I defiantly plan on doing that soon. I'm currently having to replace the whole front end. Got ready to do a CV Axle and found out everything was shot. Strut Mounts, CV Axle and joint, lower control arm and ball joint, Sway Bar End Links, Tie Rod Ends, everything was shredded.

As soon as I finish, I will be on the market for an aftermarket head. Did you decide to do a rebuild? If so, what head did you go with?
