      ^ I know, right. That thing is buried. I helped my son with his recently and when it finally came out, the arm was flopping around like a politician during election year.

      What did you end up with for toe? I did zero all around on my last one and the car will shift around if you just sneeze. I may go to very minimal toe on my next go round.

      A cordless impact gun was the game changer for me in working on the car myself. I got the dual torque Milwaukee on sale for $100 off at a local hardware store. The high torque blasts off everything...

      After you unscrew a bunch of plastic nuts (they are captured on the panels) from the studs that you can see in BeeAlk's pic, they drop right down. I had mine off to do my O2 sensors and laid down a...

      I got them in tonight. It took a couple of hours because I took the springs out and generally took my time. It has to be easier to do on the FWD without the rear diff hanging off the subframe. First...
