Re: Front Main Spring

I also added them to both the front and rear when I put new springs on my car a couple years ago. I like the idea of keeping dirt and grime out of the springs.

Re: Quick question

You'll need to rejet your carb if you run an air filter, as they were not stock at all.

If you have your engine (splash) pans installed as factory, there isn't a need for a filter.

Re: Rainy Day Thought

I had my vacuum wiper restored. The unit itself works amazing. It does an ok job of clearing the windshield, but I do use Rain-X still.

Here is a video of the wiper in action on the way to work:...

Re: Great experience with Schwalm's!

Short answer, the prices are on their website listed in my original post.
Long answer, I saved for an entire year. But this should last me well into my 60-70's. I am 38 now :)
