Yeah, thanks! Yeah, I know that deal was great but it was a PITA to get. I spent 3 hours wrestling them off. I knew the price they would be if a focus ever came in with them never thought one would though. Although while I was waling through the cars my girlfriend said "This one has disc!" I was like quit lying an when I seen them I let out the most unmanliest scream ever. I don't regret it at all, was worth it.

Got the bad hub bearing replaced, got a the base tune from tom installed, had fun with the lower dog mount putting poly bushings in it. And by fun I mean it broke while pressing the old ones out. I tried using a hammer but it wouldn't work so I started pressing it out and well yeah I have a pic of it broken but not the new mount i had to buy with the p.b. in it I'll get it later. Also have the exhaust hung now. But a new problem the heat shield has fallen completely off so it's now resting on top of the pipes. I just don't see how people can't take care of their stuff.

If its just the charge wire that burnt up, you can make one (better than stock too). Just use ring terminals at each end. It would be like 1 wire of the "big 3".
