Re: '85 XR4TI carpet underlayment question

I've had good success using heli-coils if the nuts are not spinning.

If they are then, well, you've got the right idea.

Re: XR Rear Suspension Recommendations

11" 300lb 5" diameter rear spring with isolator. If you purchase a spring that is ground flat on both ends there is an energy suspension isolator that works well I believe the part number is 9-1620G. Koni Reds in the back work nicely or a Boge/Sachs/Kyb. Bilsteins and Koni yellows will probably be s...

Re: Carlisle 2015 (NOW 2017) Build or Bust - My 87 XR build

Are those the adj. Koni reds?

FWIW I have those on the back of my car, must be at least 15 years old and have probably been on 3 different cars, but they still adjust fine and work great.

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

Pictures Showing the ksport coilovers I ran on my car. These are from a 2001 Jetta. The spring is a 125lb 12" with 3" of preload. This made the car lower about 1" more when it was set on the ground. Total drop being in the neighbor hood of 3-4". You can see how you the setup is identical to how an x...

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

the vw strut is assembled the same way as an xr strut. you would want to undo the nut that holds the vw bearing onto the strut and put the lower top mount onto it. xr from bottom to top: upper spring mount -> bearing -> lower top mount -> nut -> bushing -> upper top mount -> nut the mk4 incorporates...

Re: AC Receiver Dryer Sourcing

I doubt such a thing exists. There is a NOS unit on ebay right now. I would contact Vintage Air, tell them what you're trying to do and they can help you out.
