  • The Fun of Installing suspension in the boiling heat

    I'm a tad frustrated to say the least right now. It's hot and I'm grubby and annoyed. When you've only experienced replacing Mcpherson strut setups things get quite interesting quite quickly!

    The latest annoyance is the crap service of pepboys, and the fact that none of my local automotive stores carry generic rubber strut boots. But they all carry the expensive stock replacements including the god damn bumpstops which I am replacing. And will be buggered silly before I spend the best part of $100 for 4 rubber boots!

    ARGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!:cry::cry::cry:

    Working on your car in this heat will drive you crazy. Especially if you've been trying to get the same part off for ~30 + minutes!

    I know that feeling. I'm about to take my diff back out to put the stock one back in. It's not fun. :(

                spring compressors wouldn't fit on the rear so had to do it the 240sx way


                it shot back far




                Complete!




                It feels great!

                      Just a quick update. It feels brilliant and I can't wait for the next autox even if I am in a ridiculous class!

                              The AC saves me a LOT of money on beer and the lift save a LOt of wear and tear on my old knees..The fact that he owns every tool known to man comes in pretty handy as well
