    This ass is beautiful!
    Moser diff cover adds A LOT! Beside it seems stronger then the original one and come with drain and fill plugs it's just beautiful. Together with the Bilstein yellow red bushings and the sway bar special painting I love the out come.
    Suspension are on. Parking cable is on. Oils filters and gaskets got changed.
    Still the steering shaft and front brake lines+calipers are left and a little fix for the exhaust tails and I believe the car will be drive-able. Then it will be only interior and cosmetics (like replacing valves covers etc.)

    What a great weekend it was!
    My Zcorn got a set of wheels!
    Brakes system (and upgraded) and shocks and springs (Bilstein and Moog 5610) new bushings etc. were done.
    Stance is a little higher then expected. Not that bad and I think it will be a little lower soon as the springs will get their shape. Now they are getting used to feel earth :-D

    Need to weld some small rust hole at my floor then POR 15 electricity the interior and we done + some engine tunings and touch ups. I guess I'll add the complete list of parts and upgrades I did when I finish. With your last recommendation I also replaced my brakes for steal lines, slotted rotors and HAWK pads.

    1. Recently I decided to go for the body bushings too. I saw a lot of threads about it. My bushings are crap and the frame wiggling really scares me.
    I don't sure it's the frame itself that moves - I just noticed that when I got the car on the ground it all was leveled and when I took it again up on the lift and noticed the front fender is going up. The fender tip at the door area is moving higher then the door for about half inch.
    I won't do the bushings by myself I'll give someone professional to do it. Any recommendation bushings? Not an autocross or drag car. Just a fun-for-weekends-car.
    I hope it will solve it and it won't be anything worse. I don't want the car to break to 2 pieces :p

    2. Anyone knows about similar to OEM seat tracks? I decided to go for a brand new one but the OEM ones cost 250$ for each side!!! It's freaking a-l-o-t! Any good replacement for it?

    And some pics:

    The body bushings aren't bad and some good info on site to help out. I suggest some solid aluminum ones. Rims are nice,like the tread pattern.

    Thank you!

    Does not look like you have subframe connectors - Energy suspension has them and are polyurethane which in this case will work out well.

    didn't understand
    Energy suspension make subframe connectors? really? Didn't know that.
    Think I'll start with good set of bushings before the subframes connectors cause importing such a big heavy parts will be v-e-r-y expensive and that's before work.

    Lets try again you do not have subframe connectors - so Energy suspension has bushings and are polyurethane which in this case will work out well

    Oh thanks!
    Sorry for my English :)

    Poly won't squeak? Why not aluminum as 80sz wrote? What the differences in riding quality and level of work required to replace each kind?
    Looking for something that will hold for long years and justified the Bilstein shocks with the new springs, other bushings and sway bars

    Btw any idea about seats tracks?
