Update.
  • Clutch master cylinder replaced (OEM) and system bled - crazy how much better it feels when shit works the way it's supposed to
  • John's new-fangled 04 mount on order along with hardcore bar (went with bronze).
  • Koni's, Pedders, swap kit and Powergrid endlinks all sitting in the garage ready to go on. Purchased exhaust pipe cutter, electric impact wrench, heat gun and lube to help things go easier
  • Front H/E still f'd up.
  • SC coupler still not on
  • Still on the lookout for LSD deal
.

SCCA instructor who runs Koni's is going to help me with my install, hopefully this week. The goal is to have the suspension parts in and H/E fixed (or removed entirely) for Aug 21st event.

The thought is pure ambiguous

Doesn't feel like progress yet since all the good new stuff is still sitting in the garage and not on my car but I'm shaking with anticipation (at least I hope it's anticipation and not Parkinson's or something). Thanks for the well wishes sir

And...

Begin. OMW to grab a spring compressor from Autozone and start the suspension install, hopefully with a helping hand from my AutoX instructor who runs konis on his car (focus DSP).

Might need to stop and buy beer too just in case we need to do some thinkin

it typically takes me 4-5 beers to even start thinking, good luck!

Forum favorites: When darkmanX beat me in a roll, the cover page red Redline is right-hand drive, the GMPONE crew and all the other members I met, the few twincharged RL's out there, and of course my original purchases from Ron9919 which gave me my first mod bug.

Thanks Shroogis for offering to help with any questions. Thanks as always to Mr. Powell for his vast knowledge and generosity and to Hawlyns for the well wishes...but we got-r-dun all in one shot tonight. Gotta throw a shout-out to Big Brother for selling his Konis to me off his dearly departed RL.

Just over 4 hours from 1st jack stand under the car til completion. Things go WAAAAYYY faster with someone else helping. Electric impact was a lifesaver! No heat gun needed for the rears, just some real good lube

Dropping at the shop for the alignment tomorrow (same guy that helped me tonight)...Ride is way smoother and steering response seems to be much quicker as well...Forgive the crappy cell phone pics in the dark.
