    update...kind of.
    over the past 5 months of datalogging and terrible roads, the passanger control arm balljoint is finished. No damage to the cavalier so this month im replacing the control arms with upgraded balljoints and poly bushings. I found a legit way to hook up my emergency brake cables and pulling the valve cover to check for build up and replacing the timing chain tensioner. As everything is going on ill post pictures.
    On a good note I picked up a 91 civic hatch for a dd so the cavy can get love and running like a top again.

    Those stock ball joints never seem to last long. Same for the front OE hub assemblys.

    Nothing is difficult; some things just take more time.

    So a little update, been a strange, weird, dark while.
    A few months back my bliz struts gave out and got rusty and needing new front struts had to grab some monroe for 200. Now my front sits higher and looks weird to me, need to pick up some prolines to fix that.
    More recently while on training missions and gun equals my inspection/registration was up in NY. Now im waiting on my title paperwork so I can get VA tags. Until the paperwork gets here the cavy is sitting in my carport waiting to win again. Not being able to go out and cruise and work on my newest tune is lame.
