Latest update.... The Stormtrooper is still on jackstands. I haven't been able to devote nearly enough time to working on it as I hoped, but should be able to wrench for a while tonight. May acually get her back on the road for a shakedown by the end of the week. I've got the passenger side Upper and Lower control arms (with powerflex bushings) replaced along that side's tierod. Driver's side is partially disassembled but not much else to do besides installation of the new parts. I'm also going to install the Eibach sway bars (arrived on Friday) and swap out the motor and tranny mounts. Also noticed that my "new" (10,000 mile old) front sway bar endliks are I ordered these:

Also working on a "trick" solution for the rear endlinks....

She should be a whole lot of fun once I'm all done! Then it's time for vanos seals and cooling system!!
