so i installed my new oreilly generic swaybar endlink yesterday. thanks to ray for helping me out with my derp moment when i couldnt get the bolt off. i was just trying to turn it with an allen wrench lol. also recharged my A/C so i dont sweat my ass off every time i drive home from work. this morning when i first pulled the car out it was making a clunking sound from the front right (side where i installed the endlink). it went away after i got above 50, and hasn't come back yet, so maybe it was just settling in. either way im gonna double check it when i get home. torqued it to 50 ft/lbs and i figured that was enough. no specs were listed on the box. now im ready for autox this weekend!

I need to replace my end links again, I only have roughly 10k mi on it them. I got the Autozone ones, which at one point looked identical to the Moog ones and had a grease nipple, which are the ones on Ole' Yeller. The ones that I bought for the SVT didn't have a nipple and seemed not has beefy.

Yay! I still haven't done anything with those camber arms. I swear they are too pretty to put on any car lol



I got my tune in Raymond! Feels great, though I need an ORP so I can use my wide band for fine tuning, I wouldn't want you to be the only almost fully tuned lol

IM thinking we can they are not too far apart from each other and being there is no cat anymore I don't believe their would be an issue doing it this way being that your turning off the narrowband via the tuner,but I have seen people weld another bung right near or just opposite of Bank 1 for the wideband also...... maybe Tom could chime in on this to get the best reading of A/F
