    Little update, this happened.

    [​IMG]

    backing out of a slot at frys food. Had to call for help, jacked her up, put in 4 bolts and drove her home. It busted the cv boots, and break lines.

    Had to retorque the damn bolts, but this time with loctite. That side was easy.

    The otherside was also lose, busted a head off of number three bolt. After a failed extraction i drilled it larger and put in a 16mm grade 8+ bolt. Then changed break lines, put in stainless woven lines. All in all helluva a oops.

    yeah, its one of those beauty in the eye of the beholder stories. i THINK with the work ive put into it though, its made it worth my money, as ive done all the work myself (except the three belts, whoops).


    Umm, i think i might have put my rear left shock on the rear right, and vice versa, i wasnt aware there was a difference....
