Well last month I wrecked my 1991 Pontiac Sunbird :( it was my baby... Pics can be seen here.www.sounddomain.com/id/twist12

Well I then bought my Uncles 1994 Cavalier Vl... Its nothing great performance wise but it gets me back and forth... Now i have some Questions about my Cavalier...

Where can i get Lowering springs for this vehicle? I checked out Eibach springs but those are like 380 bucks :eek: Is there any alternatives?

It also has a little ticking in the engine... My uncle said that it is the timing chain or somthing... Anyone ever messed with this...?

Thanks a lot,

Stockcavy...

timingchains don't usually make a "ticking" sound (if it did the timing would be sooo far off that the engine would run shiatty) a use a long screwdriver or a piece of vacume hose or get and a mechanic's stethascope and locate the sound..i bet you will prolly find it to be the injectors(o.k.)lifters(change the oil) or the rocker arms(adjust the valves)

I have the 2.2 as well. I just posted a while back about the ticking in mine. Seems to be the general idea that it is common for these engines. Mine will make a ticking sound till it warms up then it fades away. I wouldnt worry about it too much.
