That post was helpful.  Thanks a bunch.
I looked and looked and missed that one when I did search.

I kinda wish I could run an ur-q setup on there.  I don't like the idea of
having Progressive in the rear and Linear in front.  I prefer linear but the
H&R's are to low and hard for where I live.

Oh well, I have the suspension out of the car on the floor and tomorrow
night will mount up the new Shocks and Springs, Control Arm Bushings, Upper
mounts, etc.  Cant wait to drive it after that.

Thanks, and YES, your baby. (20v.org) is still a great resource.

Thanks
