Don't do it paul.
If you do though, I'll give you thirty bucks and a cheeseburger for it.

Ya stock speakers are good, I'm upgrading front ones, and wondering if I should eliminate or can leave stock ones on the back, and that dilemma comes from the fact that I'd need to deaden the panels behind back speakers to keep it uniform sounding with deadened front.

Little did I know how much time and work would installing the new sound system cost me over last 2 months, but yeah it's worth it.

reeeeealy?? I know nothing of this ;)

gloves, hm...... they are like water, evaporate over time, you know :D
aaaaand you forgot to mention timing belt tensioner :P

you can come whenever you want, as long as it's next week, Friday or Saturday, haha, cause that's when I'll be struggling with wheel bearing and suspension swap :P

decided to work and on audio today, and leave the hard work for next week so I have more time to read about it, and also start hitting bolts with PB Blaster over those 7 days to make it less of a PITA when I get on it.

oh I forgot to mention that squeaky sound are the sway bar end links.... the suspension turned out to be fine, with no leaks and still in decent shape, which of course I found out after the new suspension arrived, heheh, so now I'm in hunt for end links and probably will use autozone ones, yaaa more $ out of my empty pocket :(

but I'll try to offset it by selling my used suspension, I imagine if i put it up for around $100 some of the non-SVT owners will jump at it to get lower ride and better handling for cheap.

wheel bearing on the other hand..... makes me pray every time I get into my car, for that it wouldn't seize when I'm at highway speeds, it's really that bad, and above the noise and vibrations I noticed the negative camber angle on that wheel is increasing too :/ I got me the hub and bearing assembly to make it a lil easier, but I know it's gonna be a PITA anyway, and extremely time consuming since when I'm there i need to change the end links and suspension too.


If you guys could see my browser over past few weeks, like just now I have around 20 tabs open about calculus, about 12 on quadratic equations, also around 12 on social studies, 20 on ford focus 'HOW TOs' + youtube, and South Park website, AND a nice set of 500+ pages books on my desk. uggghhhh ... I .. neeed.... some ... life PLEASE :P
