Over the last 2 months I took out the old rear end and put in a 4 bolt. I eliminated the 4ws and replaced the ball joints and sway bar endlinks. Call it a budget rebuild I guess. I also filled the subframe mounts with some window sealant that I got from Home Depot. I will update how the car rides when I get it back on the road (few weeks from now). I put a lot of time into this with all the painting and what not. I used POR-15 on most everything except the rear end pumpkin and cover. POR-15 traps heat so thats why I didn't use it on those pieces. The removal of the rear end was also the messiest thing I have ever done!

Thanks
Clint Cooper

What are the advantages/disadvantages of mounting the sway bar to the subframe while its off the car vs. on the car? For some reason, I was under the impression that the sway bar was supposed to be mounted while the subframe is on the car.

If you already have the subframe off the car, it's a 5 min. job to swap the swaybars; otherwise if you're like me it may take an hour or two. It's basically just much easier, but it's not worth dropping the subframe just to do it that way. A lot of people like to do it all at once is all.

Scott's analness is rubbing off on other members. Maybe it's because they live so close to each other

Nice work. Agree on that's how things should be done when they're apart.

Or we both know how to build cars correctly.
