Test-drove today; rides like a dream, so i mustve got pretty damn close on the alignment! I have an appt tomorrow for inspection & alignment, and im getting my chewed up front tires swapped out at the same time. So i should know in another day or two how it all worked out.

Picked it up this morning. Handles really nice with good tires up front. I was really close on the alignment, and now its perfect. Passed insp with flying colors too, so we're good to go!

Couple months later, still handling like a champ! Wish i flipped the steering sooner. Tires are wearing so much better now too.

So ive hard the hard top off since memorial day, and the XL rear cardboard panels are getting a bit rough:


I cant find XLT rear panels anywhere, so i went to the local scrap yard, and found a huge sheet of 1/4" thick black plastic for $20! So i made my own:


Laying out the second panel. The sheet was just barely big enough to make both


cheapy sound deadener from Amazon:


First panel installed:

I used the rear speaker grills out of my '88 since the cardboard panels didnt use any. I still need to find another pair because sooner or later these are going to end up back in the '88 again!


...and both done!


Im pretty happy with how they came out, altho if i ever find some XLT panels im still gonna get em.
