    ya. Put it back to stock and then sell it. The only issue I'm having right now is that I have a glass moonroof and do not have a paint matched metal sunroof to replace it with.

    Should there be any play with rear bearings when the axle nut isnt on?

    Have 318ti rear trailing arms that i pressed new bearings in but the hub moves side to side a decent amount to be worried.
    Not sure if i messed up pressing them in or if they need some kind of preload on them.

    Does anyone have access to an alignment machine where I could get a few measurements? I've installed rear toe and camber adjusters, but at the max toe-out adjustment I still have an obscene amount of tow-in. I tried measuring it using jack stands, string, and a laser measure, but my calculation ends up with only 0.5 deg toe-in. Based on the picture below (and Inventor), I'm guessing that I have roughly 1.76 deg of toe-in.

    I'd like to measure it as it is, then adjust to full toe-in. This should give me my full range of motion, allowing me to calculate where the adjusters should be welded.

    Hey folks, cross-posting this here since I know there are several folks who only subscribe to this thread and not the whole subforum.

    Looking for a shop recommendation. I've been recommended JMP in the Burbank/LA area but if I can get it in a shop before it really starts to rain that would be awesome.

    They will need to be able to diagnose something simple...here's my 4 month thread on it:

    https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/for...nti-lock-light

    Whatever the problem is it is physical and I want to know what it is before I throw a turbo into the equation. Will be switching to big brakes soon but am obsessed with getting the ABS working/figuring out wtf is wrong with it as I know it isn't an electrical issue.

    While they are at it I will have them install my kevlar clutch, throwout bearing, shave the flywheel a little, and I'm sure they will have a sniffer to tune my afr because I'm curious to see how far I am off before I switch to MS2. I've got everything prepped for all the diagnostics and the work as well as all the parts and spare parts necessary for testing.

    Thanks in advance for any help!!!
    or perhaps some skilled locals can help with at least the ABS issue?
