    Sparta/Cookeville is a great area, but getting crowded.

    Had a buddy in Sparta - GREAT area. But they still have winter though not like Up North. We're in coastal SE NC - beautiful and relatively warm all year though we do get a few overnights in the 20s so the bug population is kept at least a bit in check.

    Looking forward to a move towards eastern TN, probably vicinity of Clarksville/Northeast side of Knoxville. Probably still a few years away, but doing a lot of researching. Looking forward to warmer winter season and the ability to get out more.

    Hope it has a nice snooze. I love that our cars can be out and about all year - today will be 78*F if the weather folks are right. There's a reason we moved from Up North!

    this isn't commentary on the spring recommendations, more a beware post. I ordered new springs for the back of my 64 Buick wagon - and what I got were a much lighter rate spring. Contacted the seller, "oh we're sure those are the right ones" ... they aren't and the fight begins... the take away is know the coil count and material thickness and ask for that information from the seller before buying. I'm in the midst of the 'is it really worth the fight' since the springs are $40 a pair and I'd have to spend more money sending them back in the futile hope that they'll pay that too.... point is, ask now, pay later ;)

    Mopar rear springs? No problem..... Not really for towing but the price is certainly right.

    First step now is to tighten up the suspension. Can feel the front shocks bottom out on really rough roads. Pretty sure the seal on front left blew when I hit a nasty pothole in Illinois on the trip home from Power Tour.(can see some minor oil residue leaking directly below that shock)
    Iíve checked with UMI, they donít have anything for it, but some quick research Nate did for me shows that Viking might have a good set that will work. RideTech website has an adjustable set that will fit front, but nothing for the rear.
    I will put new rear springs on as well. The originals are flat level right now, no arch at all. We plan to find a small teardrop style camper to pull on long road trips, so a stout rear is important too.

    That wagon is fabulous. Looks like new and runs that way also. Great find/buy Jon!

    I like it . It takes me back to my first car , a 74 tan 4 door Plymouth satellite . It looked like an unmarked sheriff car around indy around 79 . Man that car had a hard life but never gave up .
