    Hello from Lincoln, Nebraska. I just got my 23 T last night. Have a few issues I need help with.
    It is Total Performance car. The driver side spring pivot broke in shipment and Speedway Motors here in Lincoln are no help. Any suggestions on obtaining parts would be greatly appreciated.

    I went to Speedway here in Lincoln NE. The pivots they have are not for a Total Performance front end. Their pivot shaft are shorter and diameter is smaller. They suggested I change out the whole front end. yikes

    Welcome from the sunny Caribbean.

    If I recall correctly, it's been quite some time since Speedway bought out TP, so all that old TP inventory is probably long gone.

    Looks like you'll have to go into MacGyver mode if you need to keep the cost to reasonable range.

    Give me some specs on what you need for a pivot and we can make it up for you.

    Ok I found a machine shop here in Lincoln NE that did a great job. The T is back up and running. Thank you for all the responses. The only alternative that Speedway gave me was to change out the entire front end from a Total Performance to their Speedway.

    Hope Spirit stays around. Their stuff is far superior to anything Speedway carries.
