  1. Hazdaz, are you running the halos with your parking lights are on a separate switch? I found some good LEDs and put them in our parking lamps, and will do halos with a whole new wiring harness soon. I think I want them on the parking light switch, but not sure.
  2. Well, I’ve got a leak from my water pump seal out of no where... It’s RTV’d, not gasketed so it’s obviously been off before. My 64 has a new aluminum radiator and electric fan conversion as well. I think I’d rather just replace the pump since it’s the same amount of work. Since I’m in Las Vegas, and I plan on getting the factory AC back in operation, should I look at a Flowkooler, March Performance, or TA (it looks like they don’t make a high flow for 1st gens though) or just a 5 blade OE style? Also, I‘ll pull the timing cover and check everything in there. Oh, the joy of old cars!
  3. CARS, llc sells them. It has foil backed fiber insulation behind it as well. http://www.oldbuickparts.com/product_info.php?products_id=7303
  4. Some progress on the trunk, just waiting for my sub enclosure to arrive to finish it all up.
  5. Yeah, I just looked too. Built by Fox, and adjustable, but $$$. https://www.ridetech.com/products/shocks/application-q-series-shocks/1961-64-lesabre-front-smooth-body-shock-hq-series/ I will do the ride tech kit for sure if I do bags.
  6. I’m no stranger to dropping $ on quality suspension 😆. But I’m not planning on autocrossing the Rivi, and living in Vegas, I don’t need a corner carver either. The Jamco springs are definitely stiffer than the 55 year old stock springs that came out, and would benefit from more dampening for sure. I’ll check out the Delcos as well.
  7. Jamco sells a rear Bilstein that is spec’d for “lowered applications” which is actually less expensive than the stock application one. But Bilstein says their stock replacement is good for up to a 2” drop. Only 1 front option offered. I’m curious about the cheaper ($45 each) shocks that Jamco sells, not much info on their website. There is still a chance I may bag this car down the pike, but until then I want something better than these Autozone specials...
  8. Along with the quick ratio steering box and front end rebuild kit, we did 2” Jamco springs. They ride nice, and looks great. Previous owner put new shocks on, but they are cheap OESpectrum brand and are far from impressive. Bilsteins are up to over $600 a set now, which seems over kill for our use of this car as a cruiser/daily driver. Jamco makes shocks for about $45 each, anyone have experience with those? And I’ve see both good and bad mentioned about the cheap Monroe Sensatracs.
  9. Ok, so for 100% clarity, i could cut where I’m pointing, or just over-tighten a bit. Currently I have 2 puck style bushings with a center section on each, but the new one shown is the superseded one, correct?
  10. Are these tapered style ones the ones that can be cut down to pull the arms forward for more caster? How much should be cut? I’m assuming from the small end of the cone shaped one, which would be mounted on the “rear” side so that the LCA would be pulled to the front of the car. Am I thinking about this correctly?
  11. Thanks Tom, The reaction rod bushings I ordered from CARS back in October are supposed to finally ship this week, and I just ordered a control arm bolt from them as well. My uppers were in worse shape than the lowers, and the outer tie rods were shot too. I’m assuming all original since we had to grind the welds off the uppers to remove. I’m wanting to replace the rest just based on the condition of the other parts. PM me prices for the center and idler please. Do you have inners? Those aren’t too expensive for new if not.
  12. It’s for a 64. Price? Feel free to PM me if you don’t want to show publicly.
