@  Low-Speed : (19 November 2014 - 06:54 PM) the diameter on the large and small section of the strut above the perch, as well as the rod diameter
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 06:49 PM) What u need? There stock mopar shocks and springs lol
@  Low-Speed : (19 November 2014 - 06:25 PM) I mostly need measurements
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 06:01 PM) I put 4 new strut mounts on them. At 55k. The car got 59,619 miles on it
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 06:00 PM) I'm still on my stock ones. Ill be changing over this winter so if u need a set.
@  Low-Speed : (19 November 2014 - 05:32 PM) Better yet, is there anyone here with a set of stock shocks out of the car?
@  Low-Speed : (19 November 2014 - 04:10 PM) Kenny - check your facebook
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 12:32 PM) no miles on them.
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 12:31 PM) I also own a set of Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs
@  KennyL : (19 November 2014 - 08:58 AM) Sending a PM Mr. William, I have an idea.
@  KennyL : (19 November 2014 - 08:14 AM) Run the NEX if you're got them, they are much better quality than a slip-on coil-over. You can indipendantly adjust the ride height and the spring pre-load, is the main difference.
@  Dylan214 : (19 November 2014 - 08:05 AM) Being they fell in my lap I own a set of Koni adjustable/coil-over and NEX(Ebay 300$) I am still deciding what ones do I run
@  Low-Speed : (19 November 2014 - 06:56 AM) I just want a set of Maxspeed/DropZone style for now
@  KennyL : (19 November 2014 - 06:19 AM) I didn't think anyone still carried the NEX for this platform, that's good to know. The AMR is far exceptional in quality and custom made for your application. All dependent on budget, and I know yours is slim. The NEX set at that price is cheaper than they were new during the group buy. Probably the best deal in coil-overs to be found.

@  KennyL : (19 November 2014 - 04:01 AM) Sorry, William, can't let go of mine just yet. I did finally get an email back from AMR engineering, though. He said making a set of high quality coil-overs for the Stratus platform would be "a piece of cake, just another day at the office". $1600 to $1795 shipped. Check out the Neon AMRs, they're top quality. If I could afford a set right now, you'd be getting my Koni adjustable/coil-over setup on the cheap. Heh.
@  borgwarrior : (19 November 2014 - 02:44 AM) Sgtmyers, what do you mean by erratic? The misfires? Those i dont have. I'd try a higher octane fuel first though. I'll ask the club, maybe they have a solution.
@  Low-Speed : (18 November 2014 - 07:16 PM) Anyone have a set of eBay coil sleeves they want to let go cheap?
@  sgtmyers88 : (18 November 2014 - 07:13 PM) Borgwarrior How did you fix your erratic engine problem?
@  Low-Speed : (18 November 2014 - 05:23 PM) I am going to have to rename it Plan C at this point

Trying to get emission testing and the tech is getting "not ready" codes. I had the battery out replacing some wiring and was thinking this is what knocked me out. I suppose I need to drive the car a while, but how long is long enough to get the computer "ready" for emission testing?? I have no owners manual and my repair manual hasn't yielded the info.

Thanks!

"Not ready" could indicate an ECU failure as well, in which case no amount of time would fix it.

thats incorrect. not ready means you need to complete specific drive cycles for all of the emission controls to complete their self test. once that is done it will be ready. if you have $130 go to sears or auto zone and buy the innova 1003 code scanner. it will tell you wich sensors have completed the self test and wich ones have not. for the ones that have not, you can look in the owners manual and it will tell you how you need to drive to get it to do its test. normally 1-2 days of driving in your normal habits will put everything in the ready status.

the only problem is that every time you dissconnect the battery or use a scanner to erase the codes it gonna put it in the "OBD not ready" status until all the emmission control systems have finished self testing

Technically I was correct - if the ECU is bad, time would never correct it. A new ECU would. :lol:

But thanks for the much better answer and explanation. :whistle:

I definitely like the sound of this answer over Stratuscaster!! :whistle:
Ok, I'll run it through the motions and take it back. I get unlimited retests for my $25 fee, so I'll just use their machine until I pass.

By the way, I'm a cloud newb. I picked this 96 up a few weeks ago for a great deal from a family friend. So far, total investment is under $300 and hoping to run this baby for many miles.

Thanks for the help guys!
