Check here and PM Geezer...he has the specs somewhere.

You will also probably need camber bolts. I would buy them now and have them just in-case the allignment shop needs them so you don't have to wait on parts. I think they're $20-25.
I will do that. For the short term, I'm going to keep my current tires on to assess the wear vs alignment for the new set up.

I noticed that you mention Autolite 103's in your signature. Since you have the same motor as I do, what is your feedback on have the colder plugs?

Is there a noticeable power difference? How about fuel economy?

Try as I might, over the last year, whether I have a feather light foot or a heavy foot, my minimum has been 19.5 mpg to 29.0 mpg. The lower end was almost only in the city and the 29 was mostly highway. I've yet to crack the 30 mpg barrier and I was wondering if changing the plugs may help with that.

Your thoughts...
