Small update:
Got me LED blinkers in the mail and got them wired up.

Installed them in the high beam housings. The pic is when they are lit up. But since the LED strips are using the running light wires, the blinkers are just that- blinkers smile.gif

I like to think I don't take shortcuts smile.gif my roommate has offered to cut my stock springs before I had my megans, said "just rattle can it" on various parts of my car..
But I always opt to wait until I can do it right, because I know I would have to go back and do it over later if I don't do it correctly now. thumbsup.gif

So far no problems thumbsup.gif
I knew before installing them there's a risk with lug centric spacers, but I only drive like 10-15 miles a day and never drive my car hard so all should be fine.

Got an update or two..

Last week I finished my rear conversion from 5x100 to 5x114



And this week I bought my friends touchscreen HU which I'm super excited about. The sound is 100% better than my old stereo and LOOKS better too biggrin.gif

Thanks! I looked/tried but the mounting holes won't let it move any farther back. Even though it doesn't sit flush it doesn't protrude enough to bother me.
And for 100 bucks with no scratches and works perfect I can't complain much lol.

Also the primary reason for the hub conversion was because it was cheaper to replace with camry parts than celica parts.. and the reason I replaced them was because of a slight wobble on the pass. rear hub and a rollercoaster type sound at slow speeds.

However the sound is still there kindasad.gif not better or worse. So what else could cause that type of sound? I can only think of the endlinks but that doesn't seem likely to me?

Anyone got ideas?
