At first I bought Cardone new cv axles in my 2000 Metro in 2008. They are still ok but not as smooth as OEM. I bought several rebuilt Cardone, but did not use one of them since it had a reground oversize joint and a missing, ground off seal dust flange.. Quality has slipped in recent years as their ...

My 91 stock Sprint Turbo idle sags a bit when the rad fan kicks in or whenever I switch on any load. Since it has an idle speed adjustment screw, I used that to set the warm base idle at 900 rpm and just live with the sag to 750 rpm when every electrical load is switched on.

Sorry to hear about another musician leaving earth behind. May her personal connection live on within you whenever you listen to her music. As a childhood gearhead, i always liked listening to Which Way you going Billy.. as the ukelele backbeat reminded me of my Plymouth's Torqueflite transmission h...
