I did the same thing with my wheels. Bought two, and then bought the other two a few weeks later. Money is like Harry Houdini, shit disappears too fast.

I also said I dnf'd a rim so I need some more to get it back on the road.

Disassembled the diff last night to pull the shafts. Got to the seals and bearings I'll be replacing while I'm there. I think someone in the past has replaced them with saver bearings since it looks like one unit. Had to quit to sell the wheels I had. Bought them for $80 a set. Polished them. Sold them fast for 200.

found time to get off tapatalk so heres a real picture update lol.
new inner and outter tie rods


fuel pump has been replaced


a buddys little drift miata im helping him build.




finally sprayed the glass! rattle canned so its nowhere near perfect. i knew what i was getting and it came out good enough for me.






spun out and wrecked it on the first oily rain we had out here. was working an hour away when it happened. messed up and bent a rim, bent an axle shaft.


what better time for a rear end rebuild than replacing an axleshaft.






new bearings and seals


buttoned up


new goodies... have 2 installed and need to wait for rent to buy the other 2.

Fabtech coils cause a bad angle on your tie rods?
