    i did moog bushings and moog problem solver greasable ball joints. kyb gr2 shocks and mounts. idk what my cc plates are but they are fine. im using oreilys remaned cobra calipers. both are real pbr aluminums. one has cobra on it and the other looks like its been machined off. for rotors using ebay drilled and slotted brakemotive rotors with powerstop pads

    Yes. Just when you've convince yourself you figured it out, it'll kick you in the ass hard.

    I have an issue with my suspension banging around. I have upgraded shocks struts springs bump steer and cc plates all at once. 4000 miles later i had this loud banging going on. found out that one of my struts, the nylon lock nut, the nylon itself completely wore out and was gone. so it came loose. got a new nylon lock nut and works great now no noise

    well after replacing everything nothing but the stablizer bar bushings were toast. the shocks may have been maxing out. also found that one of the bolts out of the two for my motor mount are broken off in the block... great. i saw my longtubes are touching the unibody. and it may have all just been really loose

    so today while installing the cobra calipers one of the banjo bolts striped out the caliper... i had to put a helicoil in there and that was very nerve racking.
