Would have been nice to know that hours earlier so I could just do it while the car was up. But the Vette is actually easier to get up than my car.

Went back through and read a few more posts about the new wheels. PQ, how can you say the wheels "aren't quite doing it for me" ?????????????

Have you seen this pic???




I think they look awesome! The car looks like it's ready to kick some ass (show and go asses!).

I guess I just got so used to my wheels getting so much attention. They are missing something though. I think I may buy some chrome center caps?

Well, I got the part on today. Had to take the entire fender well insert all the way out. Only took about an hour and a half but when I was all buttoned up and done I forgot to put the insulation packing back in. I said screw it, I'll do it next time I get the car up.

Oh, and the gear oil change eliminated the rear end noise completely.

OH hell ya. EASILY. The car just feels like it's almost a step ahead. I swear the throttle feels a little quicker. I know it isn't but the wheels make it feel that way. More nimble.

Traction is much better but still not great.
