Well, I need to address a potential leak somewhere that just popped up today, but besides that the major works I'm adding to my sig. After that, I think I'll be content.

So what was the total damage (bill)?

Cost of parts and hours of labor.

Just to get an idea for all us other tuners drueling over rear disc swap.
Can\'t afford a high priced performance car?  Then build one!

Oh jeze. I didn't even think about counting after a certain point. Well, I splurged for a few things, like just taking the calipers to PepBoys and using them as a deposit for rebuilt ones. That set me back about 75 per caliper. R1 concepts (check teamzx2's vendor list) has pads and rotors for awesome prices, and Napa has the e-brake cables for much less than Rob. I need to check over my figures.  :?

Oh and swearing, lots of swearing for the labor. Depends if there is a mom or maternal figure nearby and whatever rates she charges via the swear jar.

HAHAHAHA!!! Thats classic!

I do have a question for you. How the hell did you break the lateral arm bolts loose from the damn spindle???? Did you use powertools or hand-tools?

My dad also used this tool, not sure what its called, I want to say its a center punch. But it doesn't have a sharp tip and the one he had just so happened to be the exact diameter of the bolt so it could fit into the shafts. Once we got it moving I just had at it with a hammer and there ya go.

any tool will help. I know mine is probably rusted in solid.
