The rear trailing arms are (slightly) adjustable. You loosen the three bolts for it's bracket, then shimmy it in or out to correct rear toe.

WTF? I'm trying to loosen the manifold/midpipe nuts, and a 15mm socket fits kinda loose, but I can't get a 14mm on. They aren't stripped (yet).

I hammered on a 14, but now I can't get the nut out of the socket... I don't think that it's because of rust. I think it's just a weird size. And of course, I don't have any SAE between 14 and 15.

edit: let me try 9/16, that's just a little bigger than 14.

Got me some battlefield 3. Who's playing with me tonight?

By the way Cj. If 9/16 worked on a 14, then you can blame corrosion. To get stuck bolts out, bang the socket on the ground using a long extension. Seriously

You bang the tip of the socket only. Otherwise, take a punch and use a vice to hold the socket. Or take a bolt that fits the nut, put it in a vise, and use the ratchet to wiggle it out

Are you referring to the normal force? Or do you have to break it into components to find the forces in the x and y direction?

I used the force, and it worked. Jedi force, that is.


Didn't get as far as I wanted to today, tomorrow is gonna be a loooooong day.

I got pretty much everything off except for the bellhousing bolts.
