Think you can get away with it. I assume your wheels are lug centric so as long as you have acorn lugs and it bites enough. If it doesnt thread in deep enough, then move to extended studs.

There's a huge debate thread on here about the amount of threads on a standard lug are needed for 100% of the torque potential. Good read if your looking into stock vs extended. Couple of funny stories about wheels falling off too.

I would not trust lug centricity. It's too easy to make everything properly hub centric to not do it.

And from my research, the stock studs are good for a 3mm spacer. Anything bigger and you'll either want longer studs or a spacer with studs built into it.

Personally, biggest spacer I would run is 5mm or less...if I were to run a higher one it woukd definitely be lug/hub centric. Idk how far you would get on oem bolts. Highest I've seen is 8mm.

Yeah it was a local sale, she came right to my place and didn't contest the price. She though she got a deal.

Anyone? I'm sure it involves taking off the door card and removing a few 10mm, but I'd rather know exactly what to do before dismantling everything.

Haha yep I got a custom 2.5" catback with magnaflow muffler and magnaflow resonator.

Eventually I'll do a hybrid intake then a open source tune. It should yield about 150whp

Not sure if anyone has done it before. Why you gna take em' out? Paint? If a search yeilds no results, my best bet would be to look at a parts diagram of the door assembly to know get an idea of whats holding it. Or you could just take it apart and learn as you go lol

Paint matched handles yeah. I've searched and searched.

I don't want to do some trial and error, I just want to swap them out in an hour or so.

Base models have black.

Just installed a Redline Goods leather shift boot with red stitching. It was free too.

I'd imagine the year plays a role also.

You'll have to tell me how that goes, we have a pretty similar setup now. I would love to know how an open source works with a header and CB combo.
