    This looks promising, I bet if you talk to someone at DMC Houston they might be able to sell you just the fabric. From the description on the store website it sounds like they have matching texture...

    Several years ago there were recover kits available for the center console though... I think these were OEM and the material is...

    If you're planning on removing ball joints, bearings, or suspension bushing then I'd highly recommend buying a hydraulic shop press. I bought one 10 years ago and I've used it literally hundreds of...

    I stand corrected, I had no idea the early frames were constructed like that. Is there a particular VIN cutoff when they changed to the later style frames, or was it a running change?

    The car with 14 miles has been stripped of quite a few parts and no longer has the original engine. This couldn't be a more perfect situation for DPI and one of their high end engine upgrades....

    In the grand scheme of things $130 isn't that expensive considering how critical those bolts are to the rear suspension. About 10 years ago I paid $150 for a set of inconel Toby Tabs and shortly...

    From what I've read over the years on various forums, it's generally not recommended to use poly bushing on the rear suspension links.

    The upper control arm bushings are a press-fit design so if the bushings could be removed from the arms by hand, that is cause for concern. I see a lot of pitting in the photo which would indicate...
