Yep, gone for good, I ran my mountain bike race over in Middleville at Yankee Springs on Sunday, and then raged some curvy/hilly backroads around there. It's good as gold, zero issues. Now to fix the abs sensor, sway bar end link, and then I'll be in good shape. Oh and adjust my shifter cables, anyone done that?

I adjusted the cables on the SVT.

The short shifter made it a pain in the dick to get into reverse and I dealt with it for well over a year before i realize how easy it was to re adjust them and then everything was gravy after that lol
