damn, my friends wedding is tomorrow night. Wont make it no matter where it ends up.
and on a different note as an FYI, an STi steering linkage and the whiteline bugeye steering rack bushings DO NOT fit an SVX. The bushings are WAY off and not even close. The steering linkage is damn close, the lower joint at the rack fits, the length is correct, but the splines on the upper joint at the steering column are TOTALLY a different size and count. Cleaned my linkage up and tried to grease up the lower joint which was frozen as best I could. It moves freely now but is still a little stiff. If the SVX didn't have such a nice steering column (tilt, telescope, and quick lift) I would consider how to swap in a newer column.
