Decided I don't want to deal with that on the ground so I'm getting the car back together enough to get it towed over to my buddy's shop so I can tackle that on a lift.
    Just swapped rear subs on the hoopty and ran into this same issue.... super dreading pulling the exhaust apart to collapse the d/s as well. You're lucky you have lift access!

    Glad to see the car coming together.

      Yeah now that this annoying stuff will be done, I'm looking forward to working on the small things to make this a nice driver again. It's been super neglected and needs some TLC

              Glad to see it back on the road! Non running projects suck.

              Keep the E30 activities and photos coming!

              How'd the alignment end up?

                Turns out things are a lot easier on a lift lol. The driveshaft didn't end up having to be collapsed, the diff just had to be maneuvered around to get things to line up. Apparently man-handling it on the ground by myself was what was making it nearly impossible. But that's over now.

                Now my focus is to just drive it when the weather is decent. I still have the headgasket issue to tackle. Trying to figure out the best course of action for that because there are a bunch of things I want to do while that happens. I really want to get out to some track days next season, that's what's been on my mind for the past few weeks. Get some decent tires for the stock weaves, refresh the brakes, maybe go through and refresh my old ground controls and just send it.
