Check vertical control arm bolts and check subframe bolts.

My scrap guy has been saving every bit of easily removed aftermarket stereo stuff for me. Most sll of it isn't worth it's weight in scrap. 

However, he gave me this Monday:

not entirely sure when it was produced, but i found forum posts about the part number from 2001. So, period correct, and challenge budget benefits! Heres to hoping it works. 

I will say, however, the kenwood bluetooth unit i got from from gumby is awesome and will live in the car permanently. Just a much better piece of equipment than most anything else I've used.

found the noise.

Alignment should fix it. Maybe a couple washers as spacers.....

Definitely looks like the source of some scrapey-scrapey noises.  What is that?  Hard to see in the pic.

The rear tension rods for the suspension. Locates each side fore/aft in the chassis. 

Only the passenger's side hit. Which was the corner woth seriously wonky alignment numbers......

New numbers:

Front: -2.5 camber, all caster i could get, 1/16 toe out. 

Rear: -1 camber, 1/8 toe in.

 

Well see if i like it!

Talking out loud here, but why is there such an interference difference from one side to the other???

Its tight with proper alignment. It was eo far out it hit. Loose bolts probably don't help.

A guy named Vitor makes offset tension rods that allow for more clearance and wider tires. Just FYI.
