Do I remember correctly that you installed the solid sub frame bushings, or am I remembering someone else...

Looks like he has the Pedders sub frame bushings not the Pfadt solid bushings.

Some sharp folks on here... My question was going to be if you had the Pfadt solid bushings, did it make it much noisier...

Corey told me today that there is a pile of parts big enough to make a grown man cry... All he has left to order is the clutch...

Two friends of mine are going up there to have a set of cutouts put on one of the cars... They will get any pics if there are any worth taking...

If your refering to my Buddy "Heliwrench" He keeps a pretty close eye on things. It's all good. He will part of the CDN West contingent. Probably meet him and few other Bud's at Canada House floor.

The wait is over! Tomorrow I pick up my one piece driveshaft from the Driveshaft Shop. Round up a few more items for the next round of mods on Tuesday. Cold and clear up here in the Great White North. Looks like a one day permit and a test drive will happen later this week.

Well driveshaft is here. But an unfortunate shipping mistake will kind of screw up the program. There going to rush ship the missing part, So you never know, maybe by the end of the week.
