Also have more 16" snow tires than you can shake a stick at right now. I have 1 set of 16" Audi wheels I'd like to sell, 5x112 bolt pattern. They can come with snow tires if you want. Otherwise I can sell the wheels bare and someone else can buy snow tires. I have 2 sets of Blizzaks and 1 set of Yoko W Drives, all 205-55-16 or 215-55-16...

Well....I spent all of Saturday doing suspension. What a pain in the ass. My buddy and I did the following:

- Velocity Motorsports Rear shock mounts - These are great
- BMW Front Shock mount reinforcements
- H&R Sport Spings
- Meyle FCAB

Now to the pain in the ass. We could not budge the RTAB. We tried a bushing puller, a blow torch and two hours of wasted time. Also, we could not get a hex to fit the differential fluid plugs. Anybody have something that will help us out?

The drop looks great on the DRIVER'S side - it settled nicely. However, the passenger still looks stock. I hope we didnt mess anything up. Sigh

We tried to heat the carrier arm/control arm so that the RTAB would slide out. I have never seen so many seized bolts/nuts on a nine year old car. Thanks Denver winters.

Depending on the style of RTABs in your car, there could be a lip that would stop you from pushing the RTAB to the inside of the car (IRRC). Mine came out pretty hard, I think azzy's were easier. We just kept wrenching on them. As far as the drain plug on the diff, maybe som PB blaster?

I finally drove that track Sunday.
Your brake pads worked great, Garrett. The car slowed down every time I applied the brakes.

i'm glad you enjoyed HPR, i hear the wind was nearly as bad as when i was out there a few weeks back.

as for the brakes, i hope they lived up to your expectations... i loved 'em, and am basically running the same thing [PFC06] in my stoptechs now...
