    Well yesterday I brought the 95 into a shop to have the ac looked at and they said basically I need everything. They wanted $1700 to do it but I passed, went home and ordered parts. Compressor, evap, high line, and condenser. Found a shop to do the labor for 250. Oh and my cobra wheels came in yesterday as well.

    Good choice, doing research is always advised. I did the rear springs on my pony and saved as well.

    These new 3.7 ponies will fishtail & wheelhop from the factory, everyone needs to lower the rear to correct "roll center" and gain grip especially with lca brackets.

    Most will w stock rear control arms. I put springs on the 95 for a few reasons: The oems had over 300k miles, looks, and a tad performance gain.

    Dang, I wish you would have posted before buying. I took all those A/C components off my '95 even though it blew super cold air, cause I was young and dumb and wanted the extra space under the hood and weight savings... I have it all up in my attic just sitting. At least you will have all new parts though.

    Damn. They wanted $1300 in labor? Even if they said the parts were $700 that is $1000 in labor. If you found everything- compressor, condensor, lines, receiver/dryer, etc. for $420 new that is a steal. Where did you score this?
