Rear end progress:

Rear Diff splines. This is what goes into the torque tube.



Torque tube shaft splines:


TTShaft and housing:


Differential guts:  Backlash was .008    Spec is .005-.007


Disassembled:



Some of the rear dismantled:




As promised, more pics of the front suspension(slightly dusty):








I threw out my back so that stopped my plans for this weekend. My daily driver needs some attention and money now as well. Finals are coming soon for class. Really looking forward to getting over this milestone of suspension and finally able to move on to interior/engine bay paint.

My back healed incredibly fast. I am done with my sophomore year of college so that gives me more time to work on the car. DD needs attention but isn't getting it. Here is why: Sorry for some of the pics. I had to make due with the camera phone tonight.

Rear diff guts:




Rear parts laid out and ready for chassis saver:




Dad and I working on the cars:




Every hard line was cleaned and painted. I have fallen in love with this engine paint.












Important rear bolts being coated after being cleaned:




How it all sits now waiting for me to assemble it tomorrow:











I'll try to get some better pics tomorrow. All kinds of new stuff to put into this section of the car. After rear end assembly the next step is spraying primer on the entire car, then engine bay and interior paint.

More progress, better pics as promised:







Brand new wheel bearings and seals. I got the from Tim (Ulrichwolf). Stockers have one side of the bearing open. These are lubed for life (verified by Tim) and are sealed on both sides thus only a thin film of grease is needed to keep corrosion out of the housing:













Underbody shot for the hell of it smile.gif



Putting the differential back together. New OEM seals, drain, plug, and vent:

















Inner CV of the axle shaft (Note: inner CV can NOT be taken apart - only the outside):



Rear suspension assembly:

I used a standard size grade 8 bolt that was longer than stock for the sway bar links. Original was too short with the energy suspension bushings from autozone and I couldn't find a metric one long enough. New OEM sway bar D bushings though.





And apparently I was able to get another "last one on planet earth omg" hood insulator from mitsu:

Do not EVER buy Duplicolor caliper paint. Worst paint product I have ever used. It came right off. I ordered G2 paint kit and things went much better.






Notice how they weren't really a deep color blue like advertised? Yeah I did to and I was kinda ticked. Four hours later and check it out:



The same fijish blue color that I saw from other online pics of this G2 "Blue". Now I'm a happy camper.

Lots of misc. painting/cleaning/sandblasting today:




More to come tomorrow.

Lots more done.

Front caliper dust boot installation:


Front calipers rebuilt:



Rear caliper:


Rear caliper parts:


You can see where the spindle for the parking break goes through to screw into the piston:


Rear caliper assembled:


You need a press to press down the spring washers on the spindle in order to insert a metal key between the top of the spindle and the rod that is attached to the parking break cable. We had to make a special tool to press on the washers as well as allowing the rod to go through. Remember, the return spring goes on while the spring washers are compressed and the key is being installed, not after.



%100 finished rear end including fluid:








Jolyrgr's stainless steel lines:




Here is a better picture of the front suspension/steering:


Car has been primered:

If you ever are repainting the car and need an easy way to remove the chip guards then get this stuff:


Here it is in action:




Next big step is interior paint.
