      Trim the bracket that holds the boot in place?? Explain?

      And I checked that.. Seems to be good. No corrosion or broken pins?
      I'll test FP, check coolant temp sensor(if some place has a new one in stock I'll just buy it), cap n rotor after work today.

          Did you even bother researching this project?

            My steering rack kit came in the mail yesterday. Pretty stoked. Time to order new front hubs, too.

              Nope, they were sent directly to the machine shop because I purchased them before I left for Europe (almost a month ago). I was hoping to return to an assembled bottom end.

              Cant. Aluminum block is sleeved and he said it will cut them too thin. Hope to have some kind of resolution today.

                    When replacing struts n'things, where do you guys go to get new nuts for the tie rods and control arms? I destroy them when freeing the struts.
