    Congrats! Welcome!

    its a solid kit. All the parts seem good quality, just double check the gaskets make sure they are not damaged. Worse case those are replace cheap at local store. Ive worked on a few 3.4L and ive put worse on mine LOL. They are solid motors Just keep Oil in them and coolent full and you be good to go.

    Also check your fan. Make sure bolts are tight and all that if moving properly and no wiggle. Also check the Idler pulley and fan clutch

    after driving it for awhile i think it needs new shocks, i don't want to throw a lot of money at the suspension right now what are my options, or should i just bite the bullet spend the money to lift.

    so i just realized it wasn't a 4x4 but thats fine for the deal i got, some backstory here:

    this is a car thats been owned by my uncle and his family since new. its been sitting for about 6 months, and my parents went over for Christmas and asked what they were going to do with it. My parents called me and asked me if i wanted it since i am across the country for now, the price was right so i said yes and they sent me some details. anyway my dad said it was a 4x4 but obviously it isn't. so it looks like this is getting a tune up and turned in to a daily driver and not the project 4x4 i was looking for. oh well i should be able to get my money back out of it if and when i sell it.
