it would start to seat itself, and then it would pop out.. it has to be lined up damn near perfectly..

i love the Massive ones because it has the full boot all the way around the end of the end link.. the Moog is only to the front edge.

Yes you can put it in the second O2's location, that's what I did on Ole' Yeller and what I will do on the SVT

You need to put them on to cover the hole on the back side of them or you will loose the grease that's in them

Me too, they cut their own threads so you have to be careful when screwing them in.

I'm thinking of getting the Massive ones too, only because they use a Heim joint which will last must longer, plus their adjustable which means we wouldn't wear them out as fast since we can adjust them to our ride height.

DJ, I have no idea how to take it out in a safe way, and can't tow it to mechanic the way it sits now.
If you have any ideas, let me know. I don't wanna die on Travis' backyard, seriously.

eh can be done, not fun in any way.

If you have 2 jack stands you can use one to hold the motor up while taking out the transmission but still space will be tight and ideally you want to drop the subframe to get more space.

I'd drop the sub frame to get it out. You won't die if something happens, you'll most likely die from the complications of something happening like the trans falls on your arm and breaks it, then you get an infection from the break and die from that lol. Really it's not that hard to get to the trans. Though if your pulling it you might has well just drop the whole motor and trans out at the same time and then disconnect them once you pulled them out from under the car.
