I have an 87 XT with blown air suspension(figures)... i also have a 93 loyale with "ok" suspension but a blown head gasket. Can i put the loyale suspension onto the XT... if i can... is there anyone in the DFW area that would want to help me do the conversion.. in return you can have whats left of the loyale.. good motor (except for the gasket).. new radiator.. new rack and pinion/ pwr steering pump... cd player... Let me know!!

its an easy swap.. I would be happy to help..


be warned though. using loyale suspension on your XT will make it sit high.

DFW is a big place.. can you be a little more specific about your whereabouts?

If I remember correctly, to do the suspension swap on an XT using Loyale struts, you need the 2WD struts on the front, and 4WD struts on the rear to get the car to sit properly.
