Went to PYP with a few buddies and grabbed a few things for my buds lude.

Ended up getting a hood, passenger side quarter window *went through 7 trying to get it * covers for the flip up lights, driver quarter panel, passender tail-light, a pair of near new drums, and new looking pistons for the read shoes. Also got 2 of those seals that go between the carbs and the intake manifold. Found a near new cat back exaust which we're getting on wednesday.

oh, cant forget... Got a ricer exaust off of a automatic corolla with a home made body kit on it... its new home is now on the back of a 88 cavalier

well, i think it was a corolla^^^

installed a Fram Air Hog air filter. I figure it will pay itself off after i dont have to replace cheap paper ones.

replaced fuel filter. I love cheap fixes like that, made quite the difference in throttle response.

replaced broken wheel stud

next up, new tie rods, and upper ball joints

got some camber adjustable bolts for my front struts, threw em in.. went to kal tire for a 4wheel alignment....
turns out my rear wheels were toed in 3/4 of an inch... no wonder the tires started cupping and it always cornered like a plow machine
so got the front camber at -0.6 degrees and rear at -1.8 with toe zeroed out....

it feels like a new car now, corners are grippy and almost to the point of a bit of oversteer finally! A lot less of a slug that's for sure

ahh man seriously get some caber/caster plates for up top. camber eccentric bolt are ooogly way of correcting camber. and it sucks if you go to take apart your suspension, casue you loose your alignment

new, larger throttle body... 9" cone filter... quite a noticeable gain in the low end... stock airbox was way too restrictive.
