    Camry RTABs will definitely fix that, when I first sent it around a corner after installation I thought someone had secretly installed a LSD. The RTAB tool is easy to come by, the hard part is sanding them down and trying to center them.

    You can easily make an Rtab tool out of scrap metal. I made one similar to this.

    Definitely do the spherical RTABs. Homie ain't lying when he says it improves grip that much. My current setup with rubber RTABs+limiters and an ACTUAL LSD has less grip than the Camry rtabearings and open diff.

    hrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrngggggggghhhhhhhhh

    ... ok

    also it looks like I can just use a balljoint press, which is free to rent at Canadian Tire. I unfortunately have very limited access to my school's machine shop now that I'm about to graduate (although one of the machinists was nice enough to waterjet me those chassis rail reinforcement plates for my hitch)

    Edit: Ooooooooh and dropping the RTABs would give me the opportunity of fixing yet again, more rust! yaaaaaaaaaay

    Washed the car and sent my ZHP to start a journey with the new owner.

    I'll try to hold on to mine as long as I can drive a three pedal. I will have to start saving a bunch of $$$ to have the ZHP do a complete close to factory paint job. Will probably cost $7K.....

    And after will have to do a Clear Bra for the front.

    Anyone know where I can find OEM fog inserts for the zhp bumper? Canít seem to find anything anywhere except for eBay ones. Mine is missing completely.
    Read something briefly about fluted/non fluted? And that the OEM m3 fog covers fit ours?

    Also, Iím still hunting for warm interior LEDs and that has been a total pain. They pretty much donít exist. Iím not a big fan of the super white almost blue hinted LEDs.

    Lastly, a progress pic of the new interior I finally sourced! Thanks all for the consistent advice.

    The M3 and M-Tech 2 (ZHP) use the same fog surrounds.

    These should be the right ones. Doing anything on a phone is a PITA so I'll leave it to someone else to chime in if I'm wrong as I won't verify it right now.

    I know, right? I hate the cold look of every LED kit on the market. I'm going to be putting together my own kit one of these days as my dome light burned out on the touring.

    Are you talking about the foglight trim?

    Fluted versus non-fluted refers to the actual foglight lens. The non-fluted lens is clear, whereas the fluted lens has the vertical lines on it.

    These are the part numbers for the trim:
    Right side: 51117893068
    Left side: 51117893067

    ECStuning has them among other stores.

    edit: Yep, those part numbers above look right. I ordered and installed the right side one myself recently.

    If you manage to put one together with the same kelvin temperature at like 3200k, sign me up right away!! I almost was able to source a set from eBay that were all warm but the temperatures were all different so I ended up not doing it. Found some at 3200k, found some at 4000k and 4500k. Couldn’t find everything at 3200k. Such a pain! I’ve checked AliExpress, eBay, and all other suppliers through google searches.

    And thanks for the input.

    Thanks so much for the info. Appreciate this. Gonna go ahead and grab the trim then. My lenses are fine, they are the clear ones.

    Wait so maybe I’m tripping, but isn’t there some sort of insert that goes on the sides of the actual fog light? Mine is empty and has some wires exposed from a certain angle.
