My names Zach Dopps, I live in beautiful Washington and just picked myself up a 1991 Loyale sedan 4wd.

142k
5 speed
stock suspension, engine, trans

I love the car and was able to pick it up for only 1200.

Anyways, I have been doing a ton of research on this site. I want to lift the car 3-4 inches and bigger tires etc. Also I was wanting to replace the current hideous bumpers front and rear. Adding lights where I please :eek:

I have accumulated some question you may have assumed, I was just wondering where the best place to post them would be? Mainly concerning dropping rear axle, front x-member, suspension etc...

Welcome!
You'll find the Old gen forum has a lot of answers specific to your questions.
The Off-road forum has a lot of good info on lifts and that sort of thing as well.

Offroad FAQ will help immensely.
Please, look it over before asking questions, it will probably answer most if
not all your questions.
Also, since you're in the PNW, you might look up One Eye (Jeff).
He's nearby you and if you're really nice to him, is an awesome guy for
assisting in building your own lift.

Also, search.
You will get yelled at a whole lot less if you just search for things and read
the threads that you find.
Another little goodie is there is a little box that says "related threads" at the
bottom of the page.
Feel free to look those over and see if any apply to your situation!
Resurrecting an old thread is looked upon much more highly than starting a
new one.

Anyway, welcome to the board and hope you find the answers you're looking
for :)
Enjoy your stay.

Wow much appreciated advice, everyone.

Very interested in doing some quality 4x4ing in this thing. When I lift her I'll post up some pics :)
