What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

Recommended Posts

filled her up with 93

took her to get the new Conti ExContact DWS 215/45/17s installed. Then an alignment tomorrow!

ps. when I brake kinda hard, not super hard the car pulls to the same side I have alignment issues.... this an alignment issue or brake piston issue?

Check the control arm bushings, they are bad on both the 850 and the s70 we have and both car's pull when braking

Going to give the new catch can routing a try. See if those two 90* bends work or not. There were mixed opinions about it and since I had it ready to go, I thought what the hell. ;)

Yeah, I was thinking of getting tires first to help with it, then an alignment (i have the lifetime warranty), and then look at the control arms. I mean, if I get new ones it can only help my ride so it wont be too bad.

Replace the control arms first.

If you drive with the new tires they will wear out the sides quickly due to being misaligned.

It'll get worse and worse the more you drive on it, so replace them soon.

Yeah, spring time when it gets warmer probably. Last time I did a 9 and 3 and 12 and 6 test there was not a lot of movement.

Drove it a mile.

It's in dire needs of an alignment (we knew that)

It handles like it's on rails

My fender liners hate me (at least what's left of them)

No squeaks, rattles, bounciness, or other weird issues

Happy Matt is happy.

jealous joey is jealous.

You know where to go when the time comes. ;)

I may need an axle soon, lemme know how you like those Napa ones. My driver's side is getting loud.

And Dave, Pat: I have a used control arm. Throw a new boot on for good measure (rubber is starting to crack) but it has zero play and looks/acts fine otherwise. Boots are less than $5 at Napa, I think they can even put it on for you.
