Re: Rear suspension on 89 200T

I just wanted to thank everybody who replied and gave such great advice.
The help was greatly appreciated and saved my behind.

Just as FYI, I ended up taking the rear struts to a parts and machining
shop in my area, and they rebuilt both for little money.  They used an
impact wrench on them and had them done in no time at all.

Again, thanks for all the help,
