but i do not need all the extra rigidness with the crap roads of PA

got the bushing in the aluminum control arms, but they are going to wait to go in until i get my ball joint puller from snapon.

then while i have everything apart on the front i'll also install the 4 pot calipers




mounted the 225/55/16 on the goldies that i got from Sean 2 years ago and installed on the car. i need to install a small spacer on the rears because they rub just a tad.

but i do like the way they fill the wheel wells.




then i dunno why i waited so long to purchase jdm seats, OMG these things are so comfy.

i read bilstein are good over all, even for dding

their spring rates are pretty good 405 and 255.


with the new poly bushings isn't going to help with the ride either but i still installed them.

i'm sure it's different on different chassies..or how ever the hell you spell that. i've only ridden on them in an Abarth. over shiit roads..you have to hold your butthole closed or you'll poop all over the seats. on good roads..they ride like glass.

the only issue is length of the sleeve for the front position bushing, is 61mm.

some models use a bushing with a sleeve length of 55mm.

that is the issue i had, you will need to measure it out.

i got the prothane bushings and they had the wider ones, i need to order the whiteline bushings

they are the one piece bushings. not the two piece.

if i can get them out without destroying them (aka no getting annoyed), i'll let you know.

i still have the turbo inlet if interested

catch up time, been way to busy with it being nice outside to play on the computer.

aluminum control arm install after i got the correct front bushing installed, with new ball joints and kartboy end links.







Also decided to install the subaru 4 pots and kick out those tiny single piston brake calipers.




a big woops on my part, don't forget to check to make sure your brake lines are not rubbing on anything or you can end up with this:
