Default 05 pt vert info

Hi to all
I have had a bussy week found out that verts has there own seats(the hard way). Went to the salvage yard to get a seat to fix my seat so it can recline. They are not the same. Did find a seat just like mine black cloth and base came with it so I used the base for drivers seat fit just right. I do have a tan seat with base and drawer that I will ebay. I did get my strut bar on my car. Make a big difference in the way it handles. We don't talk about the dash light that is still not no. that is a very good thing. Thanks to all that help with the good info that was sent my way,,xtreme cindy ?looking at the hard floor mats are they good?

Did you have to wrestle the strut bar on or did it fit without forcing it?I have noticed a lot of people say they had to "muscle" theirs on but I didnt and mine does handle a little better but it's not really a big difference.

The strut bar is an aftermarket part that ties the strut towers together to help the car handle better.

I think it was a good move to get the bar I feel it handles better. Mine would drift to the right at times and I have not seen that sence I put the bar on.

Strut bars are definitely worth the money... especially on a 'vert. Any part you can add which ties the left and right sides of the vehicle together will be a big help in the handling dept.
