What is the plan for the drive over on sat, im planning on making the dsm meet, and then going to iowa city, but i don't think 30 is gunna work for me, dealing with 80 will be bad enough. Which way is everyone else going and when?

Auto. It seems to be coming from the right rear of my car. I did notice while working on my exhaust that my sway bar could easily be rotated back and forth on an 180 degree plane, but i don't know if that is normal?

It could rotate by hand? As in up or down 180 degrees?

Yeah - that doesn't sound good. When a sway bar is on correctly - it shouldn't be very movable by hand. A little side to side movement is normal but having it rotate or swing up/down or front/back would be bad.

Any other recommendations for places to get tires taken off rims? I got some feedback on where not to take the tires, but do you guys recommend any shops that will treat me well?

Dan (racerdan) at cottman really took care of me yesterday. It was really fast, well balanced, and no scratches. Denny was the one that did the work. Mounting and balancing was the same as most places, $20 per tire.

Is anyone on here handy enough with a welder to be able to weld on my muffler? I have an old muffler from a car I used to own and I would like to put it on and give my car a little different sound!

Also can anyone on here tune a N/A 2.5? My check engine light is on and I believe it is from when I put on my long tube headers and got rid of the cats. I also wouldn't mind a few more ponies out of the thing!

Same here. Last time i went they refused to mount tires that were a different size from what they dismounted, so I removed the wheels from the car in the parking lot and took them in one by one.
I just gotta get my own tire machine :P

There is one right across the street from the airport, but idk if that's west dsm, they are kinda hard to find down there. There is also on the opposite side of 86th from miss kitty's, but its quarter only, no cards.

I can weld and would be glad to help. Have a welder at the house. The check engine is the rear O2. There is a spacer you can get for the rear O2. I believe that Andrew has one on his Legacy wagon.
