Good news! The miata is finally back home
Bad news! Rear suspension is still apparently damaged, but was driveable.

Before, I've replaced bolts, subframe and control arms and still I have a ton of toe on the side I hit the curb with. Apparently the knuckle/upright can be bent! Who knew?

There's one thing I've never done on a miata and that's separate the rear hub from the axle. Never was able to, and also never had the need.

Well, there's your problem



All fixed replaced now. If I'm still sober in a few hours, I'll put on the fueling parts.

I thought something cast, like the knuckle, would crack vs bend. but apparently not. also I now even doubt if my control arms are bent... How do I check for squareness?

Because there are so few fast turbo miata videos for us to watch that any time anyone has an over 300whp miata we continually beg for videos

I'm considering getting on the dyno next friday if I can make my car work, so there might be another 300hp miata...

Once it's confirmed we'll be begging for videos. Until then it don't matter.
