Custom assembled endlinks became obnoxiously loud. Clicking on every low speed bump. So for now the stock end links went back on. Some short cobalt endlinks will replace them next spring.

Front end has been sloppy as sh1t lately. Hopefully this box of love will help. Have cam bolts for struts, 2 cobalt lower control arm ball joint bushings to adapt, and 3 solid rubber cobalt bushings to make two replacement motor mounts and a bonus 4th torque mount.

More to come shortly.

Finished the reducers and got the Cobalt bushings (spherical) installed in the stock arms. Was able to machine a small flange in the reducer as a stop so it wouldnt push out further while pushing the bushing in.

Cam bolts and alignment coming to wrap it up this weekend. Gotta get it all done while the weather is still decent.

Nice work so far. Definitely interest in doing this as I'm at 65k and it's time to shape up

Because people use there cell phone and most times hold them in the upright position like they do when they talk on the phone. They forget most real cameras take pictures with the long aspect horizontally. So they make postings in a thread right from their phone and the picture ends up wrong.

The phone stores the pictures in the "right" horizontal positions, so when a picture is taken "vertically", it shows up sideways on web sites like this.

Annoying isn't it. I just refuse to keep twisting my head to look at pictures like that when they could rotate them on their phone either before or after taking them.

Did my cam bolt on the driver side, took out ~0.5* to even it out with the passenger side and fixed the toe.

Nice to have a car that handles well again without grabbing every crack and rut.

Test fit one of my cracked wheels from the redline. 17x7.5 et40. Satisfied with the fit, should help me order wheels in the spring.
