Put car on jack-stands.Remove Steering column. Undo all wires to lights.Drop exhaust. ( all of it) Remove interior, seats, carpet, kick panels.Remove back storage area bins on floor. Spray all bolts with PB blaster for two days before you start.Look for the old rubber body cushons, there is a rusty bolt behind all of them. Call Eckler's and order a body bushing and bolt set. Don't forget to mark your body shims as you remove them. Enjoy.
