Sounds like a good buy, what did it set you back and was it bought to put the EA to rest?

this thing is in fair condition for the price payed, remember you can borrow my buffer as it needs a good hit over the exterior, i also have a ef dipstick for the trans if you need it, (your wreck probably has one 2?)
Dont bother with monroe gt shocks, alot of bad feed back on them and my fairmonts ride quality wasnt the best with them,

can get lowered king spring front nd rear for about $280 delivered and for $620 i can get shocks aswell although i'm pretty sure the shocks in my old fairmont were still half decent.
or for about $700 delivered i can get front and rear shocks and struts kyb adjustables with lowered king springs
