      Frosty, Thanks for the link, I have been sick for almost two months now. Every time I think I am getting better someone else brings another new disease into the house that spreads like wildfire. Point being that I have had a lot of time on my hands and actually found it just before you sent it. I plan to call the manufacturer to chat about it as mine is not the average Pontiac. The ability to adjust ride height without dropping out the springs and trimming them is definitely desirable. When I used to screw with this on a fairly regular basis I had a friend in the spring business who would look in the books and find a spring with the same od but a different rate and I would need to temporarily install and check the ride height, take them out and trim slightly, do it again not taking off too much because you can't put it back on. I might add that I had my dad's fully equipped repair shop and attached machine shop at my disposal to do it. At this point in my life the price is worth the adjust-ability. I am 76 next June, do not have a hoist at my disposal and am getting too damn old to be crawling around under a car. I like Last Indian's viewpoint on the disc brakes. When I actually did this for a living 25 years ago I had the luxury of seeing most of the cars that were on the road and being able to take dimensions and make notes that I could use to mix and match parts successfully. Things like OK this rotor has the correct bolt circle and setback but do the bearings fit my spindle. I always found a lot of satisfaction in taking a pile of scrap metal and turning it into something useful. Sitting here thinking, maybe I just need to take detailed measurements off of the Catalina and plan to spend a day at the local pick a part. whadoyathink?

      The 2020 Toyota Tacoma and 2020 Jeep Gladiator are closely rated mid-size pickups. The Tacoma is the established rival and the longest continuous mid-size pickup on sale stretching back to the 1980s—before it was called a Tacoma. The Gladiator, by contrast, is the newest mid-size pickup on sale, even though Jeep is hardly a newcomer. The...View the full article

      It’s important for sport sedans to stand out; Germans rivals have dominated the category since they invented it. The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia answers with uniquely Italian styling that is both sporty and sensuous. It also delivers the goods: agile handling, strong engines, and a thrilling performance model.

      Toyota is recalling older model RAV4, Celica, and Supra models for an airbag defect that could cause the inflators to rupture or the airbag to underinflate, thereby increasing the risk of injury in a crash. The automaker's announcement on Monday echoed one from Honda, who last week recalled 2.4 million older vehicles for the same issue. Toyota's...View the full article
