    Sorry, no. I didn't think to take a shot of it. Had Oregon plates.

    I seldom have a camera or phone on me as well.

    And even if I did, I would not be able to post it anyways.

    We need a procedure in the "how-to" section on posting things on this forum for people like me.

    Did it look like this one?

    I've seen that same car parked in front of my house! (not a "plus", which is 1991)

    Scored the old front Tokico struts, be interesting to see if they'll still hold up a car.

    That's a lot of snow, did you grab the rear struts as well?

    Nope. they'll likely have stock 90 springs like the front.

    Dammit, I should have kept that SHO my secret!

    Rather, first removing the low control arm ball joint assembly with a 6' long pry bar, after raising the knuckle higher on the strut if necessary, will allow you to remove the strut from the knuckle. If the ball joint can't be removed because of incorrect service procedures limiting the travel of the control arm or strut rod, drop the subframe. Spread both the ball joint and the strut clamp before removal by hammering a small, then large screwdriver in the bolt split. Of course you'd only be at that point after freeing the completely rusty OEM sway-bar end links without a large bolt to keep them from turning. :p

    Seriously though, I got some good replacement parts off that car including the ignition switch harness.
