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.

I took my other hid out. I was thinking about Modding my new high beam bulbs to fit my lows, but I figured it would get annoying constantly looking at yellow light instead of white(ish)

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.

Hopefully she is back on the road tomorrow night!

Tom,

Refresh our memory, we know you purchased a truck, but why is the SSEi needing a radiator?
