    $300 isn't terrible for a pair. I probably won't bother with the ECGS bushing, unless you know of someone with a removal tool. I don't want to pay for that.

    There is a thread where someone passes around a tool. I dont know where it is, but you are better at searching than I am.

    EDIT: a Nova guy might have one too.. @TacoCat or @chiefcrunchy

    I'm free at least one day a weekend, so a saturday would probably work! We could tentatively shoot for the 27th?

    No it's not with the take off. It's pretty smooth I just think one of the wheels keeps throwing weights. I've already taken it in twice for same issue. I still want to check my angles (need to learn how and what's acceptable first). Maybe my drive shaft too with your after your input. I'm fairly good with figuring this stuff out from my racing days. Lifts are a new world to me.

    Any of you Lair dwellers watch Gold Rush on Discovery? I check in every now and then only to see Tod Hoffen figure out a new way to fail. :anonymous:

    I love the show! I haven't watched much of the new season. Maybe I'll watch some tonight.

    I've always had good luck with NAPA with my racing days. Better than the cheaper ones. I'll be curious to hear your email response.

    I think I may rebuild my own after all. It will be a good learning experience, be a good bit cheaper and they'll be OEM. I watched a different video and looks loads easier than fully disassembling them like the other video I posted earlier.

    They all seem to do some stupid stuff or bad luck, but somehow make it work

    27th sounds good! We will also set things up with @Redmann to know if the seller will ship through Canada or right to him too. He has a month from now, but as we said it can also be moved. I don't want to make him miss the ride!

    That's a good video, "mind out of gutter" lol. It def seems a lot more simpler that way. Getting a CV out for me sucks regardless as I'm 100% all hand tools and no real garage lol. So I struggle through every project that way and they always take longer lol.

    Yeah, same here. At least I have a workbench in my basement with a small vise on it so I can do most the work inside. I'm gonna watch more videos and see if this is something I want to tackle.
