    What is correct Front Grille?

    Some are vented: Some are not: It looks like if the non vented version is used, air would be drawn from lower down on the Front Grille.

    Looking for rear spring solution

    My wagon rides 2" lower in the rear than in the front with stock suspension. I theorize that some of this is due to the 5sp conversion...that is that the stick trans is lighter than the ZF. The car came with "luxury" rear springs: "1BA" Im looking for the "1BB" or even the "1BF" Rear Springs...
