G_Wag questions

A few questions, as briefly as possible:

I have a black '90 G-Wag in good shape @ 98k miles. I've replaced the carb., gas tank skid plate, engine mounts, and more. She's a great car and I love her dearly.

At this point, I'm looking to do the following, any commentary/thoughts on all/any of these issues would be greatly appreciated:

1) Fix the [censored]-sag she's got going on. What's the best way? New leaf/leaves? Lift kit? What's the approx. cost?
2) Running lights have become attached to the brake pedal (weird eh?) so that whenever I hit the brakes, the interior lights click and dim slightly and the running lights come on. My solution - so far - is to just drive w/ running lights on all the time (doesn't really hurt). Any experience with this?
3) When I hit the gas, there's a distinct "ticking" - a cylinder missing? Help.

I'm sure there's more but that's what I've got now. Any help is appreciated and I hope to return the favor at some point.

Thanks,
Evan Lewis

Re: G_Wag questions

The ticking noise culd be either an exhaust leak or a lifter noise. One thing I have noticed is the AMC 360 seems to develope uperr end problems long before the bottom end ever wears out. Check exuast manifold bolts first, then check the air injection manifolds. They tend to rust through in places you cant see very well. The air injection manifolds will have a check valve on the end that tends to go bad also, allowing some "noise" to go back through the rubber hose. If you don't find an exhaust leak and you think it could be valve train noise, I've seen some good results with Lucas Oil Stabilizer. It's an additive that is all petroleum based (no teflon or other garbage) and seems to wortk pretty well. Check out ifsja.org go to the message forum, they have some real knowlegeable electrical guys there.
