Sound like you have a bad brake hose, due to a loss of fluid during the replacement of your parts. Is your problem 1 or more wheels?

I would say to check your battery voltage before cranking. The battery most likely needs charging! The battery needs to stay above 12 volts, before cranking.

If you saw Yorgi run the " Dragons Tail ", you would know why he wouldn't buy these parts. His car might have been on the tree of shame, with these cheaper Ebay parts!

Most Walmart's carry Mobil 1 0w-40 in quarts, & 5 quart containers. 5 quarts currently 22.46 per jug. This is almost as cheap as most Dino oils.

As Yorgi stated, the steering angle sensor might be dirty? I would start there 1st since this would be the cheapest solution.

The back 2 cylinders are a little tough, but very doable. I think that TampaMark did a DIY around a year ago? Check the DIY section for the details.

If you have active steering on your car, make sure the shop that you choose is aware of it. The rear camber eats tire, but it sure make the car handle better!

I think I would send them a email, asking to confirm this. The EBay compatibility chart is not reliable all of the time? It does say it fits, but it might not mount properly?

Ditching the run flats will give you a better ride quality. I would bet if you PM TampaMark, he might have one sitting around? You can find a used one on the forum or Ebay, fairly cheap.

Good Luck!
