Does the clunk happen only when backing up and turning?

Have you looked at any of the control arm bushings, or upper strut mounts or sway bar end links?

I have not. Im almost positive the upper strut mounts are brand new because complete bolt in (new springs and everything) struts were bought. The sway bar links are brand new.

Used some aircraft stripper on the wheels. Looks a TON better!

Not sure if that was the best idea, but it has been done. Did you save your old springs? Those new ones are no the same!

Damn, those are very rare. You may be able to get some replacements from Delco(better, but not the same as stock).

They are the top of the line springs(most aggressive). The GT/Indy's didn't get them, nor did the Z26(which could not get the rears anyway). I forget get about the GTZ(not sure, but I don't think so).

Um Indys had FE7 suspension just like a GTZ... They are not the same as a GT.
