On second thought, you probably dont want my front hubs. I just get them torn down and they are awful. You can still have them, but dont count on them casue theyll need a rebuild too.

Has anyone yet torn apart the front hubs to actually say for yes or no if they can be rebuilt or are we still basing on older word of mouth here and the TSM?

Other than said wear on the bearings everywhere and a lot of old rubber in the seals, bushings and boots it looks like a solid eagle with no body rust and a lot of options. Just a LOT of miles on the odometer. At that price I'd head out with cash in hand and if you can verify the underside and suspension supports aren't rotted out you got a solid project car candidate.

Thank you guys for all the insight. Now I know quite a bit more about the hubs on these cars than before! I might not be checking it out this week anymore bc my gf’s check engine light just popped on so I have to address that first, as she’s my ride. I’ll update this post when I see it in person and try to fire it up!

Fair enough and thanks, I appreciate the offer regardless. Once I get a chance to get out there and chk it out I’ll have a better idea what the deal is.

This is the plan!
