    Swapped out a CV axle with busted boots. Rotated the 33s cross ways (PITA). And swapped out the leaf spring hanger bolts to OEM from the metric stainless I stuck in there years ago. Not too surprisingly, some slop is now gone when transitioning from hammering on it to engine braking. Noticed all the tires have the beginning of some dry rot after only 8 years. Those KM2s just won’t wear down at all.

    Finally got around to replacing my shifter seat bushings, needless to say it was much needed. This is what was left of the old bushing. 20180607_184551.jpgNylon bushing was shot too
    1528412159677717392650.jpg
    Also does anyone have a part number for this piece?20180607_184600.jpg
    It's the boot that keeps foreign objects from getting in the trans.
    20180607_184639.jpg

    All in all this cost $28 and should be well worth it. Part numbers 33505-35020 and 33548-31010. It should be a pretty standard part as i believe they use it on many different vehicles. Currently in the middle of front brake pads rotors and a passenger side caliper and waiting on more parts to come in so I can finish. But just sitting in it and running through gears it feels great. Definently recommend doing this if your manual trans feels really sloppy when shifting or if you have a lot of left and right play when in gear. Took about an hour mostly because I had to pick out so many little bushing chunks.

    :) I didn't think changing out all of my A/C components was all that bad a job!! I had more trouble with the black plastic clamshell deal on the line going into the firewall. I messed with that thing for over an hour. Didn't want to break it, and didn't have the proper tool. "Be cool"!!!

    Should be able to run it without it being bolted in place.

    I replaced all mine with Marlin bushings and it was like night and day. They’re still tight about 6 years later. Can’t say that about everything else getting abused.

    Send it back and get your money back. I went through this same shit with a Honda Accord. The regulator looked close, but one bolt was not even close and when I bolted the window up it it revealed that even that was not close. I went and bought a used OEM one from a junk yard
