Put a new (reman) alternator in and rear sway bar bushings/links. Old alt seemed fine at 139K (it's on eBay right now if any is interested) but I figured at 20 years old maybe it would be smart as a preventative. Didn't notice much change with the sway bar stuff, old links didn't look bad, but the fronts are starting to squeak. Next up: figure out why the blower motor quit blowing...hopefully not related to the new alt. Also yanked out the washer fluid heater and shortened the coolant line, I suspect a little coolant was leaking into the washer fluid and it sounds like a good preventative even if not.
