Front Body disassembly, making some progress and will give me more room to work. Removing the front fenders in anticipation of install of TIC Front Fender Braces. Removed the fenders so they brace can be welded in to maximize their effect, rather than rely solely on the bolt in method. Thanks for the great product TIC.

Look at those flimsy OEM pieces of noodle. TIC pieces just look and feel stiffer. Excited at the feel this will produce in the car.

Pulling out the trunk in preparation for the X brace.

Loosening the E Brake cables in the cabin, in preparation for pulling the rear hubs. Have to pull the rear hubs to have a spherical trailing arm mount bearing pressed into the hub. This bushing is disgustingly soft in the OEM form. Anyone that has replaced this bushing knows how important it is and how it improves handling and response. If you doubt me, take a jack under the car and jack up onder the point where the trailing arm attaches to the rear hub. You will notice just how high the jack compresses the bushing before the wheel starts moving up. This is undamped suspension travel that is the enemy of response and does not allow your suspension to be utilized to its dull potential.
