        I will be using the area where the factory box sat and also going to fabticate a channel for air to hit the filter when the car is in motion.

          Just a few updates since the site was down. I purchased everything on my suspension parts list except for the rear strut bar I want. Wanted Function and Form Two.5 coilovers with specific spring rates but ended up ordering Tein Super Street dampers instead. Changed my exhaust from the Tanabe Medalion Touring to the HKS Hi Power. Also changed my wheels from 15" Mugen MR5s to 16" SSR Formula Mesh. The new shell I bought still isnt on the road but will be very soon. I will be posting pics in a few minutes. Will take a bit since I am on my phone.

                  I will post pics of everything soon. I am moving into a new house and have to move the shell over before I can start working on it.

                    So, everything got moved over to the new house and work started. Got the front end tore apart and ready for the new parts. Swapping a lot of parts around I forgot that the front suspension on the track car was from an EF ( bolted on so I could move it ) so I need to source two front forks. Also the bushings on the front lower control arms were giving me hell so that kinda put a halt on the front. Time to move on to the back end. Being that the car spent time in Virginia, a lot of the suspension rusted together. I have to completely redo the rear suspension so that will take some extra time as well. For now, here are a few pics:

                    Finished up the front control arms with new ball joints and Energy Suspension bushings:



                    Not wanting to leave the daily out of the game, it got a new front lip:



                    Here is a quick shot of the front suspension pieces bolted in and waiting for the rest of the pieces:



                    Random shot of all my toys:



                    Here is a shot of the rear prior to disassembly:



                    All of this is rusted together and needs to be replaced:



                    A shot of the ASR subframe brace and sway bar mocked up:



                    My coilovers are bolted up in the rear and waiting on the rest of the parts:



                    As it sits for now until tomorrow when I will do some more:

                        • @acura_madness I will be posting pics of the ball joints soon. Gotta buy a hacksaw and take out my remaining bushings the old fashion way.

                          @derek21 thanks man. Its been a long time coming. Hopefully it will be on the road within a month. I keep running into small kinks that need to be worked out.

                            Not much to see, looks just like it does in the box but in the knuckle instead, lol. I changed too much stuff on my car at once to give any kind of review on the ball joints by themselves.

                            • Hopefully all of my parts will be that clean. Just gotta get enough Brake Kleen to do it.

                              I post pics frequently on Instagram if anyone wants to follow my progress on there as well - @db2_medic

                              • So the ball joints went in. Not smoothly but they are in. The best way I found to get them in was to dremel the inside sleeve on the spindle just enough to a "polished" finish and then use a small ball peen or dead blow hammer to get them in. As for the snap ring, two pair of vice grips and muscle.
