So, i went to replace a wheel stud and put new rotors and pads on. well i need to press the hub out of the knuckle to do this, i didn't know that. so now i am going t buy a shop press and do it all myself. after i decided this i figure ok ill do the other side so i jst have to press out the one and put it back together. when i lifted up the the other side i felt a little play in the wheel so i need a wheel bearing on the other side and while i had these off i noticed my inner tie rod boots were destroyed and i have a tiny leak coming from the top of the rack, i think its just an o-ring. so ill be fixing all of this and possibly some new sway bar bushings, end links, and prothane lower control arm ball joint bushings. so a easy litle project turned into this big thing. oh well at least everything up front will be brand new and the handling will be that much better. after all this is done ill be saving up for some lowering springs. kinda happy this all happened.

thank you next is new boots for the inner tie rods and new o-rings for the rack. then wheel bearings and sway bar end links. then i can install my stoptech slotted rotors and pads. then the front end will be done and i can move on to the rear end and get to cleaning and re-rubberizing the rear. i also think i might be picking up G's ENKEI 16" rims and im gonna paint them bronze, i think it might make the car pop a little bit and i'd really like that.

I should stop looking at other people's build threads because I just see more crap I want to get done to my car. all in good time I guess!

Many dollars to throw into my car's budget for the time being.

todays journey will involve the pressing in of new bearing and seals, the install of brand new end links and possibly finishing up the passengers side completely. one small step at a time, but the car is really starting to come along. i cant wait to feel the difference. also i found the power steering leak and fixed it. pictures to come at the end of the day possibly.

I got lots to do to mine but it will have to wait till I get back from Colorado!

Your car should be pretty nice, it's rewarding to knock out some serious work like that.

what pads did you get? I always felt the stock brakes were highly inadequate for these cars, but what you did should improve things quite a bit.

Phil, thanks man i have been putting a lot of work into her. im starting to really understand how to self tune, next step will be turning on the meth and dialing that in, still waiting to put it on the dyno though. Phil, what have you been doing with yourself? do you need a vacation? come hang out with me in tahoe for a few days.. we wont even touch a wrench.


i got stoptech slotted sport rotors and stoptech performance pads. it stops the car so much better. i went driving on some mountain passes yesterday and it was nice, high speeds, lots of turns. i even went through a few spots fast then i ever have before, a lot has to do with all new everything up front, but the brakes really made the difference. i barley had to touch them and i was coming to such a quick stop. i also removed the ABS though so i have more pedal feel in the brakes.

how do you like the bilstein suspension? Did you do anything for the positive camber? I had to slot the strut bolts a little to get some negative camber out of them. I love the ride of mine with the swift lowering springs.

i freaking love it. i didn't do anything to them, mine where from a evo mr and were stock. when i installed the knuckles on the strut i ran the bolts through and pushed the top in as far as i could and tightened it. im waiting to get an alignment and i think im going to get camber bolts for it if i really need to.

i turned the car on this morning and i noticed a little exhaust leak from the o2 housing to the down pipe, so i replaced the gasket and figured while i have the down pipe disconnected i might as well heat wrap it, to help keep heat off the oil pan and transfer case.
