Knowledge means nothing. It's the application of that knowledge that means everything.

It's one thing to know T-Bars are shit. It's another to do something about it and swap to coilovers.

V6 and gt are the same. Cobra have the vented rotors only. Also different bracket

the inner tie rods fail after abuse, heim steering replaces that with a clevis and a heim that is much stronger and tighter. a heim on the outter end does the same thing.

a 31 spline shouldnt need any trimming. test fit first of course. mine didnt require much. just filled up the fluid and L/S additive, and with this cover it took a ton more fluid to fill her up. more space and more fluid!
