    Stan, I actually told Megan about the Auto X day and she was excited about it. We may be able to come and at least watch for awhile.

    Gotcha. It's also nice to loose ~20lbs off the front end of the car too!

    Cool! Let me know if you can, I'll PM you my number so you can find me. Non-competitors can come along for a ride too (I believe, anyway)!

    Had a good night. Got the car up in the air, removed the lateral links, pressed the bushings out of the old and into the new. And it only took me about two hours from start till content.

    The lesson from this story kids, is to buy new suspension bolts. 100% glad I did when I originally put the lateral links in.

    So tonight I'll crawl back under the car and get everything put back together, pull the rear brakes and hopefully get a few wheel studs swapped.

    Good call on the new lateral link bolts.

    Make sure ya have a sledge hammer or something with some mass for the wheel studs. Claw hammers just don't pack enough mass to get the studs safely dislodged in my limited experience.

    Making progress!

    Thanks! I have a 3lb mini sledge that I use when I'm angry at parts. Think that will do the trick? Or should I be looking for more brute force?

    I'd say that'd be more than sufficient. Following a night shift a while back, I was trying to replace a wheel stud. I smacked the sucker for a good 15 whacks with a claw hammer before realizing I would wake my whole neighborhood up. Disgusted, on my way upstairs, I found about a 4lb sledge sitting in the tray... staring me down. I picked it up... just a light little tap and the stud went flying. Physics 101

    So I had some extreme procrastination due to:

    - Fiance wanted to go out Friday
    - Went to Philly for a show Saturday and hung out with some friends til the wee hours of the morning, which led to...
    - Doing absolutely nothing on Sunday

    So I got everything put back together and torqued down, but I didn't get to touch the wheel studs. I took off Friday, so I'll get it tackled on the neighbors lift then. Dropping off the permit application for the new garage as well.

    Extreme lack in updating on my part, but then again, I have also been very unproductive the past couple of weeks. The weather has sucked, I'm tired of working in the gravel driveway and getting eaten alive by mosquito's, and trying to get some work done around the house has sucked. So, to try and get rid of almost all of those issues (house work will never end), I've been dedicating what little free time I've had to getting the ball rolling on the garage.

    Already went through round 1 of permit application. Had to do some redesign, but I'll hopefully re-apply with this:



    Had to downsize from 20'x30' to 18'x24'. With the space lost, I'll be putting in a 2 post lift so I can at least store 2 cars in the garage. the concrete pad will be extended out so I can work on concrete if I'm lazy, don't shimmy cars in the driveway, and want to pull something up and work on it.

    The only progress I've actually made is running up to PMP Autoparts and grabbing 4 sedan hubs. This will accomplish two things:

    1. make it easier to swap wheel studs.
    2. moar camber, since my coils were meant for a sedan.

    Not 100% sure when I'll get them in, but I'll see how motivated I get this week....

    Are you going to have a tire mounting machine in your garage?

    Future plans, yes. Now that the car is 95% complete, I'll have some "extra" funds to make some tool purchases. I also figure I'll recoup the money in a few years of mounting/balancing (if the balancer fits) my own stuff, plus doing some for friends on the side.

    Suprisingly, this stuff isn't toooo crazy expensive. What I want:

    Lift: Atlas 9KBP

    Nice thing is, I can probably pay for the lift with the money I'll save in the material for extending the driveway and in making the garage smaller.

    Tire & balancer combo, If I can make both fit: COMBO - TC221 + WB11

    EDIT: Making the garage smaller saved me $1200.
