are definitely dragging, jacked up the rear end and it's tough to spin the rear tires in neutral and I can hear the pads scraping the rotors.
