The car isn't completely settled in these pictures, after the drive it sat about a 1/2 inch lower
Love me a clean wagon, nice work

Nope, just serch in youtube. There is an easy video.

BTW... the mileage shown in the oil counter doesn´t go with the real miles you drive correct? Is this fine or smtng is wrong with mine??

Today I put on new control arms, bushings, tierods and sway-bar links. Oh and new front springs since mine were a little crusty. It was a long day.....tmr will be back springs and finish my custom USB charger port by the shifter.

Yea I figured it out and reset it. Don't qoute me since I'm not 100% sure but I don't think it's the real miles you drive.

I'd like to, but i have a tendency to over think, and over design things. It would be a never ending process.

I can say this though.. It will mount to both the bumper frame/shock mounts and the under-engine brace points. Which means there will be a steel skid plate.

Found out a massive oil leak on the front side of the Valve cover. Going to remove and re-install the gasket again. Had just done it a couple of months ago.
