  1. Start with checking your wheel bearings, then move to your steering components. Often the gearboxes just wear out and a new one can make it drive like new. Have someone move the wheel while you watch the steering and see where the slack is coming from. A car that old, I would expect it all is worn out, but some may have been already replaced.

    Air Shocks

    Are you sure you want to do that? I've had air shock after air shock fail. The ride is terrible. Fenders come down on tires when shocks fail at the worst times. Often cheaper to add a leaf than to purchase air shocks and you still get to run a shock for dampening.
  3. I have yet to see a driven Pontiac engine without this issue. I have tried many paints, I cannot find any Pontiac colors that do not burn. When I arrive at a show, the trick is to pop the hood and use a paper funnel to spot spray paint these spots before judging or displaying the car. Takes about 2 minutes and it looks like you have the magic formula that never darkens.
  4. So the answer is: you don't have to change the spark plug gap, but it may run better if you move it up to .045. Remember to check your total timing as many HEI's put in too much mechanical advance.
