Re: Soften Up the Ride

I put in new Monroe Severe Service struts. The ride isn’t much different from the stock struts, but the handling seems better from being lower.

Re: Goodridge brake hose kit for PPV now available

While I’d love to spend the bucks on bigger calipers, I’ve got my first of 3 kids about to head to college in a few short years. I’ve got to keep upgrades on the 9C3 in the cheaper side. I already have Power Stop rotors and pads and thought that was about as far as I could go. A month or so ago I wa...

Re: Getting rid of old suspension parts

Idk why everyone hates on the 2011 struts. I think mine rides great. Was stiff as hell with stock springs. On SS 2017 springs rides great. When I wrote about changing springs I was convinced to lose at least the front struts. The fact that you can’t buy that part number backed up the idea that they...

Getting rid of old suspension parts

Since dropping the 9C3 I’ve been looking at the stock struts and springs in my garage. Very little miles on them, but from the super stiff ‘11 year. What should I do with them? Throw them in the land fill? Donated them to a local junkyard (if they even take stuff) or try selling them? Opinions appre...

Re: Complete Statesman interior

I am interested in the rear interior. I'm in Europe so shipping would need to be direct to here I’m not laying claim to it. Feel free to contact the guy. His email is obviously “coded”. The quote he has for shipping is for 3 cubic meters, which now that I think about it, seems pretty big. He may ha...

Looks crazy clean. Laughed at the SS badge though
Me too. The small ones on the fenders are ok but the one inside is tacky. And I wouldn’t consider a 6 an SS.

Re: Statesman interior for sale

The wheels were boxed individually. Was roughly $60 for wheel company to ship to overseas shipper. $140 from shipper's warehouse in Oz to their warehouse in Indianapolis. Fedex was another $110 from there to Boston area. I'm sure it'll be pricey, but might be doable. Worth looking tinto anyway. Sin...

Re: I came (back) from the land down unda

Cool stuff! Never been but would love to go... maybe when the kids are grown. How long is the flight? Thanks for posting the pics. See much reverse badging (Holdens with Pontiac/Chevy badges)? -J Looks like the same thing everyone and their mother do on the caprice Facebook page. Spend $100’s of do...

Re: Statesman interior for sale

Have you looked into a dedicated shipper? I used Cheetah Exports out of Indianapolis. He's an Aussie who runs containers back and forth from here to Oz. Might be worth looking into. I know yours will be a much bigger shipment, but I shipped a set of wheels through them with no issues. Good luck How...
