  3. WOW! When the time comes, post how you liked these or not, looks like one mean tire.
  4. I never seem to get that far with any of my tires. They age out on me and need to be replaced (for safety reasons)way before they ever wear out. That even goes for my snows I have on my truck, they are going on their 8th year (which I've decided will be the last) and they are nowhere near the wear marks. I went with those new Cooper CS-5 Ultra Touring tires, 215-60R-16, V rated. So far so good with these. I had 225's (Uniroyal Tiger Paw) initially but my brother badly needed a set for his 1994 CS and the 225's were a better fit for the 3.4 package which his car has. So he got those and I went with the Coopers mounted on my refurbished 5 spokes.
  5. 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.
  6. I'm hoping no one gets ticked for me putting in a plug for a vendor and this memo will confirm I have NO financial interest in doing this, but I had to show the group a photo of one of a set of 4 of these wheels. I bought these refurbished wheels from Collision Wheel in Bath, PA. HOLY S**T they are nice! Correct silver sparkle with the milled edge. They look even better than the photo below shows, now I'm afraid they are so good they are going to make my car look like c rap. I'll take that chance though. I am 100% satisfied, as far as being correctly finished, these folks NAILED IT. I sat one next to one of the wheels currently on my car and now I don't even want to look at my existing rims anymore, bring on the swap!

    Cutlass 5 Spoke Refinished Wheels

    Also, as these wheels are TOO nice to be sitting out all winter, I've already pulled them and currently have my saw blade wheels with snow tires on the car. It's ready to go in bad weather if needed but I'd prefer to just leave it under the car cover until Spring. In other words, EMERGENCY USE only

    I've installed NOS Center caps to go with these as well as NOS plastic lug nut covers. I bought all those many years ago and I now finally have a chance to actually use some of this stuff

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    My brother just picked up my old Teal 1994 Cutlass Supreme from my Dad who has had it since 2012. Already my brother has had an issue with the motor and I can tell he's not to happy about it. Specifically, when dead cold, upon starting it the motor races to over 4000 rpms like its going to explode and then within 3 or 4 seconds it falls way down and sputters and nearly stalls out/runs very rough and then races way back up to high RPMS, and keeps repeating this until it's fully warmed up and then it smooths out. But, he's advising it's starting to now do this all the time regardless of the temperature of the motor, and just overall runs rough. Does anyone out there have an idea what may be causing this? I will say my Dad hardly ever drove this car and it was always outside for the last 6 years. I'm speculating the car's fuel system has now been jostled by now being used everyday and the motor has a Fuel Pump/Fuel Filter/Injector issue(s). And the Service Engine Soon Light is occasionally going on as well Has anyone had this issue with the Quad 6 motors? Thanks.

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    Ok, back from the road trip. Problem solved. Turns out the IAC I sent him directly on E-Bay was a total piece of S*&T. Luckily I ordered a 2nd one from my local parts store and doubly luckily I actually went and picked it up last week. I pulled the one I bought my brother and it literally fell to pieces in my hand. What a rip off. I installed the 2nd one I brought with me and the car is now running as it should, no racing, no sputtering, all good. Mission accomplished. Thanks everyone for this tip, it took some additional effort but it's now right.

    Thanks, will do, I think it's time for a road trip to NJ to help him figure this out
  12. Looking for a good driver quality LH Cutlass LH Spoiler Tail Light Lens. Good to really good driver quality (no breaks/cracks/huge scratches, etc). Last year I did such a great job packing away the set of these that I have, that I can't find them now. And here it is almost JULY and my spoiler still sits in the box waiting to be installed as the tails are still somewhere......... I've secured a RH but I would be interested in buying a LH-RH set if you're not wanting to break a set up. Everyone out there has my word that if and when I do finally come across the set I so securely stashed somewhere, I will re-sell the extras here on this site first. Thanks, Gene

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    Ok, on to the next issue. My brother installed the new IAC valve and it fixed the low idle sputtering, all is well there. But he's advising it's idling in park or neutral WAY TO HIGH but once he puts it in gear it's fine, it settles right down to where it should. I myself have never adjusted the idle on these cars, I wouldn't know where to start. Is there some part on the motor where the park/neutral idle can be adjusted so it doesn't race? Thanks All, much appreciated. We get this last bug out off it and I think we're good to go.

    Cutlass 5 Spoke Refinished Wheels

    They seem to be holding up well so far, I'm about to take them off for the winter storage so they don't sit outside exposed to snowdrifts all winter. The car cover only goes so far..... Can't wait till next year! I've dumped A TON of money into this white 1996 CS since I got it and in retrospect it's all been worth it, I'm really enjoying driving it every day to work. To think at one time these cars ruled the road but these days they just aren't around. Next year- Cross Drilled slotted rotor and ceramic shoes to add some stopping power. I'll probably go with E-Line or Power Stop. And I've GOT to get that leak into the trunk fixed, it's driving me NUTS!
  16. Any chance you have another set of these? My brother just bought my on 1994 CS from my dad and I've been touting how good your bracket set up is & he'd like to buy if you still have any left, thx.
  17. Interesting question for all..........for 1994, the 3.4 package convertibles had the 2 bucket seats and the console in the back, the others got the bench seat. Is it possible to remove that entire bucket seat package and replace it with a rear bench seat set up from a non-convertible 1994 SL? Also, would those back bucket seat back and/or seat bottom cushions be able to be used to replace worn out front seats? thx.

    1994 Cutlass Interior Swap Scenarios

    Thanks all, I went to check out the 3.4 convertible over the weekend. No sale, needs too much work. A picture says 1000 words, but it also doesn't say 10,000. BAD leak into the trunk, the jute was saturated and STUNK, meaning it's been doing this for quite some time. I couldn't get it to stay running and I'm suspicious it needs a timing belt., Or worse. Got enough projects. I passed. I've had one of these before and when I sat in it I could hear all the road noise form the street. Just not into that anymore. It's what they do. I'll just stick with my (quiet) 1996 2 dr.

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    Thanks, that's a plan to look at that if the IAC is not working right or at all. I was the original owner of the car and I had it until 2012 and the IAC was never replaced. And in the 6 years my Dad owned it he never replaced anything.

    1994 Cutlass Interior Swap Scenarios

    Thanks, it may be in the works that I part out my old 1994 if I get it from my brother, he doesn't seem to be happy with it . I'm looking at a 100,000 mile 1994 Convertible 3.4 with those rear buckets tomorrow. If I buy it, I'm taking a hard look at thoses rear seats as the rear seat set up in the coupe is MINT and would all match up nicely.. So I may just part out the Coupe. It's got 78,000 on it but it has suffered from 6 years of total neglect while my father owned it. But if this convertible isn't a sale, all bets are off. I see one rusted out Trailer Arm or smell something "gamely" in the cabin and its game off. The only thing the dealer knows about these cars is selling them.

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    That's what the sales reps were calling that motor back in 1994 when I bought this car new, it stuck with me all these years. I bought one of these IAC valves for my 3.1 as a back up. Lesson learned here for sure.

    Just ordered one, NOS AC Delco, thanks, man. I don't think that was ever replaced. Long overdue.

    1994 DOHC 6 Racing and then sputtering

    Figured it out IAC. Idle Air Control Valve. I'm good with motors up to 1988, anything after that, not so much. Much Appreciated! I think this is the malady.
