The ford tempo springs do fit the front ea82 struts not perfict fit but i am running them on mine with no issues the front end will be very stiff i have a 12000lb winch sticking way out front of my rig that soffend up my springs but there still stiff and will give a little lift however your camber will be off the best lift is still the 2" lift blocks they fix the camber issues as there is no built in adjustments the camber only realy matters on the street so probably not a issue on this rig

So I'm getting really close to finishing my car for my trip. I'll post updated pictures once completed.

I've got a high idle issue which I hoped replacing the O2 sensor was going to remedy, it did not. From searching the form it seems that the Coolant Temp Sensor is likely the culprit. Hard to find those things for a reasonable price. The part listed in the post I was reading was




Now with that in mind I also found the following;




My guess is the second one is for the temp gauge rather than the fuel mixture and that site has it mislabeled? Good news is I left all my body work budget intact until the end as I was worried I'd have an expensive part like this pop up unexpectedly so I do have the budget if I need to get the $95 part. 


If anyone has any lines on where I can get one for a deal that would be appreciated because I still have a few other plans that I was hoping to save budget for. 


FYI Budget $1000.00 current expenses $820.00 (including purchase of car)


I did manage to find a used intercooler off of a turbo jetta that was more appropriately sized for my little turbo so I have my WRX intercooler for sale if anyone is interested
