svtfiend Installed the preassembled fronts of my new SVT suspension kit and 2 new sway bar links and cleaned my engine bay a little. It no longer bottoms out over minor bumps and feels great, but the rear shocks are still leaking and I have race craft springs in the back so its lower in the back until next weekend...

In a Focus group I finished up the Zetec DOHC timing belt kit and waterpump today. The belt was original at 140k miles. Thanks goes to the How To thread on it. I'm waiting for the new FelPro valve cover gasket from Amazon. It was almost half what the local parts stores wanted and they didn't include the grommets.

cannaert Had to buy new both rear LCA today. Also had to order in SPC rear LCA cam bolts, The stock ones were so badly stuck in there I had to cut them to remove the dumb things.
Today kicked my ass.

Also power washed the complete underside of the car after I got it stripped down.

FocusedOnSVT Fixed PCV valve and elbow, fixed brake booster vacuum line, installed a (I'm already prepared for the bashing and whatnot) N1 eBay fart can in place of the stock resonator. Looks cool IMO, didn't really add any sound to the exhaust since i kept the muffler and first resonator.

A Focused Family So I was just about to put the steaks on and decided to check craigslist real quick. I've been looking for a set of wheels/tires for our new 2002 ZX5 since it came with snow tires/steelies.

BOOM...up pops these.

250 bucks with a less than 3 week old set of tires lol.

Came off of a blowed up SPI Focus (valve drop).

sailor Only removed shocks on mine, and yes the 36" bar to get old ones out without a compressor.

One bar to lower the suspension & another to lever out the spring.

The other issue is Getting the dumb thing out from that small space with the compressor installed. I got the one out with the use of my 36" pry-bar.

I also need to get the torch out and heat up the bottom arm bolt. It is been Michigan welded in-place. This sucker is Fighting me and I hate it.
