wife; can I have it
me; um, no.. you wanted a mustang
wife; when is that gonna happen
me; off to dog house..

goodyear belts 1-2 bucks hoses 7-9 bucks..
trw ball joints for the fiero 4 bucks..
new g.m. starter for the SS 34 bucks, didn't need but at 34 bucks..
clapper rebuild kits 9 bucks
wheel cyl 2.50
e brake cables 3-9 bucks..
brake pads (wagner)7 bucks
shoes 3.97
sadly even with the shipping, if I bought the stuff at my work and bought the cheaper house imported junk it'd have spent 125-150.oo more.. even with my discount..
most of the stuff I don't need yet, but extras on hand are handy..

goodyear belts
goodyear hoses
trw ball joints (for fiero close out, 4 bucks, lowers uppers where 6.95)

what else I buy..
ac delco drums 9.5x2.5
headlights, sylvania

so doubt all you want..
are they not factory part if they didn't come out of a g.m. dealerships parts dept.??
ac delco is ac delco.. unless it's there oil filters, and then there is ac delco elcheapo(made in china) and ac delco (s) made here and cost 3 times the cheaper jobber ac delco oil filter

nice try tho.. total fail, but nice try..

the grand mark '99 the upper ball joints trw (factory ford part) lowers are moog a arms, ilder arm was trw, pitman was trw, tie rods moog(trw disco's) tie rod sleaves moog
pads wagner, rotors ford , plugs autolite, no wires coil on plug,
car needs a new balancer.. it'll be ford if I can find one..
wifes sport trac, all new front end parts upper/lower ball joints, moog, (not aval from ford) tires are goodyears like factory, plugs autolite, wires autolite, air filter/oil filter motorcraft/
brakes are whatever the dealer we bought it from installed(rear) front are motorcraft, oil is mobil 1..
