I have been in communication with Super Pro in Australia with the possible of these bushings fitting the 1st gen rack . I will keep you posted.
I was wondering if 3000gt sway bars are interchangeable with the 1st gen. Since the suspension is the same, could they be used in a 1st gen. It would open up more choices for our cars. It would be ok if it needed a few modds for the install.
I am having a problem with my car cutting out under partial throttle on hills. If I am climbing a hill at 10 psi at 3000 rpm the car starts to buck and stutter. I am not getting knock counts when this happens. Any idea what is wrong? Spark gap is right. Has new spark plugs, wires and fuel...
I have been searching the different Mitsubushi web sights. I came across installing 3000gt Bilstein HD inserts in a Galant strut housing. They also used a rear shock from a mid 80's BMW 325 . I found this at

I was on the Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 Forum - E39A 4G63 web sight . Curtis one their more knowledgable people there. He made the clam that a 95 Mustang rear sway bar will fit a 1st g with some minor adjustments. Has anybody looked into this? The 95 rear bar is 27mm or 1 1/16 diameter. This could...

I was checking out an evo forum and they have a kit from Whiteside.The bushings help correct the bump steer for the rear suspension. Has anybody checked the rear suspension on a 1st gen or a 2nd gen for bump steer? How did you lessen the bump steer?
I live at 7500 feet. I don't think my B.O.V is opening up fully.I have a factory 92 B.O.V.I checked my valve,it started opening at 53.3 kPa or 17" of vacuum .fully opened at 20" of vacuum. I don't get 20' of vacuum.Do they make an adjustable B.O.V or one for high altitude?
Has anybody built my heim joint shifter cable end at the shifter?It was posted in the tech section. I felt it helped the feel of the shifting.I also have the solid ends at the trans and the symborski kit. I would like to know if anybody has had the success that I have had?
I did something a little different with the rear sway bar links. I have heim joints at both ends with a male an a female theads. It worked out very well. I attached a heim joint to the sway bar. Then at the lower control arm. The sway bar end was bolted to it. The lower control arm,I bolted 2...

two 5/16 heims with studs
