Finally got a lot done.

So, I did a bunch of stuff today. Replaced a bad driver cv (it fell out in pieces), new stereo, and finally the lower prothane inserts. I do have to ask though, does anyone els have a hell of a time putting the damn lower dog one back in? It kicks my ass every time.

Definitely. Got the frame bolt in, engine bolt wonít align, loosen frame, nothing, remove frame, engine in, frame wonít align. Ugh. Took almost an hour. Never again. However, installing the prothane inserts was very simple and quick. Two good sacks with a hammer and the rubber cane out, pressed in prothane with bench vice and a socket, done. Took like 10 minutes. It is very nice and smooth on the shifting now, huge difference over a stock NEW rubber mount. But, I could probably attribute it a lot to the new cv as well, it was toasted, no boots left, barely any grease, it was done for a while ago.

Thanks man. But, just when I think itís finally doing great, it slaps me in the face. Driver side outer door handle works intermittently as of this moment. Just started today, went to head home after meeting the mrs and friends for tacos, canít get in, hit the unlock on the fob and the passenger unlocks, but the driver goes click click click and wonít unlock. So, crawled in through the passenger side to find out I can push the lock button manually inside and the inner handle and outer both work, kind of. The outer opens the door on the last 1/32 of its pull. Ugh.
