Yea thats good though. Fixing problems that would otherwise go overlooks if you bought off the market. You get out what you put in. That car can easily become a $10k vehicle.

After seeing all this talk about control arms, I checked mine out and of course they’re damaged! Gonna have to talk to Braymond lol



Waiting for these parts to arrive next week:
-Steering Rack (rackdoctor)
-Steering Coupling (oem)
-Power Steering hose (fcp euro kit)
-Tie rod ends (lemforder)
-Transmission bushings (lemforder)
-Control arm bushings (condor speed shop)

Not sure if I’m missing anything else for a front end refresh (besides sway bar+engine mounts, holding off on those until my pockets recover)

Last time I drove the car, the wheel would shake when I slightly hit the gas pedal. I’m hoping to get rid of all that unwanted play.
Edit: this is also gonna be my first time replacing a steering rack so this should be interesting.

How far down should the steering guibo fit on the steering rack? I can’t seem to get it any lower than this! Thanks in advance
