Hey im going out to my mothers house today and picking up my gts and bringing it to my new house, is there anyway i can drive it around 10 miles on a windy backroad without the passenger endlink on?

and how do you know if you have the clutch master cylinder adjusted right (where it connects to the peddle) Please reply quickly going out there soon.

Do you mean the endlink for the sway bar? If that's it, I don't see any reason why not. As for the clutch part, if it will shift fine, then you should be able to get there. After you get there you need to look in a manual about clutch pedal travel and it should tell you how to adjust correctly.

You should be OK driving without an endlink, but I wouldn't recommend it as you will have funky handling without a sway bar on one side and I'm sure there are additional stresses placed on other components.

For the master, just bleed the crap out of it. Start by just pumping the clutch pedal a bunch as someone keeps the resevoir full. Do this until clean fluid comes out with no bubbles. Then bleed as normal.

I've personally driven my st165 w/o endlinks.. keep in mind that when you don't have the endlink you're not using the sway bar at all... how does it feel? Feels like you're going to tip over everytime...
