Ha! So was I. I just finished reading the whole thing like a minute ago and was contemplating in a few suggestions.Austin519 said:I'm sitting here looking at my Cardomain site in my sig
You state regarding the finish of the sways...
"I'll be chroming them anyway"
Are you sure that's a good idea? Chromium plating is very brittle and inflexible and that's exactly what we DONT want on our sways...not to mention the shortend fatigue life of the actual metal.
Same page regarding the rear bar size...
"This bar is the 27mm race bar, and they try to scare you off by saying they don't warranty its use, and you need chassy reinforcement."
I think this is a typo. The front bar is the only bar measuring 27mm. The rear bar is 25mm or 1 inch.
Same page regarding "your friend"...
"I had a friend with this on his TL. He had a wreck and the only thing left of his suspension was this bar and the pieces attached to it."
The bar was fine along with the custom bushings and brackets. The endlink rods will always give up before tearing anything up underneath the body since if you look closely, the rods interior is made up of plastic. Rumour has it that people HAVE already broken their endlink rods in their CLS taking it to the extreme at the track. I can't really comment on this since you really have to be experiencing ALOT of lateral G's to be able to do that. I guess they were lucky enough to be blessed with god's greatest tire and suspension for them to be able to do so.
I drive a TLS dammit
Oh, and before I forget, I like the site, if me reading it and quoting it didnt give it away already. I am totally for do it yourselfers! And one final thought. Ever think of investing in the Helms manual? Reason why I ask is that the only thing I'd be scared of is not torqueing the nut/bolts properly. I never knew how much of a difference it made untill I started to get warped rotors because of improper lug nut torque.
