I hate Maryland, but gotta deal with it for now, and I need to get a safety inspection done on my 98 since I just got the car a few weeks ago. Does anyone know if hood pins will fail? PO put them on and there's not OEM latch mechanism at all. All the safety checklist indicates is "Hood/Catches". I just did the brakes and suspension over the weekend, and the only thing I 'think' I need to do to pass is the wheel bearings. I think they're grinding, thought it was the brakes, which were also seized and grinding. Bearings/seals and new diff cover will be here Monday from AM.
