holy ship, i can't believe i pulled this off:

i wanted to swap my Eibach/Sportline kit from an 89 Celly to an 87. trouble is, the stupid stabilizer links (rear end) were fused solid on both cars. i tried everything.

so.. instead of cuttin em off and buyin a fresh set, which i can't afford right now, i took off both rear struts AND the stabilizer bar as ONE PIECE :D!

it was crazy, but not as bad as i thought it'd be. definately involved removing the gas tank and exhaust and shimmying two struts down between the rear control arms and brakes lines and other rediculously tight suqeezes...

seeing as how i gotta take a road trip this friday, i had to get busy, even if it meant in the pouring rain :D


here's some pics. fuckin eh.

it appears the dude i bought the car off of fucked up the stabilizer bar on the drivers side at some point. then it got all rusty... i dunno how how i'll straighten it.. prollie heat it and bang it... or just bang it with a hammer..

buy a new one ASAP, but for the trip, it'll do.

yeah thats what I was thinking. If it was a bitch to take out its twice or three times a bitch to put in. lol

that's MOS DEF gonna be a pain in the ass. i will take my time though. can't afford those stupid stabilizer links so this is the only way.

if life's a bitch, i'd hate to meet her mom. :|
