    Missing my 95 I decided to do a facelift on the 02. A little rough but with some tweaking itll look better.

    I'd like to adjust my coilovers up for more lift,
    Can I adjust them while they are installed?

    did you have different than stock mirrors on your 95.5?

    the larger ones i hear are better, you can see more in them

    No they were stock as well, that makes sense though. The mirrors in the 02 are electric though so that's kinda nice.

    Make sure to grease your drive lines and make sure the diff breathers are functioning correctly, good looking though :cool:

    On the breather things, just make sure that cap thing has play when you spin it or wiggle it slightly by hand

    Or if you know you might be wheeling in some water again, it would be a good idea to run some breather extensions. Basically you remove those OEM breathers and install a fitting in place with a nipple end that you can run some vac line off of(don't forget the clamp), and then at end of vac line install a little small engine fuel filter or similar.
    I'm pretty sure Ive seen a thread/s on this here on the forum too
