  9. I had installed European springs years ago. Currently the wheels are spoked Weds with 225-50-16 tires. I eliminated the rear end squat with a solid mount for the differential, replaced the mustache bar with a later model to correctly allign the half shafts and installed spacers under the bar mounts. I'm looking forward to changing to the Tokicos and Eibachs. I still have the original wheels but lost the hubcaps along the way.
  10. Thanks Michael. I'm in the North Hills. You can email me at rjdhome@msn.com. Thanks for that "Old guys" site info Jim. I'll have to register there. I'll work on getting some photos. The car will be going into the shop in about a week though. I ran into a problem with rear control arm spindles on a friend's ealy '71 years ago. I'll probably leave mine on the car and just pull the strut down and out to change the springs and shocks.
  11. Thank you for that information. I'll probably go that way. I seem to remember something different about the early '70 struts. The Koni shocks would never thread in very far leading me to believe the early struts were shorter than later 70 struts. I hope I won't have the same problem with the Tokicos. I also recall that installing a heavier front sway bar 7/8", along with a rear bar, caused the front end to lift a bit. It's currently sitting at 8 3/4" floor to bottom of rocker panel behind the front wheel which is too high.
  12. While the custom body shop starts to strip the paint and do the body work, I need to either upgrade or refresh the suspension, among other things. VIN is HLS30-13907 mfg. 11/70 I'm the original owner. Car has 58k miles but was in an accident years ago and fixed. Pennsylvania weather wasn't very kind to my rear quarterpanels. Now the custom shop needs to get it right. All struts are original with Koni shocks, but the shocks are old. I see there are plenty of threads for me to look at. I guess it'll take me some time to review them. Offset Delrin bushings are installed. I see the Z Store mentioned as a supplier site. I need to upgrade the brakes, front and rear. I would appreciate any advice to get me started. This is my 1st post. Thanks for bearing with me.
  13. Thanks...I emailed them for some options/quotes. I have a feeling this could get expensive!
  14. Can anyone point me to a link where I can get a 3.0-3.1L bored/stroked L28 from a reputable source...East coast would be best.
