    Mine were stiff on my 86. I got upset and used a long extension, sitting on a jack stand and a big breaker bar and snipe. Your cars come along nicely keep it up!

    Parts came in yesterday. I assembled the rca and panhard bar last night. I am hopping to finish up all the little stuff tonight and get the wheels on and do some adjusments. Anyone know a good thread on panhard bar adjustments.

    Just get a tape measure and adjust the panhard until the axle sit centered at ride height.

    Oh and good job indeed!

    took the car out this week end. Went to machine shop to adjust the exhaust, it was hanging low. Now i all i have left is to adjust the lateral bar, I cant get underneath to measure, think i will have to wait till i go for alignment.

    jack the diff and put on axle stands... doesn't have to be "on the ground" just need to have load on the coil so the axle sits at ride height

    ALSO

    I remember seeing this car on kijiji and thinking how the flares looked goofy, but you've really made it work. I hate to repeat myself but great work dude!
