  • I was singing the praises of my electric impact gun today. 25 year old bolts from a region of the country where rust lives don't like moving without some persuasion.

      I think Brian does that too, but only when working on the ignition.

      HA!

      I kill me...
      Yes, I'm a CarJunkie... How many times would YOU rebuild the same engine before getting a crate motor?

        My Craftsman cordless impact got a lot of excercise with my suspension work.

          "The front bumper filler did not fare so well on the ride home. The brittle old plastic didn't like the 75mph wind on the nose of the car and it started jumping to freedom in chunks and pieces. We had about 30% left by the time we got home. These are readily available."

                • Very nice!! Have you made any progress on the suspension rebuild?
                  We did an el'cheapo suspension rebuild using bigger sway bars, better shocks, fresh springs/bushings and quicker ratio steering box on a heavy fullsize car. Night and day difference!

                  Using quality aftermarket parts and bigger diameter/wider tires should be eye opening when done! Then you'll REALLY want more power!

                    Ordered and awaiting delivery.

                    You can have them when you pry them out of my cold, dead hands, ...oh wait, that's something else. Right??

                        Andy...you bet. It is a bear of a job to do on your back in the driveway, but progress is being made. Rear uppers installed and the passenger side is 100% done with the lowers, new bushings, spring, and shock installed. Tomorrow I am hoping to get the lower on the driver's side in as well as the spring and shock. Then it will be time to blow the front apart.

                              Gee, I wouldn't know anything about lying on my back doing suspension work.

                              PS, I noticed today that my steering radius has improved dramatically since the new parts. Bonus!!

                              • Hmmm.... Maybe you should do a performance test with just the rear done!
                                Although I assume it would just make the front push, which isn't much fun. If it induced snap oversteer....that could be interesting....
