Nah, I'm too lazy for that. lol
Thanks though!
I have little stuff posted here and there.

I don't have any part numbers, it was a second hand system.
I keep meaning to look and see if I can find one.

That's why I haven't bought one of the hood strut kits--to avoid future expense. They look better and are out of the way when working under the hood, but prop rods are simple, effective and much cheaper in the long run.
Sorry about the confusion, everyone - I should have said struts. I do agree with you that it's turning something simple into something complex, but it sure is nice.

I love it. Smooth when I'm cruising, nasty when I'm WOT.

I wanted to go up to 17's from the stock 16's, but couldn't find any Ford wheels I liked. I know a few have run Volvo wheels so I figured I'd give it a shot. Found these on flebay for a decent price with great tread.
Only real issue is Volvo's use a lug bolt, instead of a lug nut, so the holes were too small for my stock lug nuts. Had to pick up some of the spline drive type tuner ones. They had Volvo in black vinyl decals on one spoke of each wheel, but it came off easy with a razor blade.

I really prefer black wheels, but I'll leave them alone for a while before I dip them.

That would look awesome!
Though whenever I try to do a tape line with dip it looks like crap.

TboneZX3 I upgraded SYNC to v441. It's nice to have bluetooth metadata displayed!
