Re: Stupid Exhaust Questions

Was just going to post, find some stock G8 mufflers (NOT GXP). If you do a YT search you can find guys with catted LTs and G8 mufflers and IMO it doesn't seem that loud. I can sympathize with the trying to keep it sane for the neighbor's sake.

Re: Control Arm Torque

Well FWIW a 5 ton long reach puller was the ticket. Used the 2 arm configuration, applied pressure, some PB and more whacks on the knuckle, popped out. Finally. Next up alignment.

Re: Control Arm Torque

Anyone have any suggestions for a stubborn ball joint end? 3 out of the 4 came out with only a few taps of the hammer. This 4th one is going to drive me insane. I have tried heat, PB Blaster applied over several days, threading on a nut and trying to just flat out spin the stud, applying some pressu...

Re: Headlight dust covers

Unless something changed recently, they are as I bought them from my local dealer several months back.

Re: This doesn’t look right (after new struts)

This is probably a dumb question but can you please explain what that means? Is this problem related to the order of attaching all the pieces?

Re: Control Arm Torque

Fair enough, can't really complain I mean the parts came off reasonably easy which was already a nice bonus. I'll just get my extension and u-joints working overtime and make it happen. With the wheel liner and under pan removed, the front LCA bolt is easy to get from the engine bay, surprisingly en...

Control Arm Torque

I think I got the correct control arm torque values (30 + 60* at the ball joint end, 30 + 120* at the bushing end), but from what I gather, the bushing side is to be torqued with the wheels on the ground. Not that big a deal because 30ft-lbs is not much. However the additional turns, I mean... are t...

Re: Big Single TURBO build ...LOADING

The build is nice but dammit if the console for 40 bucks is even more impressive :lol: It seems you're fairly industrious, so a few welds later and you could resuse your stock 9C1 e-brake cable. I think a few here have done it (I believe there are pics posted by user "PPV") Nice work bench as well! -J
