    Headed to Junk-yard, any items I should look out for?

    I'll soon be going to a U-Pull-It junkyard. So far I'm planning on getting a fuel pressure regulator, torque struts/dampers, oil cap, chrome exterior door trim, center armrest, radio knobs, and possibly ignition module.

    Are there any easy/cheap items I should try to get that could save me trouble in the future, or that would be nice to have? I just want to make sure I've got all my bases covered before I head out. Thanks.

    Junkyards are great for scoring good interior/exterior body parts. However, I wouldn't trust junkyard parts for isntances like your ignition module or fuel pressure regulator. You are better off buying those new...

    Compressor for the rear shocks..... less than $100.00 if you find one in good shape.

    Thanks for the tips. I was able to get everything on my list, but I decided not to get the ICM. I even got 2 FPR's. Unfourtunately, I couldn't find a garage door remote, that would have been really nice to have. I was very happy when I found a set of prestine radio knobs for the bass/treble/fade/balance functions. They charged me a flat rate of $20 for misc. parts.
