Help, seriously

Iv been pulling this off for too long, i feel like im driving a **** box these days.

First, i have no wheel wells, they where ripped of along with the under engien bay piece that connect the wheel wells together.

Because of this, and snow getting everywhere, i just fried my windshield fluid tank motor.


second, the car is really hurting lowered like this. the goldlines (1.75) have probebly saged alot, and with the stock shock under soo much pressure, it feels like im driving without suspension at all, and i am probebly causing way too much stress on the frame and the rest of the suspension components. So i am lifting it back to stock. i dont care if it looks ugy anymore.


The problem is im on a strict budget, i cant spend that much.

so this is what i need.


Does anyone have stock shocks they dont want or will let go for very cheap ?


Where should i go for wheel wells, and the fluid motor. Will i find this at a scrape yard ? if so, where do i go, who do i call, will i have to take the part of the other car myself ???


Third, installation, i dont wanna pay 80 bucks an hour considering all of this will probebly be a 5-6 hour job. Who is willing to help. I have the garage, i will get down and dirty, i just need the tools and guidance on how to do everything. I will offer something in return, not 80 bucks an hour, but something.


Who can help me, i would really appreciate this.

So you trashed your back bumper? Sounds like a good story is behind that

nothing special really. I was at the cottege this weekend, coming home sunday, its part dirts road covered with snow. so the wheel well and the undrbody where all snow. then i got on the 417, and probebly with the speed and the fact that im Low, somehow the back right wheel caught on to the mud flap, shredded it and pulled the whole bumper towards it, shredding the top corner of the bumper, and in the processes bending the entire right side of the bumper underneath the car.

so the clips are all gone, a 6 inch piece in the top right corner is gone. and there is a big cut on the bottom where the bumper bent.



Having a lowered car, and driving the way i drive, and the places i drive, is not a good idea.
