1. No, front and rear can be done separately. 2. No, wheel bearing are generally changed only when they fail. 3. Springs are fine, unless you're looking for a performance or appearance upgrade 4.

Joy of joys.. New stereo

Well, the first official "just for me" work I've done on the 850 was putting in the Alpine stereo I ordered through Crutchfield. It ended up being 150 bucks cheaper with all of the free 'throw-ins' at Crutchfield compared to my local Best Buy... I wanted a stereo to control my ipod, and so...

Re: 850 (non-turbo) 1997 - Making It Faster

Sigh. Yes, I know all about the damper on one side of the NA throttle plate. Sure, you remove it and you get a bit better throttle response for the first few degrees of rotation.

Here are the picture files. Please email me a_hamza3390@yahoo.com if anyone has any questions. It worked great! A few small lessons along the way but overall much better than dropping the rear end.

Re: 850R 1996 Warning lights come on during acceleration

I don't believe that turning the car off in reverse has anything to do with your problems. 2 weeks after I got my 850 I spun out into a corn field after a heavy rain. My car was rolling backwards while in drive (aka, it should have been going forward), so I pressed the brake pedal and turned off the...

Mangefine Filter Installed w/ Pictures
