QUOTE (BonzaiCelica)
Beams axles(wasn't able to install the passenger side because threads were slightly smashed and no shop had a big enough tool for it, ill put it on later. The section between the axle bracket on passenger side and where it plugs into transmission is 5mm thicker vs McPherson axle. And of course they have more bearings according to Mr 2grfe dead pic links!


Yes all SS-II & SS-III use the 6 bearing set up so not just superstrut.


Couple of questions, are you using the correct brakelines for the front, as it looked like in old pics you were using factory McPherson ones? Second (hard to tell in pics) did you get new superstrut top hats


thumbsup.gif thanks for the shout out in the video. Copy me a bit by going to red though laugh.gif


Looking forward to more progress..

my other friend who's building his SS-II into a track monster has somewhat salvaged the axle with the busted end. we might do a hybrid ordeal on it.

well it wont be the same shade of red thats for sure. he likes your red color as well.

as far as brake line. yes its stock mcpherson lines. i replaced all 4 corners with some wholesale aftermarket lines that went for cheap. the only way i'll convert to proper superstrut lines is when i buy those braided lines that you see on ebay that sell for $200 plus shipping. forget the brand name. secondly, yes i got new top mounts from the st185 chassis if i remember correctly.

i was trying to justifiy buying oem lines but the price was around $120 for the fronts alone... or something to that manner

Thanks to smaay for his how too guide for pulling engine

Almost 4 and a half months later...

Car is still at body shop. All they did was primer body except front bumper and weld in piece so i can mount interior dome light. They also removed inner part on roof where the sunroof would sit n made it flush so i can mount hardtop headliner.

They promised me 3 separate times they would finish it. Straight lies. They can't finish it and dont ŵant to admit it. Im taking car to another shop.

You're not having a lot of luck with your car I must admit :-(

Hopefully this will get fixed soon so you can enjoy your nice ride again!!!
