      Thanks man. Rides pretty nice too, better than before. And she's cleaned up nicely too.


      You have to take off the sway bar, control arm and pretty much everything else up front. No new shocks until I get a set of billies.

          Yea I thought so, I sure don't like separating ball joints, I always break something lol. That is the only thing keeping me from lowering my 21

              Thank you sir. Believe it or not, I'm actually pretty anal about my cars. Nohomo.

                Bring it out this way and I'll hook you up. It would have to be on a weekend though. Wanna trade a chop for a driver's side rear trailing arm? I need one until I piece together the 323i ass end swap, which is slowly killing me.

                  OK enough e21 talk. Who's doing what to their E30's? Is there an E21 dedicated message board? Just curious.

                  We had some guy bring his 83 318i into our shop today, just ragged as fuck... Car was like falling apart and he didn't want to do anything to bring it back to square one.. His excuse? "It's a sleeper."

                    There is but nothing really localized. Just one club's forum and it's dead as nails.

                    I don't know why people have gotten so lazy. There's always some "hipster" excuse for doing some raggedy shit these days.

                        Thinking about making a Big Al's Bowling meet sometime this month... What do you PDX/Vancouver guys think?

                          I'd be down for that. How's Rick doing since the last Big Al's meet? Lol.

                            So back to the spring cutting business..

                            So 12izms, I'm all about doing things on the cheap and controversial, and the only thing that bothers me about the MM pub. is the part where they heat up the last coil red hot to bend it inward so that it's flat. I've heated spring steel until it's red hot with an torch. It lost it's spring and turned to glass. Kwis?

                              I am totally down, although unfortunately I don't have any of the hard parts left. I do have a set of front strut housings? And some random interior bits? Oh and a complete front subframe and steering rack. Any of this interest you lol

                                That part is then meant to be the spring seat or the dead coil. So your spring rate would be as if that section didn't exist.
