      He can but I'm sure that will take a few days.

      Ant, If you take off that top nut, the plate will come off and you'll be able to hammer out those pressed in studs. Your local fastener store should have new ones.

      Sucks though.

      Sweet. That's what I'm hoping to do.

      Anyways. I'm pretty much done other than doing the fronts and sensors.

      I went to test out the system and when I turned on my car... Nothing.

      I panicked. A little part inside of me died.

      5 minutes later I realized I didn't have the main fuse plugged in.

      Worked until 4:30 this morning and the woke up at 8 to finish the job.

      Fixed the strut. Now all I have left is the sensors.

      Had to troubleshoot a couple things. Never got to do the sensors. I broke a braided line and had to order another one. Swapped in my coil to drive home. Then found out that I ripped my abs wire. Fml

      At 5 seconds you can see me recovering from when the wrench slipped and I busted my chin on my fender. I bled for an hour or so. The camera missed it by a second.

      Remember to put the fittings on before you put them on the car. I managed to forget twice.

      It wont let me drive at all.

      Edit: I was under the assumption that the car wouldnt drive without abs. Im wrong so now I have to figure out why my car won't move. Now I'm under the assumption that I somehow broke a cv joint.

      Passenger side outer cv broke. It's on it's way to Marty.

      Got the new braided line in and installed it.

      Pulled out the bump stops. Still only sitting at 23.5 in the rear. I have to modify the bag mount.
