Re: Suspension upgrade help for a newbie

Koni or Bilstein with springs is what you will find the majority of folks running on an XR. Next is Ground Control coilovers on the front where you cut the perch off the above mentioned Koni or Bilstein struts.

Re: WTB: 5 speed Xr in the NC/SC area

Looks like its a really nice car. :cheers The car has been painted, as that is not a factory color and the painted door handles, etc. etc. It IS an 88 (not an 87) as others have said.
