    Well, I started at 7:00 PM. Drove home, backed the car into the driveway, and started taking things apart. I installed the sir-g rear brakes and trailing arms. While I had em handy, I went ahead and installed some energy suspension rear trailing arm bushings (those are a bitch and 3/4 to install) Also installed some russel stainless brake lines. I recieved my "wicked tuning" rear LCAs in the mail today too, so I put those on. 8 hours total, stopped to eat, took a couple of 15 minute brakes.. about two hours went into removing the old LCA bushings and cleaning things up. 8 freakin' hours, And I haven't bled them yet.

    So, there you have it. No pics or anything, I'm too freakin' tired.


    Good night.

    I did the same thing a while ago, and had a shop replace the bushings all the way around. I just took the parts to them. They charged me like 200 bucks, but it was worth it.
