    Where to start for suspension upgrades

    Here’s the strut bar not easy to photo because it’s so long. I used rubber washers to secure it to the tower so the powder coating isn’t damaged at the bolt holes

    The GM solution was to remove the dress cover so the fuel would evaporate more quickly. I like changing the o-rings and fixing the fucking leak a lot more.

    These are great illustrations Manic. Thanks for posting them. Looks like they assigned individuals by name to fabricate different support pieces. In the back of the 1991 CS Service Manual Vol 2, there is a section which shows all of the reinforcements added to the coupes to make them convertibles. I counted 30 diagrams and each diagram appears to show a different support brace and it’s location on the car. I’d post all of them in a separate link, but my manual looks like termites got in it and the entire section of the manual is damaged. If someone could post up the diagrams in the Vert section that would be great. Here are just some of the diagrams. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Take a caliper or something to measure the diameter with. Just in case they're in their system as "fits z34".

    Turns out there's a place only 20 minutes from me with z34 sway bars and they are open on Saturdays. I'm going to stop by there tomorrow and see what shape they are in.

    The newer hardened 4th clutch hub swaps, the 7/8 chain and sprocket set can be swapped but was told by justin when he did my tgp trans that the chain in the tgp's was a touch wider than the normal single chain setup and i guess he managed to hunt me down a nos chain after calling around places that lead to the west coast i think. Some of the clutches swap over as well 3rd for sure, peace of mind having a well known trans builder for the 4t65 15 minutes away Sent from my SM-N900T using Tapatalk

    Took parts off of it over the years-it's missing brake pads, rotors, ignition control module, coils, battery, taillight, k&n air filter, door handle, catalytic converter, and probably some other stuff I can't remember right now. Engine was good (150k or so miles on it) when it was parked and it was driveable, but it was hard to start and has been sitting for 5 years. Don't want to sell it until the white one is gone in case I need some parts off of it.

    Dude save your money, ive got 3-4 Cutlass front tower braces Ive collected over the years. PM me if you want one, they all could use a good painting though. The one in the link reads as if its for the 2nd gen GP that was started up in `97. Maybe a few made it out in 1996?

    If you ordered a rear strut bar from GOT2B GM, well done, I think you got his last one. You are going to love what this does. I have one of these in mine and I got his 2nd from last one for my brother who got my old 1994 CS from my Dad. Huge improvement and others look into the trunk they won't even know it's there. This piece, coupled with a front STB from the CS convertibles and a set of KYB's in all 4 corners really make one heck of a difference. All the better. I bought the new Coopers for the car as well. Right now the car is laid up until Spring, looking forward to Another year with this car.

    I did coils on my 91 GTP and found the 250s were to soft I’d also recommend 300. You can use the rear sway bar out of a 97 montecarlo if you can find one. It’s the largest stock bar there is. 95-96 might also have these as well. I have a powder coated strut tower bar from a 96’ cutty vert. In my 91 it rubbed ever so annoyingly on the EGR so I took it off. I’ve posted it on eBay here and there but did not sell. If you’re interested I’d sell it on for a low price but couldn’t say what shipping would be or if it would rub your EGR as well. It’s more likely to as they’re both 1st gen GPS?

    5 speed swap

    Got the other carrier off last night. All seems well from what i see so far. Will bag and tag each lifter and see if there’s any bad ones. I’ve done some general research into hydraulic lifters and the consensus is to put em back where you found em and clean them with solvent to remove any dirt. The sticky plunger I found on one could just need a cleaning. If not it seems summit of all places might have them in stock. Next up is off with the heads..

    None what so ever. The b-pillar was reinforced but between the pillars was just the same metal that was there when it began life as a coupe.

    Very tastefully done Imp! I like it, whenever it looks like a factory add on, I'm all for it. I'm looking at your car everyday now on my Calendar!

    Well, I'm back from the tropics, and I am sorry to announce that I was not able to install my sound system. I got very busy with the kitchen cabinet build, i didn't have any time to work on the sound. I will try again in this coming December.

    Which engine? I haven't changed oil in my 3.1 in over 92,000km. Or in excess of 57k miles. Esso XD-3 0W-30 full synthetic. Filter changes every 15k miles or so per the manual and use of the double-sized filter. 3k miles, good lord, what a waste if you have a 3.1.

    As long as it's not re-badging a car to make it look like something it's not I'm game. My Regal got a new set of the correct Regal badges after it was painted. I didn't put the CUSTOM badges back on, instead I did the SUPERCHARGED script found on the back of a Riviera in their places. The rear of the car looked bland so I did the same combo on the trunklid. I had a set of GS badges but couldn't bear to put them on even though that car would have stomped a first gen GS. On my GS I did the new style black & chrome symbols on the wheels and would like to either remove the hood badge or replace it with the new style.

    Hello all!

    Have you tried Rockauto for cv shafts? There's usually some good deals there.
