    You can just have your rears rebuilt for $80 each.
    Fronts are new at about $100 each
    I have part numbers on my GTP site.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I am sending mine out tomorrow to have rebuilt.

    I'll find out soon. I do not think one of mine is fixable. The top of the shaft is bent a little.
    Sending them out today.

    Part of the rebuild is to inspect the piston shaft for excessive wear or other damage. If there is, they are supposed to replace it. That may come as an extra fee, though.

    They were sent off.
    Also ordered Raybestos "professional grade" ball joints.
    These used to be Spicer and sold to Raybestos.
    Looking at SEMA these seem to be the best I found.
    Should have the rear suspension all freshened up by time the shocks get back here.

    Ball joint press from local NAPA store, free loan. IT worked perfect.

    Really have not had an issue on the street. But then not a lot of power yet.
    But after a few changes, it might need it. Also will help for the autocross.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    I wonder if it might upset the car? I know I remember reading that the Lotus Elise/Exige with the track pack that came with the LSD actually handled worse with it, but people wanted it, so they put it in.

    Most GTP's did come with a LSD…."I heard", but no one says that their car has one yet.

    But not all did, and for sure not mine.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Johnny, you really should bring this up to the PNW FWD mopar spring meet. I know its not FWD, but Im not gonna complain lol. You could also maybe bring some of your products and set up a little vendor table. Most SRT guys I talk to dont even know about your products. Id have to talk to the wife, but you might be able to crash at my place so your not doing all the driving in one shot. Id even throw up on the FB page that the event is being sponsored by Polybushings lol.

    Re: 1990 Consulier GTP Targa

    Question.

    It was advertised at 200hp. Stock TII had 175hp on paper (back then, today that would transform into what, 140?)

    What would make them say that.
    Was the LM modified or anything else?
