@  KennyL : (26 August 2014 - 08:35 AM) I'm going to study the undercarriage of the car more, anyway. Figure out some seriously solid meant of getting things tied together and reinforced.
@  KennyL : (24 August 2014 - 07:16 PM) I heard it caused weird feel and additional "push" instead of helping. I'd probably just have to try it out, since my suspension setup is so modified already.
@  KennyL : (24 August 2014 - 07:15 PM) I have the front already, and I actually heard bad things about it. Did you notice a negative difference in the front with it?
@  theronz : (24 August 2014 - 09:30 AM) rear lower bar is rusted on lol, and front lower bar is so bent i cant unbolt it. from hitting chunks of ice last winter.
@  KennyL : (24 August 2014 - 04:56 AM) I'd drive up for the engine if I had the cash. Probably not worth the drive just for the rear lower tie bar...heh.
@  theronz : (23 August 2014 - 11:16 PM) everything is just sitting. come take parts off of it! get a deal lol! seriously.
@  theronz : (23 August 2014 - 11:13 PM) suks i cant find time to part my car for you guys. anyone for a package deal? i'm in 46628.
@  sgtmyers88 : (23 August 2014 - 10:16 PM) Aww man sorry to hear that
@  borgwarrior : (23 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) Pictures tomorrow... :(
@  borgwarrior : (23 August 2014 - 10:16 AM) Left doors, and b pillar trashed.
@  Hyper4fx : (23 August 2014 - 08:52 AM) Agree... even shading them really diminishes the brightness.
@  Stratuscaster : (22 August 2014 - 01:46 PM) Why would you want to diminish the already crappy light output of our headlights with covers? :huh:
@  pursuader : (22 August 2014 - 11:46 AM) Several Performance pulleys left !

My A/C compressor left a big puddle of bright green dyed oil under it, so I think it's probably done for. I assume that it'll be fine if I disconnect the clutch so it can't engage (in case it tries to seize up), but just in case, I'd like to have a belt handy to bypass it.

Anybody know the length I need offhand? I don't want to dig around in there if I can help it. I have enough other stuff to do.

Another quick method to prevent unwanted clutch engagement is to pull the fuse/relay etc (not sure which it is) in the under hood compartment.

I know the measurement of the belt is in the part number. I want to say its in centimeters. I want to say its the last few digits in the part number. You can use some string and measure it, and then see if the parts store has a belt around that number via part number. That's how I did it when I installed my UDP and ODP.

Millimeters actually... well, who knows though with different brands.

No problem. I'm just trying to help him out. Thanks for the correction. I wasn't sure. I'm definitely missing my stratus...I need to get it running again. I have to sell my turbo set up first however. I'm just going to go with a 10.5 bottom end and big cams.
