Sweet. Stan (Naomi's car) has a late model alternator that Jason hooked me up with. Works a treat.

Dang, that sucks. What strut mounts are you running? Aftermarket, OE? Miles?

Knowing this car's history, I'd guess they were OE or equivalent. Hard to say for sure since they have been in there a looooong time. Fortunately my old 744 has all the parts I need to keep this on the road

New-ish:

If those are new(er) aftermarket mounts, you may be dealing with a failure again in the not-to-distant future. They're known to fail pretty quickly. Heck, there's even rumblings that the newest OE Volvo mounts aren't that great. If you go with BNE mounts, which have had some issues as well, I'd go with the BNE Select ones. The full on adjustable versions don't work that great with stock diameter springs.

I'll second that comment on the BNE Select's, got them on my wagon as well, somewhere around 30k on them so far. I am getting a clunk now, haven't confirmed where it's coming from yet though, but those plates make a big difference in handling.

Right on! Since the wagon is the family work truck I will add those to the upgrade list

lunchb0x and I have been upgrading the sub and amp wiring on the Brodozer. Turns out one of my 3 Kenwood amps has an internal issue Swapped in another for now while we figure it out

So we scored a free wagon from an old customer. It was wrecked really hard. He was able to get out and walk away Apparently he had a pallet of stove wood pellets in the back. They figure the car and the pellets made a combined effort to dissipate the wreck. The pellets are all over the car as you may suspect
