Now for what you've been waiting for. Pics.. let me know what you think.

Yup, drove it around a bit after I put it on and it rides nice so far. Only scraped driving up my driveway a little bit. Didn't scrape even pulling into the huge dip in the driveway to the gas station across the street.

That'll change when you do the front, but thats the price you pay to be cool.

All you need now is some chrome hub caps and you will look like half the cars that drive around here. Looks like the ass end is busted and still has the steelie wheels. lol but on the serious side looks good so far will have to see it when its done. How long did it take you to do just that?

Bout an hour by myself from taking the hubcaps off to putting them back on. With cutting the bumpstops too.

Okay guys I need help. I can't get thr strut tower bolts off!!! ahh, I went to town and bought a 1/2 inch pneumatic impact and still cant get it off!!! Someone told me that since I'm doing it by myself it would be 100x easier to loosen the strut tower bolt while the car is on the ground. Is this the problem or does anyone know what I'm talking about?? It shouldnt be this damn hard with an impact wrench! gah...

If you are talking about the big 21mm(i think) at the top, yes its easier if you have it on the ground. Mine came off with no problem. If it still spins the shaft, you can take it off and jimmy rig a special tool with the allen and a socket. But you have to figure out a way to turn the nut without the shaft spinning. A chain wrech on the socket should do it. If you take it out before the nut is off, dont forget the spring compressors. lol
Also dont forget to put a jack under the strut so you dont bang your halfshaft.
