 Jon, don't want to be a downer here but I bought those exact shocks for my wagon and they were worst than the ones I took off................

 I got AC Delco ones, a little more money I believe and they were top notch......... Take a look at this link... It will be the same ones for your car!!!

 If you read the thread, even the new Napa ones were soft. The Delcos were nice and firm!

met with uncle bernie and gave me the engine =) itr's not the best looker but i shared my plans with him for it but everyone here will have to wait lol but here are a couple of pictures i went to canadian tire to get my battery charged and they told me it's dead and is a bad battery  being me i went home and hooked it up and guess what the engine turns over and over and over and over......... Thats how crappy tire lies to me lol i bet if my engine has sparkplugs and wires she would have fired right up . It just makes me steamy when they said it won't turn my car over at all and it's completly dead  dam it did =) the plan for mothers day is change the o2 sensors in my moms car fix some rust make her lunch and do an oil change. then mount my tranny. get my belts and spark plugs and new wires =)

I think the plugs you want for the engine are AC DELCO R45TS, if my memory serves me right. When you go to get parts, get them for an '84 Chev pickup 305. That way the guys at NAPA should be able to get anything you need...no more guessing :) Also if you CO-Op at the local GM dealer, they can get all the proper stuff as well. Jonathan it was a pleasure to meet you and your Mom today!!! I wish you were closer and I would help you out with your project more......will have to schedule a Saturday thrash to see if we can get you mobile!!!!
