Hi Roland,
Welcome to the site. Nice Malibu wagon. Could you fill us in on what's done to it and what further plans you have for it?

Thank you for the warm greeting

To the Malibu: First i have to optimize the Suspension. At the Moment i have BRM Springs and Hijackers at the Rear. The Hijacker System is dead, and the Springs are not make for a G Body Wagon. I think i go with Moog 5660 in the front and Cargo Coil 507 Springs in the rear. All around with Bilstein Shocks. I live in the Mountain with a Million of curves on the street :). So the car has to handle good around the Corners. I also load the Station wagon often, so i Need a "stiff" Suspension at the rear.
Maybe i optimize the front geometry with taller ball Joints and/ or modified upper control arms. But I don not know, what the best solution is for me, regarding to Price- Performance Ratio.

Next year i will Change the engine to a 350 Vortec and install a 4 Speed Transmission

That is planned for the Moment. i'm sure there will come many different things additional ;-)
