My 91 sedan

got it bout 8 months ago with a shit motor in it and little rust on rear filler and front filler got it from another member on here for 700ish. put new motor in it within two weeks



before i picked up some omni power coil sleeves from me-b-n-me Smile

and after i lowered it

My gold delsol wheels had an inch of belt showing on the front so i got these with very new falken tires for free so i thought why not (even tho there kinda big)

lots of random stickers just cuz i can

hit large steel slab on road due to a.d.d. and this happend

wheels that car came with 13s

striped it down to clean its all back now

EF Sedan Enthusiast

ME-B-N-ME

Wha? I got pulled... And they asked about the mirror, and I was like bitch.. It came like that from the factory.

He walked over, looked, then walked back and said. "Ooh" with a dumb fucking look. And handed me like 4 tickets xD

foooe-doooe



maybe this is why my axles been clicking  Shocked so stopped at the point where im about to drop it out so i can go with bro to store to get new axle
foooe-doooe

grrrr the ball joint will not come off on the passenger side nothings working and ended up messing up the threads on it. so question, is there any way to get the axle out the hub without removing ball joint?
foooe-doooe


all ready to come out except for the axle  Sad
~Sp33~

Sigh. You'll be back on the road in no time at this pace though  Cool
foooe-doooe

Just Gota figure out a way to break it loose i'm not worried bout the threads I can retap that buy idk how else to get out the axle
jkgonzalez3

1. Remove suspension.
2. Remove 2 14mm bolts on shock tower.
3. Pull UCA out of shock tower.
4. Bend hub out and remove axel.
5. Hope to god you removed the axel nut.

Easy way to remove them with you fucking up your ball joints.
foooe-doooe

thank you for the advice worked great. now just waiting for a buddy to get here so we can pull it

Axle doesn't look like it still in there. Youll have to clarify what your talking about exactly.

EF Sedan Enthusiast

foooe-doooe

so i get in my car and my clock says 100 soooo i look around and when i open door it turns off or if turn interior light on it does same thing wtf is wrong
EF Sedan Enthusiast

then slap the bottle caps on there and your electrical problem sounds like a fuse (best case scenario) or a bad ground (worst case scenario).
foooe-doooe

just got a radio installed in my car fixed my wiring problem and cleand interior also Smile
foooe-doooe

today was a bad day for the ef. accidentally pulled part of the driver window trim off then found a new small dent then just ten minutes ago did a 180 around a turn due to almost falling asleep deff my faulet didnt hit anything tho just sat for a second dumb founded haha but repainting trim within a week after warped tour
EF Sedan Enthusiast

foooe-doooe

this happened about two weeks ago a pop a lock driver ran a light i thus t-boned him and totaled the car. insurance payed up and i bought the car back now the question is if its fixable and if so the build back up thread
EF Sedan Enthusiast
