Update** Miles 110,072

I refreshed the entire rear end of the car with new diff, RTAB, and subframe bushings. I went with AKG Poly95a all around. Guibo and trans mounts were replaced with OEM parts, they didn't look terrible but the guibo had started to tear. Most importantly NO cracks found!!! I reinforced the subframe with AKG plates as well. The guys at Autotuning House in Orlando came highly recommended and they did a fantastic job, no complaints. The oil pan gasket was leaking and I just replaced the oil so I replaced that as well while they had the car. New Oil went in after

Ill upload the rest of the photos when I can.

I started to see some coolant leak from the lower rad hose and before I went all out on refreshing the entire cooling system I decided to take a look first at the coolant sensor since I did see it dripping down from there. Sure enough it was the o-ring on the sensor. I didn’t want to wait for shipping so I paid $4.50 for it at Triangle Auto here in town.

There was a couple of DIY’s in here stating a lot of coolant would come out but only a drizzle came out for me as I never opened the system up. Once replaced I did bleed the air out (if any) of the system.

Finally got around getting an alignment after the rear refresh. Took some specs off the buildjournal website.
