If you car has McPhereson front struts, all the "curved windsheild" supers with a horizontally stored spare tire are mac strut. If that's what you have Paul, then fixing the common SB shimmy is usually a matter of replacing the pivot at the top of the strut..
The windshield isn't curved, but the tire does sit horizontally in the trunk. What's a McPhereson Strut? What's a strut? hehe
