Welcome to the Forum. It would help if you would tell us where you are located at? As for smoothing out your ride, I put a reverse shackel kit on my 87. You get about a 2" lift but a lot smoother ride. I added a 100 hp motor with Header and weber carb and fast flow exhaust. A compression check might be a good place to start if the coolant isn't dripping to the floor? Just my .02 cents worth.

I got it and all my add on's from Samurai Salvage in Marshaltown, IA. Check their Wed Site.
Samurai Salvage.Com Then give Rod a call and ask about your leak.

Losing water/antifreeze:
One place to look that most people miss is the underside of the intake manifold. The aluminum starts to deteriorate and pin holes form on the underside, usually towards the rear.
