Me and my brother and Dad are good at car stuff. My other brother is the muscle. Me and my sister are the computer nerds. Mom cooks....

        • Looks freaking awesome man, I have a question about new lower ball joints and ur tie rod ends, do you have any recommendations as to what to buy? did you go OEM? or from parts store? I'm weary of getting this stuff from autozone or something because I don't know if they'll last. Just wondering your thoughts.
          Again, seriously awesome work though, car looks great

            Im a believer in, you get what you pay for, So it OEM all the way, if its
            lasted this long, it should last me another 15+ years


            I got my tires mounted today, now I just need my ball joints to show up

                • I swapped out my front springs today, and I have to tell you, sitting in my driveway under those filthy ass fenders fighting to break loose seized bolts, and more fighting to get my forks to line up with the control arms......I envy your build even more.

                    • So I got the battery in it and the brakes bleed last night, alos got the rear tires on.













                      along with good news, there is always bad. As I was cleaning up my SPC camber kit. I came to find out one is completly fucked. so Ive got my fingers crossed that I dont end up having any caster issues and have to buy a new SPC kit this thing looks horrible





                      Since im still waiting on balljoints, I decided to get started on this thing tonight


                      stay tuned for updates

                              Good luck man




                              So last night the ASR subframe brace went on.

















                              everything went great until I tried to bolt back up the ST sway bar and thats where the problem arrised. both the bar and the brace want to occupy the same space. you would think ASR might have taken into account that some people might actually have an aftermarket swaybar already installed on there car durring the developement of this subframe brace, but I guess not.
                              even with the stock bar up. clearence is very tight, so much that im afraid under hard cornering that might be contact between the two.

                              So now im undecided on what to do. had I know this in the first place I would of just ordered the kit with the ITR bar, but now Im just going to have to source one some where else.


                              Also got this yesterday.

                              Thanks Kev

                              • So I decided to to put the ST bar back on and pull the ASR bar off until I decide to upgrade to a bigger bar for the rear. so I did that the other day. I also recieved my ball joints on friday and of course they are the wrong ones so I got a hold of the guys at weksos on sat and they are supposed to look into it this morning, so now im back in the waiting game.

                                To fill some time till then I started mounting this thing for those days I attend meets and fell like being a little flashy
