You need to go for a triple digit blast in the Pig. This thing is fun!
UNGN, the former member/man/myth/legend, has excellent setup information here. It doesn't have to be expensive to work well. The only aftermarket part, perse, is the spindles. The rest is a mixmatch that mixes very well.
Get as much caster and camber in as you can; it makes a big difference.

are you sway bar bushings tight could be the click you hear when you drive. without looking at it i couldn't tell you what the exact problem is. tire should wiggle a little from wheel bearings but a click is not good. if you can't diagnose i would take it to a couple of different garages and have them look at it to see what they come up with.

This weekend I'm gonna put it on my ramps and take a video of underneath. Want to get some opinions on how bad the rust is.

"Click" sound may have been a bad description to use. Everything is tight. Your right. Should just get an inspection somewhere else. I got bored and put the car on the ramps. And did a video recording of underneath the car to see what people think of it as far as too much rust or it's decent. I put the phone on a creeper and tried to slowly go around the car.....not happy at all. I kinda feel lost now......like this will turn into a huge money pit fast. To me it looks like it needs alot of metal work or am I being to picky? I feel the only way to fix it is for a frame off.....but no way could I afford it...and i dont think doing that to this car would make sense......you guys want to see the video? Or should I start a new thread?
