    V6?

    Screw that...put a V8 in it!!!

    Also, check the frame where the rear shackles attache - frames are notorious for rotting completely back there. Or perhaps previous owner already had it repaired/fixed.

    Good Luck!! Lots of parts out there for it....the market for aftermarket, used parts, & OEM, is HUGE!
