Default Re: yamahaSHO's street build! *PRETT IN PINK!!!

I started installing the coilovers and roll-center/bumpsteer correction kit and realized I couldn't get the conical bushing off the old ball joint without damage. I ordered them from the dealership and received them yesterday. I've only got one corner done, but will finish the rest of the install tonight.

Lots of anti-seize is my friend! I'm glad this car doesn't see winters. I'm still irritated by running over water used to cut concrete roads last summer... You can still see that powdered concrete under my car and on the exhaust. Thankfully, it wipes right off.

Default Re: yamahaSHO's street build! *PRETTY IN PINK!!!

Today I was lucky enough to experience the dreaded stripped caliper. I was hoping it wouldn't happen on a garaged car, never driven in winter with 29k miles, but when I went to break the bolts loose on the final front coilover/roll-center/bumpsteer correction kit today, it happened. I sprayed Liquid Wrench and let it sit for a couple days, and then hit it again about 20 minutes before trying to losen the bolt.

Now I'm looking for a good machine shop to drill, tap and insert a helicoil or Time-Sert. I'm an anal bastard, so I'm a bit worried considering I haven't had to use a machine shop since leaving Denver. F00k mi.

Still waiting on my Heli-Coils to come in, but got some other new 'toys' in the mail that I'll install in the next few days.

Looking good. How do you like the KW V1s with the whiteline RCAs?
I have a similar setup that I just had installed (RCE T2s , Group N tophats, and white line RCA) and love it.

The car is still on jack stands due to a caliper stripping out. I'll be fixing that tomorrow and then I can give the KW's a test drive.

That sucks about stripping it, seems like a common thing.

MSI. I like it as I won't have to shim my subframe.
