    No, but I am guessing that there shouldn't be an SR Escort?

    S/R was a ZX2 model with better "S/R" tokico's and lowering springs, a factory cold air intake, a tuned computer, energy bushings, exhaust...some things I'm forgetting.

    This has a zx2 complete swap including a 5 speed (with a SPI 5th). It has a cqw3 S/R computer. I have NOS S/R struts, energy bushings, cold air intake... looking for proper wagon springs for the struts. It's a work in progress buts it's coming along quickly.

    I'm not sure what to name it just yet. A lot of people can't tell me what it is from the front haha

    LOL! I did the same thing but without the "Escort". People think the wagon is a Subaru due to the equal length headers.

    Shouldn't you be relieved to know that you will be protected from getting cancer from the rear springs while driving your car?

    But you are very lucky - I cannot even access Rockauto on the Internet for the last week or so.

    "I'm having H&R make a set of springs for this wagon build. They said I have to wait until mid July :-/"

    Have you asked H&R if they have the relevant California proposition 65 documentation for their springs?

    Presumably those politicians were responding to their voting base, or vocal complainers.

    I'm a fairly liberal guy but when I hear Diane Feinstein, my senator, talking about guns it just irks me. She spouts off idiotic "facts" that have no basis in reality.

    Yup. I'm probably more centrist than anything so I guess that would mean I'm more of an independent so I like and hate ideas that come out of both sides but it irks me whenever I hear politicians stating "facts" that are completely wrong or outright lies. Our fearless leader is the lead progenitor of that.

    We have alot of "consumer rights" that were talking points and bills before I was born.

    All I know is that I would have maybe voted for 10% of it.

    Anyway, I'm always quite careful when ordering "wagon" springs. I have tried a few times, and the part numbers came back as regular springs. It put me in a bind as I cut one a couple years ago.

    All of my parts cars since have had broken coils on the rear. So I have been struggling to find a good one.
    It took me giving up on my "2nd class keeper" escort to finally secure a spring for my "good" wagon.

    Shouldn't all 91 up wagon springs be the same?
