Lol, bro you live in one of the most lame states.

NC and TN have cool car meets, and lots of people tackle BRP and the Dragon.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So I'm probably just gonna answer my own question but here goes. The orientation and everything looks pretty good. I feel good about what was supplied with the kit and how I've used it. I ended up have to modify both the mounting points though. PMM posted a video and they just basically forced the m...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So taking off those little dust shields is a little more involved than I thought... Lol Anyway, here is what you do if they get stuck (which is pretty common). https://youtu.be/mNeqzK0HIqc Now I need to figure out if the rear willwoods use the rear dust shield or not. Especially because the hard-lin...

Re: Any musicians in the forum? : )

Godamn emo hipsters. Just playing, I played bass and keyboard for a little, but I found my true calling was drums. I bought a Roland TK-25v when they first came out (the high end "pro" line is too expensive). I was kind of out of it for awhile, the music scene nowadays was so lack-luster, ...

Couldn't you just get an inline fuel filter from a bike?

Also, couldn't the "illegal" vented gas caps work?

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Nevermind. I figured it out and it's retarted how these like to go in. Basically you need a lift. I don't have one. **** Cusco. They "lock" in by the two burred edged collars (one on each side). You basically push the length of the rod downward, which creates a circular locking motion. Unf...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Alright I hate these rear links. Which side are these supposed to orient? I figured the blue bushing side with the collar through it would go on the traction bracket. However I have been hammering and trying to force that other side into the chassis bracket. I took it out to study and it looks like ...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So I got to raise up the car on the fronts today, after putting the rears on. Mind you this is with control arms missing and alignment far far far from ok, but we are getting near baseline. Fronts are almost maxed out with 2-3 threads left. Rears are at 3/4, maybe a little more, of upward adjustment...

Like oldskewl said, buying on BG is your best option. There is a Swiss or some other Euro site that has a few selections, but I can't remember.

Basically finding LHD headers sucks. I got lucky and mine came with TRD.

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Ok, I think we are on the same page. As far as the larger sleeve going through the top rear axle bracket hole, It is not fitting. Now, looking at the axle bracket top rear hole, it actually has a conical shape. The sleeve slides through about 1/2mm, then it contacts a smaller diameter, half way thro...

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

So this is the orientation I came up with on the passenger side. https://youtu.be/KmlBbgp2sYs I'm not sure if it makes sense, but there is too much slack, using the short sleeve. Even if I torque it down, the length of the sleeve is too short to take up all the space between both axle bracket sides....

Re: CloudStrife's AE88

Hey Johndee, Thanks for being so thorough.. Unfortunately I'm still not seeing this orientation.. Probably one of those things that are 10x easier to describe in person. So going off my picture, that rear upper hole has to coincide with the largest hole diameter on the axle bracket. That being said,...

Hey Johndee! Thanks for the reply, I actually figured out the proper orientation just studying your thread and looking at other traction brackets. I ran into a problem however, where the largest (or I guess widest) sleeve, simply refuses to go into the largest diameter hole (the unused one). I know ...
