#32749, "New front end= No money"




          

Well, I've done it. I went crazy and spent 1300.00 for a whole new front end. gsx brake upgrade, RSDSM sway bar kit, ball joint and tie rods. The Tein and kyb are in it too. That's a lot of money in my dsm.

#32724, "all new "




          

I thought about selling my car so i can get a m3. i thought really hard about it and with all the work i have done to it and not seeing everything come together would be a shame so i kept the eclipse. I bought all new everything for the front end and i just picked up a set of RMDSM sway bars, tein springs, all joints, and kgb gr2s. this car is going to stick to the ground. the next would be the gsx brake upgrade. i had to tell someone

Thanks for the update. Please make an effort to capitalize the pronoun I and the first letter of your sentences.

Quoted because it can never be stated enough.

Glad to hear you chose to buy quality parts instead of some cheap knockoff parts that would only fail at the worse possible time.

Because when you're too lazy to capitalize "I" in refrence to yourself it means that you have no self respect. Also, it's lazy and propogating more laziness. If you're too lazy to capitalize proper nouns like "I", then maybe you're too lazy to bother taking the great advice on this forum. This is not a community of sticker laden honduh ricers that can't be bothered to use proper spelling, grammar or capitalization.

Read the rules of posting, you'll see that proper use of the english language is required here, and capitalizing "I" IS proper use of the english language.

Agreed, that adds up pretty quick!

Just finished up at the Rock Auto checkout with just ball joints and all control arms... wow!

This was upper ball joints, lower laterals, and the curved control arms. ~$475. Not bad, but enough. Unfortunately I forgot the tie rods.

You could've save yourself some cash if you printed out the discount coupon from Advanceauto parts.

That coupon is still valid, I printed out few last week. I forget sites name but do a google search.

No, not bad at all. I stayed with MOOG, I've put their parts on other cars and was very pleased with their quality.

Tie rods will be ordered tonight. Might order the inners as well just to be safe.

Anytime you replace your outter's you should do your inner's as well. mog is a good brand but I'll still go with what ever they have at auto zone, O'rilleys have Master Pro control arms. but I got my lateral arms that are mopar for really cheap.

Oh well... too late now! They are already on.

Car would be on the ground, but I've got a compression arm with a sheared off bolt head that isn't moving.

1 can of PB, heat, and it's still not moving.

Are the bolts running through these stainless steel?
