I have heard of people having trouble with the washers and bolt method, but it worked pretty well for me. :-) I later bought a press to do the rubber bushings, and I agree that the press would be...

I assume you are speaking about the rear suspension, in which case I think they are the same. (Are they the same part number? If yes, it is certain they are the same.)

Weird. I used to run Azenis ST-215 on my daily driver and then got a set of Direzza DZ101s. The Direzzas had WAY less grip (but were otherwise a decent, more comfortable street tire).

Wait, you...

If money is no object, keep your street car comfortable and buy a race car for the track. :) Similar to brake pads, what works on the track does not work well on the street. There are no coil-overs...

Yes it matters, or your fade and balance adjustments won't work. Or the front of the car might end up "left" and the back "right", which as Phantom420 suggests will sound weird.

Or rather, it...

It is quite possible that your aftermarket toe links (and trailing arms) are worn out. I think the rod ends they use generally wear out faster than the stock bushings. I have already replaced the rod...

If the bolt is in the same place (the middle of the bushing) it seems like the shock will be in the same place. I don't see how the amount of tilt will be any different. What I am missing?

You probably need to find a way to tap or pry the bolt loose. It is likely that there is some corrosion between the bolt and the spacer(s) causing those parts to stick together. Spray some...

Definitely A'PEXi RX6. Not sure if it is the "76" or the "77", but my 2000-2001 A'PEXi catalog lists the compressor inducer at 56mm for the 76 model and 61mm for the 77 model. The extra velocity...

This doesn't really help solve your problem, but be aware that there are only three coils -- one for each trailing plug, and a single coil shared by both leading plugs.

Just to check that it isn't...

All the angles change. But the question asked for one angle. (Front) caster makes sense as the best answer to that vague question. But I agree that it is a poor question.

Seriously, just cut them off. Removing them the other way is a ton of work and totally not worth the trouble. Use some snips and cut down toward the center, and then wiggle them around until it comes...

Whichever one is lighter and has a lower CG should handle better. Usually the single turbo setups are lighter with their tubular manifolds and generally less total cast iron. But seriously, even...

There are two OEM brake sytems for the FD. "99 J-spec" is not really enough info to tell if those are the larger ones, but they might be. Post a link.

What year and model is your car? There were a few different stock rear bars on the FD (if that is what you have), and that can affect the upgrade plans.

But generally, start with a front bar.

The main risk is rubbing in front. 245/45-17 is definitely pushing it, and may be too large.

In other words, it is optimal to recirculate on the FC, since it has a MAF fuel injection system. The FD does not measure air flow (it has a "speed-density" FI system), and so can vent to atmosphere....

Consider moving this to the general 3rd gen section. The diff isn't really part of the suspension.

If you do drag-style launches, the stock diff will break pretty quickly with that much torque....

I used my original RX-7 seal with my 929 master, too. IIRC, it just seemed like the seal in the 929 master was not a good match for the RX-7 reservoir. I don't know if it was that the seal in my...
