I list the necessary tools in jest, as in the category of "joke" and not a DIY on how to do this. If you're rear cradle suddenly becomes dislodged as a result of missing cup(s), I can not be held accountable for your misfortune. Should said "thief" comment that he learned this trick on the "internet", he will be flogged immediately by thousands of diehard Camaro enthusiasts; not to mention car guys and gals around the world that would agree that said thievery is "f'd up dude"

That is all
Nice disclaimer

EDIT: would a 24 mm socket work better???

So after you left something dawned on us....

...I'm driving all 4 of us in the Camaro...that's not gonna work.

So, tomorrow (err, today) I'm gonna talk to Mom and Dad and see what their thoughts are on me using Mom's Escalade to tow. Brendan has a car hauler we can use, it's just a matter of figuring out what Mom would drive while I'm gone with her car.

And now I'm stuck paying twice the amount in fuel as the 6.2L in the Escalade sucks the tank dry, probly get 10-11 MPG. Hmm..

Chicanery is your middle name I know where you can find a nice clean set on a trailer where they won't be missed for two days.

This is the same logic we used after our son's football camp schedule changed and he wanted to come with us to the fest. We are now planning on towing with our F250.

The upside to this is more space for hauling additional "goodies" to and from the fest.

The downside is we wont get to "play" with the rest of the group on the way there. Just have to save that for the fest.

Hey Rob, Glad to hear that the suspension stuff is getting worked out. Pete really doesn't mess around when it comes to educating people. He and I have talked several times, and he's always got something new to explain to me. He'll take good care of you.

I'm wondering if we should have towing drags. You put your car on the trailer and drag against someone else in their truck towing their car.

Some of these engineering feats really impress me. Carbon fiber drive shafts, Transmissions that withstand 1500 hp, Accuracy in suspension yada yada yada..........

But how the **** do they make a drive shaft that doesn't tweak and bend and twist for that thing there?

4 piece drive shaft? hahahahaha
