hehe, but yea in last couple of weeks we got very intimate with my SVT, and only now I can see how mistreated my blue b!tch was in the past.... things like non OE size of the bolts used during previous maintenance, different length of front left vs right end link, different control arms used on the back, one of them is not reinforced... and whichever idiot mounted rear swaybar end links, he didn't even use washers when doing it...... hence the friking squeaking sound I've been experiencing on the car. And the list goes on...

all in all, it would be much more fun if I had other car to use while SVT is down.

damn, at the end of the day I ended up with some serious back pain while not really making any real progress... currently stuck on rear-left bearing hub seized on the spindle.

At least buying 25" braking bar and set of impact sockets helped with most bolts (all but one).
