    I'm just reading through all these posts again, a chronicle of the time spent and it's kinda cool. This summer I'd like to make one of the meets if you're all still doin those meets. We should put something together. This should be done by then and I'll have a little room to breathe for a bit.

    Well, I've come to another step in the process. I ordered a bunch of stuff. KW V2's, hard race bushings, rear rotors, replacing clutch, pressure plate and flywheel, subframe washers (don't know if they make a difference) and doing a return line so got ktuned fuel rail, gauge and regulator.

    Questions, you guys done this? Hard lines or braided fuel line?
    Also, should just go ahead and do tie rods and ball joints? 120-40 thousand miles on the OD.

    The fun of ordering parts! Not sure about the subframe washers either. Regarding your fuel question, we did a fuel return on our FG2. -6an feed, OEM hardline as return. Works great and surprisingly holds power! As for suspension, tie rods and ball joints may prove beneficial - use a visual inspection along with how the car feels to decide if it's worth doing.

    Keep us in the loop!

    I have had a major issue with removal of rear trailing arm toe bolt. I may need to replace the trailing arm. This sucks balls because as I now see those bushings look fairly stout. As in I doubt replacing the rear bushings with the Hard Race bushing was even a good idea.
    Perhaps the fronts will make a big difference but I can't see how replacing the LCA and spindle bushings in rear will even be a noticeable difference. I will post pics of the progress once I get those pieces apart and begin to push the bushings in.
    I ordered tie rod ends as they didn't seem to have excessive play but they were loose, probably going to put in new ball joints as well. I had to order new front top hats as the 05-06 ones were a different style. This really had me confused at first. So still waiting on those parts.
    Other issues include stuck drive shaft in front that is probably shot. Pictures to come.
    If you have any diy's on return line that you could point me to. A few I read were not a good idea and I

    Tried everything. Sawzall barely fit, I had a hacksaw that didn't work, heated it up to cherry red. My neighbor grabbed my mallet and bent the shit out of it. I was going to try a different type of hacksaw blade and do it by hand but now?

    Anyone know where these go in the Oem top hat setup? I can't find in manual nor can I find reference to it in the shop manual.
