      Yeah I imagine so haha. I'll be sure to post pics of my progress, (however slow it is) in here. This will be my first time tearing down an engine after all.

      Knocked out the thermostat yesterday, that was a pita and I still have no heat. Guessing its my heater blower assembly now

      New bushings and new hardware

      Tomorrow I'll be tackling the brake pads and modifying the rear sway bar to make it stiffer

      Good job on the LCA bushings. Did you press them out/in at home or take the control arms someplace to have them do it?
      Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or further steps will be taken

      I picked up a cheap press at harbor freight and did it myself. Took a while but worth it!

      I run in DS, actually had the first autoX of the season yesterday. I didn't do too bad, even though I have to run up against FRS/BRZs now. I'll be modifying my rear sway bar and making some adjustments to my alignment before the next event.

      Got me some new alignment tools. With this kit I picked up you can do Camber, toe and caster! Pretty excited!

      I googled for Tenhulzen Automotive and found their site faster than it took to write this.

      Price is reasonable. Let us know how it works!

      Just got done using it! It is surprisingly very easy! Took almost no time at all, only thing thats a pain is centering the steering wheel. But once thats done its a breeze! I'll never pay for an alignment again!
