Very nice being a 84 i guess it has the SRA rear end because of the perfect camber if it has the IRS how did you overcome the camber issue.

BTW is that your wife stripping the sound deading material if it is you got to love a women that will dive in and help

its IRS, not sure i just threw in the perch/spring combo in the s12 forums that they suggested, but my friend did adjust this little oem camber thing in the back. but other than that its just a s13 FA500 shock with day motors perch/spring.

yea thats my wife, she's a car person like me...were currently in the hunt for a 510 wagon/4 dr or even a 72 corona wagon since we have a baby on the way :D shes had her shares of cars x2 ek civics and a s13.

Some people have had good luck with a Krylon stained glass spraypaint, or clear yellow vinyl.
