[DML] Re: door struts



Although my poor car has been sitting in the driveway for a couple of
weeks (she needs engine work I'm afraid,) I have also noticed my door
struts' change in performance. I went out there to start it up and get
some CD's out of my back seat- er, shelf. The temperature went down to
around 1 degree last night, and this in MO! Passenger side sags more
than the driver's side, but the driver's torsion bar is a little
overtight. This unfortunately causes my gull wing to bounce a little.
I don't want to mess with that unless I'm with at least 2-3 other
experienced D mechanics. :(

I have PJ Grady struts on there, but I don't know how old they are as
they were on the car when I bought her in '04. I should probably
replace them and have that bar worked on. I'd rather spend $2K beefing
up the engine, not just one door hinge. In the words of the great Doc
Brown, "Damn! Gotta fix that thing."

Man, what's the deal with this coldness? It's currently 5 degrees in
KC proper! I moved down here from MI to get away from doing stainless
donuts in the snow.
