The Wagon Sticky

While there aren't too many differences between a long roof and a sedan there are a few repairs and part issues specific to them. In order to facilitate finding and adding good threads about them to the Topic Finder please feel free to post links to specific threads here.

It's SHO time!

I'll have to do that someday. I pumped a bunch of grease into the boots to help them survive a bit longer. But, who knows how much damage has already been done by 144K miles.
