      New hotness, parts store rotors, Technafit lines, ATE pads, new wheel studs, IPD poly sway bar bushings, havenít assembled the end links yet. Need to get a hard line for the front off a JY car as one leaks no matter how tight.

      For 10 bucks, you should snag and have shipped. Maybe you can adapt them to carry other stuff.

      Not sure if I ever pictured them but she came with Yakima ones that the guy would use to transport his kayaks, the noise was awful so I ordered keys and took them off.

      What do you do when a friend lists some sick dope ass Chinese tires thatíll fit the novas for $125, well you buy them obviously. Really wanted 205/50/15 but these were too cheap to pass.

      Had them mounted at a mom and pop place today




      Itís been on jackstands pretty much since right after I finished the front suspension work, so the new springs really have not been driven at all to settle them on top of being on jackstands left me with this sick gangster lean.



      Driving around that make it slightly better, but I either need more sidewall or lowering springs. The brakes are still not as nice as I would like them, but I think Iíve tracked it down to a caliper issue now which means bleeding the brakes for like the sixth time. Lurch need some love in the seat department so unfortunately I will likely be selling off the turbo stuff as this thing is supposed to be a cheap beater, and the automatic is on very borrowed time.

      So Iíve made a logically decision. Friends want me to come with them to gambler 500 events but I donít want to hurt Lurch, so Veronica is getting a Bad decision Works 3Ē lift. Looks like Iím gonna sell the Novas and find some Orionís and run a 205/75/15 or perhaps a little wider with a little less sidewalk.

      Some guys running the gambler 500 have baby lifts, found this guy in the Netherlands sells a 3Ē kit so I sent him some American dimma dollars. Decided to keep the steel wheels so Iím looking at a 27Ē, 205/75/14.

      Rear is in, guy that makes the kit suggested some IPD wagon overload springs. Hereís a before from a few months ago.




      Still deciding on tires, Iíll either keep these wheels and do a 27Ē tall mud tire. Or grab some 15Ē alloys from the volvo fields and choose a 28Ē tall.

      Meet Veronica



      Drilling this in the car was a pain, but hey itís done.



      Got the cold side in, just have to make some straps for the IC/Rad. Going to do a standalone transmission cooler, and a standalone oil cooler.
