Our GL had similiar problems. When you turned right, there was knocking like sound coming from the right rear wheel. Noise was caused by, how you say it, well the bearing of the wheel was bad and it was causing the noise. My mechanic said that bearings should be fixed soon as possible, because if it...

I have used Mobil oils in GLT and Teboil Diamond in GL. That Teboil is a local gas-station/service-station/oil refinery company here in Finland.

Koni lowering leaf springs? The actual springs are replacement items? If so, that's awesome. I'm guessing it can't run much boost with a DIR32, as they're tiny for a (2.0?). What is the MPI engine in the GLT? With carb that small, the ET/FT engine ought to wipe the floor with the carb one! Great to...

I advise to fix windshield leaking as soon as possible, because in our GL it wasn't been fixed and when I fixed it, it was a bit too late because the surrounding areas of the windshield had been rusted pretty badly. So it is best to fix leaking problems.

Stock rear silencer is kinda crap. So upgrading the exhaust system should be started by replacing the rear silencer. In GLT I have about 3" downpipe (not sure, could be a bit more than that) and 2.5" exhaust pipe with generic silencers. GL has 2.5" piping all the way and also generic silencers. Offt...
