      Last year a few buddies were over before a show, I was using back to black on my engine hoses. One leans over and says "you see Geoff, this is why people hate you."

      haha

      I've got to give credit where it's due. I replaced all my control arms/end links/tie rods today (well, rie rods and lower rear control arm are getting done tomorrow) with the FCP option #3 kit and I made a couple observations:

      1: the actual control arm that was damaged (read: disintegrated) I have never replaced and I have owned the car for 5 years.
      2: the upper control arms and sway bar links that I replaced with FCP units 50,000 miles ago were still in great shape when I took them off today.
      3: the only thing that actually wore away that was recently replaced (but again, 50,000 miles ago) were the tie rod ends, and my car has been auto-crossed, and then daily driven at 23.5" GTF for over 40,000 miles

      Big thumbs up to the guys (Nick especially) at FCP!

      Hey Geoff, I came across a DIY for replacing the driveshaft support bearing a couple weeks ago. The write up is floating around somewhere, and could have maybe been on the B5 S4 section of Audizine. I'm going to try to search it for you. There was a technique they used to separate the 2 halves, and getting the driveshaft out should be easy for you. This will save you a couple dollars, and 034 has an upgraded support.

      I found that too...problem is the bearing is like $135 shipped to me, then about 4 hours of my time, then it still needs to be balanced and that U-joint should be replaced. The $350 quote I got for all of that (he is also suppying the hanger bearing) seems more bang for the buck.

      TBH I have no idea... But my Dads name is Gonzalo, my two brothers name are Grecco and Gregor. So I guess there's a theme going on lol

      You know how you sort of get used to things? I had my car aligned today and luckily nothing was too out of whack. I'm running -1.8* up front and -2.1* in the rear...very conservative. However. I thought afterward that my car was sitting weird so I decided to take some GTF measurements (it wasn't sitting weird, FWIW).

      22.75" up front and 23" in the rear...not bad for 18s.

      ...I was starting to think it looked too high...
