Long story short, the Treehouse racing CABs died after only 4 months of use. The bushing needs to deflect or else it just kinda eats away at the insides. Went back to stock rubber. Yay waste of money.

This clunk does NOT...

Story time: My E46 is like a woman (she's mad at me)

So my story starts off with me setting my E46 in the drive way because I forgot to get emissions done. Registration died and I didn't feel like tickets so I parked her and drove other cars in the...

I was figuring diffs would be more than $300 but I was hoping for <$1k for the unit itself. Back lash and pinion depth aren't too hard to set if you have the tools.

Yay isn't snowing... hope my...

LSD options

For snow driving, I always prefer an LSD. I just recently decided to start looking into a diff for my E46.

The lower intake boot looks fine to me. The upper one has a slight tear where the brake booster hose meets it but it isn't cutting all the way through.
