everything in the spindle area gets hot and takes a bit to get loose, not likely overtightened. at least they dont use those stupid inverse star bolts any more i used to have a heck of a time getting those off the 88-90'* wbodys i had. a bunch of times i had to replace the bolt or socket and you torque it right and put never-seize on it doesnt matter after a few heat cycles its on there solid again.
ive taken my car with the bike rack on the trunk the past 5 or so days and gone bike riding with the gf. trying to get her conditioned asap so we can start doing the 20 mile rides i used to do back in the day once we're up in chicago.
progress has been good so far. got her from getting tired after about half a mile up to almost 4 miles in 5 riding days.
Got the SSEi almost all put back together, then realized the trans lines on my 03 don't fit the radiator I go from Sawgunners 2000. Instead of splicing the old lines into mine, I opted for a new radiator that should hopefully fit right. It comes in at 8AM tomorrow.
