Finished painting my summer wheels, now I'm having a buddy bury them in clear. Tires mounted balanced and on the car at the end of the day.

I bent the fork and shaft along with the pipe. It's insane how stuck it is. To bend a pickle fork like that takes some torque my friend.


Holy Christmas man.. that needs heat.. like oxy/acetylene heat. I've had suspension parts go like this before, esp back home (upstate NY) on cars/trucks that have seen many hard winters. Heat, harmonics (good whack with a hammer while hot) are your friends.

I know that is the last step needed, can't do that here in military housing though. Also tired of dealing with it, I really didn't want to take it anywhere and pay money but **** it.
Hopefully I can get the knuckles back today and I can throw everything back on early in the am tomorrow. I hate having to rely on other people for rides.

Yeah mil housing puts a serious damper on garage activities. I remember those days.. no fun.

One of these days I'm going to snag up a small oxy/acetylene setup and a small 110v mig welder... but owning my home makes it a little easier to start going all "mad scientist" on stuff in my garage

Bought the TIC ball joint removal tool...after struggling for many hours and bending/breaking all types stuff...removed the ball joints effortlessly. I've used it - twice. PM me and I'll loan it to you, you pay for ship.

I'll post up everything as well as a video later today. I can't believe how much of a market Hella has simply because of their name. If you combined Hellas with these horns you'd have a massive amount of sound due to the fact that all 4 horns would be at different frequencies lol.

Loved it for helping me stop quickly and safely swerve to avoid the guy who came into my lane from the opposing direction. His car and the mailbox he took out didn't fare so well.

It will be getting a nice washing this weekend as a thank you.

I looked at it sitting sadly in the garage, wishing it would put itself back together.
