Hey Tray, Looks like were on the same maintance schedule. We both did our timing belts the same week now my upper front passenger control arm is shot too. I ordered the upper kit from ECS w/H&R sport spings, it'll be here in a couple days. I'm going to do it all at once in my driveway. I'll take photo's and give you any tips that I learn.

Don't tell me your in the market for 18" rims and tinting your tails too :D

Yes, it can be done with basic tools. I believe that I did a small write up when I did my CPP upper arms, so you may try doing a search. Try (CPP Arms, created by myself) doing that and you should be all set. I was able to do them, but I had an air compressor, impact tools, and a few basic sized open-ended wrenches. You will need a full set of sockets with everything from 13mm-19mm. Make sure you have each and every one because some sets dont have a 17 or 18mm, and these 2 sizes are key to doing this without rounding off edges.

If you would like a full write up, please let me know and Id be more then happy to type up some literature for you.

Awsome Thanks!

Ill have to do in an upcomming weekend.


LOL Trader_Reed, we'll have to warn each other is something goes wrong in the future so the other person can plan ahead. Fortunately I have already done my HR springs, Blistein sport shocks,18's a year or two ago. I havent gotten to the tail tints yet, but since your getting them Im sure somehow I will in the near future too. :D
