Stuff you need to fix but are putting off

Have you done so much to the car today that it just doesn't fit into one section, or are you too damn lazy to split it all up? Either way, this is the section for you.

Stuff you need to fix but are putting off

Post by Briano1234 » Fri Apr 27, 2012 2:12 pm

Just today, I was going to replace the drivers side wheel bearing, strut, inner and outer tie-rod, plus the ball joint as I have a vibration on that side that I don't have on the other. But crap, I got out of he Doctors office too late, and didn't have a bearing separator and have to run to "liburn" (harborfreight) to get one.... and well why do today what I can put off till next weeK. I don't really feel like driving to Lilburn..... :)



(ps I plan on doing both sides, but was just going to do the drivers side today.)

Well I have ordered a new Cat, and header for the blue cabby. Getting a new top and pad for the Green cabby, as well as a oil cooler install sometime next week.
Giving the Top, and Pad as a "wedding gift" to my baby daughter... I know AWE GEE, the asshole of the forum has a soft spot.
