If it's a 911 I think you should wire in relays - will help any headlights on that car but especially H1s or H4s. Even better, contact Rothaus (Engelburt) who sells LED light as direct replacements....

Bob, I'd pop out the pistons and clean them up if they don't look nice and shiny on the sliding surfaces. They're steel in that car and easy to work with (and replacements are cheap, but I've only...

I've done it in the garage, but for not much money I brought the whole struts to a shop that had a pro stand-up one, and they did it in SECONDS! Would never use the home spring compressor again.

Having purchased an engine from Peter Dawe, I can tell you that he and Jay Counterman are a solid 4 hours from Potomac, MD. But it was well worth the drive from my point of view.
