i've been to countless junkyards but i havent been to a pull a part yet.

do you just pay an admission, find out where your particular car is and then just have at it?

also, i saw something about no jacks so how am i supposed to remove brake calipers, shocks etc. ?



what cars and years are interchangeable (mostly suspension, brake , axles) with my 86 GL 2wd, 5 spd, hitachi carbed, wagon?


thanks, Bill

Yup you pay admission and go hunting, as far as the jack goes, we have a machine that lifts the cars up and u stack tires under it, and then go to work. as far as interchangeability goes there are other far more knowledgeable about that then I and i;m sure they will chime in.

The ones over here, you pay one dollar and have at it. They tell you to "get creative" if you need to get something off the car where it needs to be moved, but for the most part all the cars are set up on wheels that are welded together.

Yeah, the cars are off the ground and you can just go to town taking what you need.
