I'm going to bring my tools so if anyone needs anything done (like speaker install), i can help out as well as others. No, i don't think we can do thrust arm bushings though i'm buying a portable bushing removal kit.
I need to install my smoked Celis so if anyone would like to give me a hand with that, i'd appreciate it since it requires some drillin'.


and for food... what's the word on that? burgers... drinks... dogs (no.. not woofie, this isn't china! :D)...

just wanted to get a running track of what might go on at the meet then just staring at old people doing laps around the park.

OK.. i'm going to get the tool to do it without a press, you know, the old school bar and cap way. i don't think we can be doing thrust arms at the park but on someone's driveway, we can so i think we can do that another day. this weekend would be TOO hot to do that... hell, i might not even do my Hellas, depending how hot it gets.

Dan--- Should i get the poly urethane bushings which are like $50 each from BAVAUTO or get the stock ones for $49/pair?? I dont want a harsh ride if the poly's will do that. At the same time, i dont wanna replace the stocks every 30k either.
Are the poly urethane bushings really that harsh on the quality of the ride/stiffness of the front end, or just barely noticable?
