I'm going to look at a 98 with 170k on it tomorrow. He is asking 4486 for it! There's one a couple of hours south of me with 138k that he wants 5000 for but it has 4" lift wheels 33" tires bumpers stereo and roof rack.

There's really just not many for sell in my area and the ones that are for sell are in the 5000 dollar range.

track bar needed replacement, keeping the energy bushing on reserve since the moog one is new on the new bar.

Drives like a real vehicle now! No noises over bumps!

oh, and I ran some injection cleaner through the 703s, that I grabbed out of the Junkyard. I used the shop bottle that hooks up to the rail and the engine runs on the cleaner. I figured some cleaner would be good, since the NEON is not the most cared for car on the road...and god knows how many miles are on them.
