      Received My CPT adjustable rear control arms with stainless steel heims today. I will adjust my suspension height this weekend, actually raising the car up to accommodate an addtional load of my upcoming Rocky Mountain Flyfishing trip. Swap out the Aristos for my RS10's. I then will be putting the CPT's on, adding a new rear bushing and getting a 4 wheel alingnment next week. Give it a full detail and wax. Then load up all the gear for 3 weeks of Colorado and Montana.

      Bought a set of front & rear rotors & Mintex pads from Autotech to go on the R this past week. I also bought a headlight leveling kit fo my Euro head lamps from ECS tuning. I have a case of Amsoil 75-90 gear oil that I bought, so I can change the trans and rear diff fluid out. I just need to take a day off work to do it all.

      Well, I didn't get to the rear diff, but I did get to give it a bath. Once I get a day off (either next Friday or the following Monday for Easter), I will install the brakes, change the rear diff fluid and work on my headlight adjustment install (if it comes in in time). I spent part of the day this morning making a set of rear adjustable rear control/track arms. I have to stop by and pick up more material for making a couple more sets. Here is a pic of the set that I finished up today. I need to get some paint to coat the arms, as I ran out while spraying the outer end links:

      I installed the drilled rear rotors and Mintex brake pads yesterday and tomorrow I hope to install the front rotors and pads. Today, I wired up the head light levelers and rear fog light. It would have been better is ECS had made the kit come with a power and ground wiring option so that you didn't have to do anything but plug it up and install the levelers.
