    In the field of suspension parts what brand would y'all pick for Control arms?
    My wagon needs them bad now, I can move the wheel and hear clunking noises.
    Turn a bit CLUNK, Elevation / Pitch change CLUNK, Roll change CLUNK.

    Uhhh I thought it did die. But the catalytic converter went out, Got the cat's hollowed out.
    CEL forever on. And just after that it decides to make the control arms worse,headliner decides to rape my face wile going down road, and my HVAC In-car fan wont kick in.

    But yea kinda needing the control arms use to it only affected it when going 80+ Now going anything over 40mph the car sways about 2inches side to side witch ever way it wants to go at the time.

    Yo SHiban, there's an RB25 with no manifolds for sale here locally for like $500. You should slap that shit in your 240 and get rid of the boat anchor in that bay.
    Man I know! When I saw your link, I was like, WHAT. That's gotta be something else to that though. Maybe a chop?

    I would get it but I just have no monies. I barely have enough for basic parts as it is. Maybe someday, the parts will be there. Check out what I did today :)

    so it was like 93 today in MN, and my City's CVPI didnt like it at all... AC sucked, and the transmission was killing itself. It was failing to shift smoothly, and the OD was absolute shit. Which, caused the CEL to go on now...

    Stop treating your CVPI like crap! Wait its not yours... Go ahead!
    Tell your city maintenance people to do a manual transmission swap.

    cause having 16-18 y/o's driving a manual CVPI, while patrolling is a great idea. A man today stalled an Audi TT right in front of me.. almost hit him

    Nah man, no catch. Engines around here are cheap. Except Honda shit, people are proud of B swaps here. $1000 for an LS swap! Haha.

    If I didn't want to spend all of my cash I would have bought that SC300 and swapped the 2JZ/5spd into the Celica, though... That's a hell of a deal for a full 2JZ swap pretty much.

    My brother totaled his 2004 jetta into brick pillar on someones fence last night, in our neighborhood. He was just going very very way to fast, and didn't make this turn like he thought he could(He always pushes it way to hard when he feels like driving fast, i've been scared for my life numerous times with him). He probably was going near 40mph, to not make that corner as bad as he did.

    Now he's left without a car, and no savings or a job.
    what a dumbass. stupidity like that is what gets people killed.

    Probably more to do with the fact that he is depressed all of the time and doesn't have much will to live, which led him to be so carelss in the first place. It's nice to see your sensitivity, but i expected nothing more from you.

    Just because he's depressed doesn't give him an excuse to make him reckless. And fuck you.

    Edited:

    Thats like this scenario:

    -guy goes on a killing spree-
    "That man is a killer! Sentence him to life!"
    "But he's depressed"
    "...all is forgiven"

    Edited:

    Oh I'm sorry we can't all be so sad about your dumbass brother because he's a reckless depressed jackass that could have easily killed other people in that wreck.

    Talking about self-righteous huh?

    How about you get your brother some help before he hurts someone.

    Edited:

    How is this funny? It's funny that I want you to get your brother some help? Or is it funny that I called out your 'self-righteousness'?

    Report and move on, report and move on...

    Sorry to hear about your brother though, whether or not it's his fault is irrelevant; he could have been hurt and that's more important than wrecking your (his) car. Still sucks though

    I've decided to replace the whole black hard surfaces palate with carbon fiber on the interior trim.

    Trust me, I'm trying to avoid the ricer look as much as possible, it'll be tastefully done.

    when i was driving to work i ended up having my tire blow out on the highway. I called my boss to let him know i was going to be late to work, but then when I changed the tire and finally got to work he just told me to go home and that i was fired.
    now i barely have any money to get a new tire let alone pay for gas, what the fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.
