    Repro upper wing

    I went to buy the NPD upper wing today, only to find out they ran out and won't be making more any time soon. Does anyone have one in like-new/unused condition?

    Wheel spacers on stock wheels

    I'm having clearance problems with front coilovers and stock wheels/tires, and it's requiring me to run 1/4" spacers up front to keep the lower spring perch from rubbing the tires. I don't know how...

    I don't know if anyone is servicing the ball joints on stock control arms anymore, and I wouldn't trust a random shop to do it. I would probably avoid stock arms because the ball joints are going to...

    Motorsport B springs with stock Konis is a known combo that performs well, and is a nice, moderate drop. I couldn't find the spring rate for the H&R Race, but I'd be concerned about them being too...

    When I still had a VAM, I used a drop-in K&N.

    After removing the VAM, I used components from the March Performance ram air kit and some custom silicone elbows.

    It didn't meet reserve with a $22,750 bid. It looks like this car was sold at Barrett-Jackson recently for $33,000.

    MM strut tower braces

    I read on another site that a few SVOs are running the '86-'93 MM strut tower brace (MMSTB-1), and it works, but there is some hood interference.

    Has anyone tried the '79-'85 strut tower brace...
