      Those projectors are sick! I wish my 97 sport had clear headlights so they could be converted to do this.

        • I broke a strut the other day, lots of noise banging around. At first I thought it was a broken sway bar bracket, but on close inspection it's the strut rod, spins around by hand at the strut tower. So I guess I'll be changing the struts soon!

                      • Installed my brand new Bat struts and springs!!! Also Replaced rear swat bar links,

                        I had a shake in the steering to wheel for about 4 years. Was told before strut front mounts were worn, so far on the 10 mile drive no steering wheel shake. Will go on 65 mile trip tomorrow. Hoping for no steering wheel shake!✌️

                        • My Mystique's 2-year-old Monroe front struts started squeaking. Would have replaced them yesterday but O'Reilly sent me the wrong "free" lifetime warranty replacements. Hope the spring doesn't mind being compressed for a few days. Conveniently, this comes as I was replacing ball joints and inner+outer tie rods.
