I know my asking price is fair. Which is probably why I'm on the verge of pulling it from the market. I took some pictures today though so I'll have some more info for this thread.

ok so here's the photos i took of the car.

one thing to note; something i did not talk about in the ad:
The ABS computer is currently unhooked. The ABS system DOES work just fine, but when i bought new axles right before we moved, the passenger side showed up and was missing the ABS ring, i didnt realize this until I had installed the axle, attempted to back the car out of the garage and had that ABS system start going to work the second i hit the brakes. I pulled the car back in, jacked it back up and started checking the sensors thinking i had somehow harmed one, immediately found the reluctor ring to be missing. I kept the stock axle with the intention to remove the ring and put it on the new axle, but i was out of time before the move so i had to disable the ABS. The ABS will be working before someone buys this car, I just have to get a break between the other project cars im working on to do it. I just wanted to point that out before someone lost their shit over the ABS computer being unplugged.









Interior is filthy


Blemishes:
passenger side rear quarter panel ding, about the size of a quarter dollar


passenger side rear quarter clear coat


driverside rear door ding also about the size of a quarter


driverside front fender clear coat

I'm confused. None of my ABS rings are on the axles. The fronts are inside the knuckles/hubs, and the rears are pressed onto the spindles.

That is correct Mark. No ABS rings on the axles on this car. Must be something else.

Ok, I knew I wasnt insane. I cut myself some slack because I own and maintain seven mitsubishi's and hardly any two are the same.

When I put new axles in, i backed out of the garage and the ABS started working it's butt off the second i tried to stop my roll. I pulled back into the garage and inspected the car, at the time I'm not sure why it didnt occur to me that the ABS ring is on the wheel hub but the drivers side had an ABS ring, passenger did not. Obviously these axles are used in a number of vehicles, according to Rock Auto:

EAGLE 2000 GTX (1991 - 1992)
EAGLE SUMMIT (1992 - 1996)
EAGLE TALON (1990 - 1998)
MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE (1990 - 1999)
MITSUBISHI EXPO (1992 - 1995)
MITSUBISHI EXPO LRV 1993
MITSUBISHI GALANT (1990 - 1992)
PLYMOUTH COLT (1993 - 1994)
PLYMOUTH COLT VISTA 1992
PLYMOUTH LASER (1992 - 1994)

All of these vehicles use the same driverside axle, so if any one of them calls for an ABS ring, I likely ended up with that model's axle.

That being said, it doesnt explain why the ABS was acting up. I'll be looking into that the first chance I get.

Pics for proof;




And just because I got such a kick out of this service record from the original owner;

Yeah, I got some of those axles with the rings for 503 when I owned it.

Did it cause any problems with your ABS Mark? I doubt it could have any impacts whatsoever but i thought I would ask because...

When i changed the axles i put the old axles into the new boxes and stuck them with the rest of the moving stuff, so i haven't laid eyes on them since i yanked them from the car. I just dug them out and double checked (for the sake of my sanity) and there's no rings on either of those axles, because they're likely original (no service record to indicate otherwise) so as far as I know the only variable in my axle change was either me inadvertently damaging a sensor, or that ring somehow creating an issue.

Quoting Alpha Male:

Did it cause any problems with your ABS Mark?




Nope. Although I was worried it might have clearance issues, that wasn't a problem either. And only one axle came with the ring, though I don't remember which side. I think driver's side.

There is probably only one side that has commonality with some later models using the newer sensing/rotor design.

I would look at the adjustment and cleanliness of the sensor. dirty/metal contaminated or out of adjustment sensors cause erratic behavior.

I've damaged an abs sensor in the past by stressing the wire too much when installing an axle. You could easily have done the same here.
Good luck.

I am the lucky fella who picked it up. I too am in Mesa, AZ.

I'll try and keep updates on here as things progress so there is some documentation on what goes on with it. School keeps me pretty busy so it might go slow for the next few months.


Thanks again, Josh
