overall, I'm impressed with the quality and attention to detail shown on this unit. I only hope it lasts.

ok so today I got really drunk and removed my front suspension, front upper & lower a-arms, front brakes, font sway, etc.

I'd like to replace the bushings as most of them are shot. what kind should I buy? also, as far as removing these *******, what's the best route to go?

also, ALL of the boots on the ball joints are split. I removed all them using my puller. where can I find replacements?

Energy set from 949. I'm pretty satisfied.

Unless you want to use a torch and make a huge goddamn mess that'll never clean up. Can't say it wasn't fun watching the arms pretty much $hit out the bushings though.

You need to quit going into rehab. Its really cutting into your car building. This car should have been on the track a month ago!
