I bought 2 rear uprights for 125 from ISellMiataParts.

Leafy do the advanced auto parts axles come with ABS rings?
Mine came with them, they're sold as abs fitment.

Heh. Well, in my case, taking it to a race car-oriented suspension shop and handing them my credit card seemed to do the trick.

My credit card limit isn't high enough for a race shop to do anything to my car.

It wasn't a race shop -- it was a shop that does lots of street cars and the occasional race car as well. I think it ran about $400.

My intention is to put mine in the press and at least try to do it myself before paying someone to do it. I think I've finally got the guys in the shop here at work convinced that even though I'm an IT guy, I know how to turn a wrench. But I'm sure that's a ways off right now.

I'm catching a cold and its killing me. Ungh, I hate this time of year

Yeah, I did that and it didn't go anywhere. I dunno how the shop got them out, maybe they just have a studlier press than I do.

Wednesday evening at work I had the slightly sore throat and it-feels-cold-but-thermometer-says-its-72 that suggested to me I was coming down with a cold, which would have royally sucked with Thunderhill on Friday. Fortunately it appears to have been an ultra mild cold that was gone almost instantly.

Yeah, got whomped. I've not had a "cold" this bad in a long time. I'm calling it a cold but it was much worse than that, I spent 3 days on the couch but I'm better now. Finally got back to work so, you know, posting on the turbo forum

Your car is telling you to man up, you don't need heating so long as it's in the high 40s.

It's more that I'd like the defroster to function, regardless of the temperature. I find that visual input is critical to a successful and enjoyable driving experience.
