Default What 244 GLT parts can I take and put on my 244 DL?

Tomorrow I'm going to the pick n pull to pull some sway bars off a GLT for my DL. Since GLTs are becoming harder to find in junk yards what parts should I pull while I'm there?

Depends on the year... If you're talking about the blue '82 244 Turbo at Moss Landing, it probably is pretty well stripped by now, being that it has been in the yard for just over three months. Could grab the trim, if it's still there, black commando bumpers, front spoiler, any gauges (if they're still there), suspension components, etc...

Yup thatís the one. You think the sway bars are still on or is it not worth the drive?

It's been over 3 months. You never know sometimes I go to a yard and some cars are never touched but this is a cali yard. I bet its just a shell right now. It also might not be in the yard. Some yards are lazy to update inventory.

I was at the yard a few weeks ago - it still had the sways.

Not much else.

The anti roll bars are worth it. Install them with poly bushings and they will give you a nice handling improvement.
