Thanks, I got confused between 2 sites and the one that said it was a
drop in was talking about a 1986 car.

But here's another question.

I have found a (used I'm assuming) Jamex shock tower brace and am
wondering; am I just kidding myself that it is worth the
time/trouble/money to install this unit? All the sites which I have
read where people comment on the brace mention that it helps a lot on
the 82 era bodies. But a friend of mine who worked amateur rally teams
in Europe says that I will not perceive a difference on the street. I
ride motorcycles and on one I can adjust the suspension using a vernier
system and can clearly feel the difference between 6 thou clearance and
10 thou so I think I'll feel it but I don't know if it will be a full
day and $200 worth of difference I'll be feeling.

any feedback is appreciated.
