    I had some bearing noise when driving the car, so I assumed it was the rears, since I didn't hear it when I bought the car. Out came the axles, and the bearings had some slop in them...so I replaced. noise was still there:rant:

    So today I started with the left front bearing and this is what I heard...

    I replaced the inner left bearing that was pretty much toast...still have a bit of noise, so I will order new inners and outers for both sides. Maybe next week.

    I also bought a Custom Autosound radio to fill the blank space in the dash, along with a woodgrain kit. Busy times ahead! I will have this car at the BCA national meet in Brookfield WI.
