Should have added this to the "What did you do to your ride today? thread.


That is a long list of accomplishments. though I don`t think it was all in one day.

If you are replacing lower balljoints, what press are you going to use? This is in my plans for this summer.

I was looking at some other people posts on what they did. Probably go with that or I may enlist the help of a friend who's done it before. OR I may take it down to the shop and have them just press it in for me. Idk yet.

I replaced the transmission mount last Sunday and boy is this like a brand new car!!! There are absolutely no vibrations or shaking in the cabin any more. The first time I started the car, I thought the engine died and I was about to re-start it before I saw the oil pressure building. Engine and transmission mounts make a world of difference. I will never put up with the rough idle again.

FYI: the transmission mount was a Meyle and made in Germany.
