Hey guys, two days ago I got my car back from kings performance in orlando, florida. They specialize in high performance imports. My total bill came out to 1500 which included custom intercooler piping, custom intake, timing belt install, fmic install, fuel pump install, exhaust install with custom hangers, aftermarket steering wheel install, ac compressor and dryer install and a couple other misc things.... after getting the car back more problems began to show...I think my wheel bearings are shot (vibration at 45+mph), steering wheel has to be turned almost halfway to the left to drive straight (possibly steering wheel install was done wrong or alignment is way off) what do you guys think? My ac is still broken after spending 300 dollars so far to try and get it fixed (I was told my expansion valve is broken). Suspension is rattling and knocking pretty bad as well...can anyone help shed some light on a good place to buy wheel bearings and can any place install them? Also my automatic seatbelts are acting up and my passenger rear door doesn't unlock when the other 3 doors do Any possible answers to that?

good job, you threw 1500 at performance work for a 20 year old car and thought it would roll out of the shop magically in tip top shape...

That's not actually what I expected. I was giving everyone little update on my car before getting into the new problems I found. And I kind of wanted advice on the questions I asked. That was all sir.

Ah, when I hear other vr4 problems I smile, as I realize that I'm not alone in my struggle to fight the good fight and get the galant back to tip top shape! I think you should put your car on jacks, pull front tires off, and go through suspension parts, bearings, etc... until everything looks as if it is in good shape. Repeat for the back as well. Get it aligned, ask their opinion. That's where I would start.

To check to see if the steering wheel is on straight, turn the wheel to lock, turn other way to lock counting the turns and then turn back to exactly half way. See if the wheels are straight ahead.

Adjust as nessissary. If it still pulls, take it to an alignment shop. But make sure all the wheel bearings, tie rods (inner and outers), ball joints, struts, tires are in perfect working order or you are wasting your money.

Well, I wouldn't call it a fight yet with the car. I have only had the car for a couple months and almost the whole two months I never drove it. I forsee an expensive war with the car however..I still love the car and will not give up. Thanks for the advice! If I cannot get the car to Garfield I will turn to some local mitsu gurus...

Feel free to hit me up. I'm always doing side work on DSM's and am just south of Orlando. I'm going through the process of identifying all the parts that need replacing while I'm tearing things apart for paint work. There's a few local guys that are really sharp with VR-4's as well.
