Thanks! A little at a time.

Front struts and endlinks are on. Did it last night. I'll get some pics this evening when I install the rears.

Front endlinks had NO urethane/rubber left. Bolt was just dangling in there so the sway bar was actually doing nothing. This morning's drive should be a lot better.

It's been running better and better now that I'm getting some decent drives in. Maybe it just needed opened up?

The front seemed more planted today. It didn't want to wander around and it didn't feel like it was swimming. The front end didn't dive down going over the same speed bump this morning. So it has definately made an improvement.

The old endlinks were bent and rusted. The bushings were just crumbling in my hand.

Now that I've caught my breath, picked up a starter, IAC valve, oil/filter and Coolant temp switch today. Made my own "Honey-Do" list for this weekend!

Sounds like you are going to have fun working on " Sean's" car

I hope these parts fix the minor issues you are having and get this beast running all out.

B4C `Special Service' police package became available to law enforcement agencies only. Cars were RS coupes with Z28 5.0 TPI or 5.7 TPI drivetrains and Z28 suspensions. These cars came equipped with the 16 inch wheels and P245/50-ZR16 tires, engine oil cooler, rear disc brakes, and limited slip axle. Midyear, the 1LE 11.86 inch front brakes and HD calipers became optional for the B4C. This package was the only way to get air conditioning and the HD front brakes. There were 592 1991 B4C Camaros built.

Well, the steering is real sloppy and everything under there, minus the endlinks, is 20+ years old. That and the seals are shot around the doors and window. The hatch seal is new, but this kit is cheaper than piecing it together.

I'm doing the panhard bar first which will help in corners. Then either a new torque arm or just new bushings for it. Torque arm runs from the the rear of the transmission back to the rear diff.
