      Today it was towed to the shop:


      Ran fine all weekend. Went to start it this morning and it sounded like something came loose while it was cranking. Tried again and no start. Tried again and it started but was making a god awful racket under the hood (sounded like a diesel) but no CEL. 96k on the odo with all the regular service. Thankfully we still have 4k on the extended and I'm in a loaner (2012 Passat...nice car). Hopefully it is something easy.

      doh! Makes sense thanks for the info I didn't jack it up. I knew something wasn't right because when I installed the springs I used OEM links just fine.

      Put coils in the rear. All the way down perches still in. Didn't get to do the front...it began to rain as soon as i began to put the wheels on the back on.

      But i think when i do the front im going to take the perches out from the rear.

      finished making new tweeter pods for the doors. my tweeters were to big to fit in stock locations.
      they came out pretty good. eventually i will take them back off and sand and paint one more time because when i was putting them back on, the paint cracked a little on the driverside one

      Rotated my wheels and tires, did some paint touch up on them, replaced my hub centric and installed the 5mm spacer on the back. Next gotta readjust the rear perches since I can now really see how off they are

      Drove by the shop to see my car still sitting in the same place it was on Thursday. I hate my mechanic.
      Replica wheels are like fake boobs. They look good on the outside, but when it comes to quality, Nothing beats the real thing.

      same thing happened to me. Tried to start it 10 minutes after just driving it and it wouldnt start made some noises. Tired the second time and started making horrible ticking trying to crank over and realized something broke (thinking timing chain skipped). Decided to just put a new engine in it. Still haven't figured out what was wrong with my original.

      make sure you take your helpers out in the front then. if you go perches out you will never be able to reach that height in the front. what brand coils?

      Cleaned the windows and wheels tonight. Can't have it looking like absolute crap when it goes to the dealer in the morning.

      finally,

      painting the votex lip, removing the skirts for cleaning and reapplying, cleaning the brakes and wheel wells, rotating the tires. Not a lot, but it will be the most I've worked on it in a while
