RE: lowering springs

So bert how do I know how much my car is going to be drop with a 700, 800 or 900 spring rate. Is it the spring rate that lowers it or can you get lowering springs with different rates, and who makes them. Baz said 820lb is stiff for street, what do you think? Would it be foolish to start with 750 an...

RE: lowering springs

Ok I read the entire thread on suspension setups and I am totally confused about what to do. I just bought my 510 a couple of weeks ago for 1.5k and it is a serious project car. All of the bushings are about half gone, it makes that horrible bobble noise on bumps, and handles like a drunk driver is ...

RE: Very scared - Frame flexes when steering wheel is turned

I guess what I want to know is, is it something that needs to be fixed? As of right now I want to use the dime for a daily driver with about 150 hp and torque. Maybe in the future I might do more with it, but for right now that is all. So with these driving conditions and these power ratings, is it ...

RE: Alternator charging an 17 Volts

i did have it check in a shop and there wasn't anything they could do. I didn't see any ground wires near the voltage regulator, are there supposed to be. Also I notice that the haynes says the charge light will go on when the car is not charging properly. so does that mean that this 17 volts is reg...

Very scared - Frame flexes when steering wheel is turned

Does anyone have experience with this. When I was watching the steering gear box when my dad turns the steering wheel back and forth the frame flexes a small amount. you have to pay close attention and it is a small amount, but as far as I know there isn't supposed to be any flexing.

How much power can you get out of an L16?

I just got my 72 2 door 510 and I was wondering what to do for the engine. I thought it would be fun to keep an L16 in it and build it up, maybe turbo later down the road, but I was wondering if you can get enough power out of the L16 to make it worthwhile to fix up. Is there a lot of difference in ...
