Thread: DeathTrap's Blue ZHP Sedan

  1. #121
    Only the lower, not the upper. I did replace it last night, and it may have had some torsional stress? At least it looks like is was slightly twisted compared to the good arm. The car is at almost at the same ride height as the other side now. I did find some more cancer while I was under there seems to be only on this side where the poor repair was done. I'll grab some pictures later.

    Holy crap, that's a lot of rust. How is the other side?

    Other side is great. The rusted out side is where the quarter panel was replaced. I'm guessing poor draining led to this over time. Unfortunately, I'm wayyyyyy to invested to let her go now, so I'll have to eat this one... Eventually

    I also had a bent upper control arm screwing up the height and toe. I was glad it wasn't the trailing arm.

    Ordered the updated ignition coils with new plugs. FCPEuro LRG saved me about $200. I'm hoping this will cure my misfire as it seems to be getting worse, which is a good thing for diagnostics.

    I'll go to the yard tomorrow pull a subframe, trailing arm and bracket, and a maybe a new engine wiring harness as the loom is deteriorating on mine.

    Which coils did you go with? I bought Delphi, since I read some good stuff about them. They are great so far. Added a noticeable pep to the car. I didn't have misfires before except for the 2800 rpm stumble, which it did not cure.
