Today after work I removed the left control arm, I have a new set to replace them with from FCPGroton. The old ball joints, particuley the outer ball joint had a ton of play. I'm hoping that I can take the new bushing and bracket to a tyre change place and get them to install it, as I don't have a press. I'm doing the right side tomorrow.

Dino, just a bit of advice: the moderators will ban you for telling stories of street racing. Just FYI.

Resurfaced front rotors, new pads, and replaced right front wheel bearing. Set tire pressures to 32 front 34 rears, detailed it. No labor cost, the techs at work hooked that **** up!

I found a free cat to replace the one on my wifes 95 325i since it didn't pass smog, and I got a cabin filter for it... Tomorrow, I'll install cabin filter, and start painting her bumper trim black again...

My Starspecs have no chance against my S52 in my 318ti with its open diff... I can't seem to find the ratio tag on mine though... Only thing I know for sure is its open and at 65 I'm turning like 27-2800K RPM ish...
