    Awesome. Definitely adding those to the list.

    Ordered lower rear control arm bushings and bolts - rear camber cannot be adjusted right now as it's rusted stuck. Probably gonna have it done at my local shop - they quoted $150 flat fee for the job. Small price to pay IMO to avoid a week's downtime chiseling out rusted crap and showering in PB blaster.

    Yeah. I usually don't go to shops but certain jobs are just not worth doing.

    I fully support that fee. Seems decent. I paid en exhaust shop the other day because it wasn't worth it to take the car apart for 1-2 hours when they could do it in 20min and I could have my weekend back.

    Great thread Alex. Car looks pretty good in person for her mileage, and you are continually improving her which is fantastic. Keep up the good work with her.

    FULLY support this. My camber arm bolt is stuck too. However, I would lose the balljoint and the camber arm in order to remove it cleanly. The Shop manage to break it loose so I could adjust it, but that bolt is stuck in there forever.
