My best to you and your wife. I hope you recover on all fronts...

Well heck Larry. Sorry to hear all this but glad you let us know about it. Will be looking for some good news in the near future. Apple cider vinegar is good for inflammation. I get it in pill form and take one every day for arthritis in my hands. Eliminated 90% of my pain.

Right you are e-man, inflammation is linked to a lot of things in the body and people that treat their inflammation tend to see relief for a lot of ailments.

Default Front Suspension re-Redux

I fabricated/welded some 1/4" steel plates into the bottom of the spring buckets on the lower control arms. I also replaced all the balljoints and tie rod ends with Moog units. After some trial and error, I got the Viking coilovers installed, adjusted, and set for ride height.

I took the car for a drive around town, and for a short trip on the highway and on a rough dirt road. It drives straight, and everything seems ok. I have an appointment in a couple weeks for an alignment, unless they get a cancellation.

It still looks like I'll need to sell the car to help fund home repairs/replacement. A Navy buddy wants to do a Go fund me to save the car, but I'm not inclined to have others bail me out of jams.

I've posted a few pics for your viewing pleasure.😁
