Spoke with Seth, heading up tomorrow night, and sat morning. Meeting back up sat late afternoon. You'll be able to meet up with him before me. I'm going to try to be up there by 7 or so.

Round 2

LF Lower control arm, upper control arm shaft, lower coil mount, sway bar link, a LF brake hose, and another alignment.

Also changed out the acdelco plugs for autolites, and played with the carb a little.

On my test drive last night the LF started squeeking over every bump. When I pulled the upper control arm shaft, it was so dry the ends were polished to the point of looking like chrome.

Replaced the rear shocks with air shocks yesterday. Put 200 miles on it the last 48hrs between metro cruise and driving to work. Honestly surprised how well it drives. Cruises pretty nice on the highway at 65. Def asking for overdrive though lol.

Fuel gauge only seems to work between 1/4 and just over 1/2. Needle doesn't seem to move outside that range any.

Powersteering and power brakes would def be nice. My right leg is sore from the metro cruise constant stop and go.

Was pretty happy with the alignment, first older car I have owned that I was able to get it dialed in dead on the specs without issue and everything was really easy to adjust.

Was also happy with the cooling, I was concerned with the metro cruise, as I don't have a fan shroud on the radiator. But even with the stop and go traffic and the hot outside temp, it managed a consistent 195-200. About 185 when cruising.
