Jeff = fail at shipping and ordering parts for his car.

The poly bushings for the stock mount are $18.95 from Massive plus shipping. If that guy doesn't get back to me, I'm going that route.

And I forgot to mention with the poly rear sway bushings that I was having a noticeable increase in understeer with the SVT over the zx3 with the same suspension (granted I didn't have all seasons on the zx3) but the bushings really helped. The stock rear bushings were SHOT!

so WTF?!?!?
you probley wont get it until this evening, shipping companys ship's to business befor they go to homes.

On a side note i tried one of those 5 hour energys an boy do they taste like crap but about an hour or 2 later you are flying, then crash to where you'll fall asleep.

Well.....here is what i got....but first....

REAR ENGINE MOUNT FROM HELL!!!!!



RUN AWAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

okay now....

my two new toys:)


pic of old shifter (i failed to get a comparison pic of the two shafts..... i suck at how-to's)


new shifter in place :)


:( problem piece....although i think i know what to do, just want to make sure....


^ that is the shifter boot inside out, that small black shaft (probably the only time those words are ever together:)) is too big for my shifter....(god damnit....) I think i need to cut it off just under the thick part that make the top of the shifter boot, when right side out.... does any of this make sense?



here is what brad white's looks like, he has the F2 short throw though...... so i donno....
