    Yea man, haven’t got it all done yet. Waiting for bushing puller to show up, but not sure if that will even work, might not be enough room between the 2 bushes to get tool in there.

    Rear end mostly done, just need grease gun and an alignment, probably leave it in the air until I do the front bar.

    Had to change to Superpro end links as the Whiteline ones were too long to work with the new LCA’s. Little bit annoyed as I could’ve changed to the FE3 outer mounting swaybar with these control arms, but didn’t realise till too late. Everything looks so good back there.

    And have settled at this ride height for the street. Could go 10mm lower but I get no rub here. Pretty happy with the car now, handles amazing and haven’t got the bigger front bar in yet.

    Had the exhaust off to replace the diff bushings and found this. Only been on the car 2 years, about 1 year supercharged. 100cpi integrated ones from sureflo. Both were the same. Could’ve ended badly.

    Car got a check up on the dyno too and still healthy making good power. Bit of diff whine coming into cabin now through the harder bushings but doesn’t bother me too much, would if it was a daily.

    Good pickup, would've expected they would last alot longer than that.

    This thing sounds great, love it. The old vid of it cold starting in the garage and idling off sounded unreal.

    Yea me too, I sent photos to Sureflo via messenger that they seen and ignored. Was curious how long they would expect them to last. It’s not like they were cheap china crap.

    Yep. Unfortunately so many places are the same.
    I don’t mind paying for good quality, whatever it may be, but piss poor customer service just means I will be looking elsewhere.

    I'd like to think companies would stand by the products they sell and support customers if they encounter issues with them or their products, I mean if they did they'd do much better business building loyal customers and generate more customers through positive work of mouth.

    After the failure of your cats it's like removing the exhaust and inspecting them should be done almost as periodic maintenance.

    Spot on, I loved the design of the headers with the offset cats, but I won’t be recommending them to anyone now.

    Finally got the front bar in and links set up properly, wasn’t the easiest thing to do on the garage floor.

    I have the front set on 2nd softest and rear on softest, keen to get it out for a drive but the diff is being rebuilt by Chris loumanis, Ford 9 inch diffs of FB. Had problems with the old one since it was built, clunky and noisy, took it back straight away and they claimed it was normal, and I stupidly just accepted it. Finally had enough and getting it done right.

    This car goes from strength to strength.

    It's a great example of how to tastefully mod a VF.
