what?? you guys aren't taking notes?? and remembering what car I have??

Sorry, shoulda thought before I posted.

Anyway, it's an 82 Coupe. I just had  the steering replaced and
Bilsteins installed so as far as I know everything *except* the
bushings were done. There are new rubber boots on the A arm bolts for
instance. The shop is encouraging me to do the bushings as they say
they are shot but with the big improvement from the upgrades it's
handling pretty good to me.

They have "dropped down" (their term) the subframe once in looking for
a rattle so I don't think anything is frozen up.

Thanks for any tips.
