What really helped my A/C, even after the Griffiths update, was to replace the blower motor and air box with one from a boneyard Chevy Tahoe - really puts out tons of air. I...

I wonder how the factory does it? I had to do that once, and I gave up, it was way too much stress on the wires and I didn't want to risk damaging them. And I had the engine out!

I removed mine and covered it with Alcantara - looks both modern and retro at the same time!

I also recovered the door top sills and my key bezel.

I am very happy with the set of Beru wires I just got for my '89 - all the connectors really snapped on the plugs and cap with real authority. Way better than anything else I've had on there.

Are 'stock' shock absorbers available?

For the rear, I think they are Bilstein B4's, but I only see B6's in the catalog. Looking to return to softer suspension now that I don't track anymore.

TIA,

Where are you located? I have a spare you could try. The pot's do go bad, mine did.

Great idea on the wood block!

If you do choose to replace your shocks, I'll pass along that you don't really need the little clip on the pin at the bottom of the shock. It's a real PITA to...
