finding it to be a challenge finding some (all) parts for the front suspension on this car.
rockauto lists a few parts, but trying to find parts locally- :roll:
most part #s are good, but no stock :x
looking for the front stabilizer bushings- have not been able to find any listings for them.
anyone find decent alternatives?
one good note-ordered new hatch supports from gm- $30 each
will modify a honda :oops: blower motor resistor to fix the inop resistor in the heater box
there must be parts from another make/model to fit.

Have you tried alibaba?

Not sure but the Suzuki Alto suspension may be similar to the MK1.. and it was in production longer in other parts of the world.

my next route was to pull the old bushings out, and try to find a comparable size.

thanks, I completely forgot about the Suzuki alto..... :oops:

I will be in Victoria next week, wont have the time (or the need) to look for parts.

a week off work, spent at my buddies cabin and/or on his boat 8)
