Default Rear Endlinks completed today pics inside..

Well, i was bored, so i went ahead and installed the rear endlinks...
I used my 3" air cut off on this project..made it a bit easier..
The bushing cuts through like butter
Also did a tire rotation at the same time, which then led to a good cleaning of the inner wheels themselves..wow..talk about caked on goodness!

Job well done, took it for a good drive, and i mean a GOOD drive hehe..
Handles WAY better, the *** end doesnt dive anymore...you can compare this to installing new struts..cause it sure tightens it up nicely

Looking good Matt.
Great job cleaning the inside of those wheels.
Your rear drums look identical to my Formula rears.
You will notice a bigger difference with the front end links.

Yeah i did the front ones last weekend..hehe and ofcourse being 4 wheel independent, they compliment each other perfectly.
All the shat that was inside of the wheels, well..weight reduction
I like rear drums, no brake dust, and usually they last the life of the car, unles u do alot of ebrake stops.

Yes, the drums on my Formula are still original after 28 years.

The T/A has discs and they really are better than drums but much more costly to rebuild.

Your posts are really making me want to spring for a set of those, I think theyd compliment my existing mods quite nicely, in fact I almost bought some when I bought my kit, but I was kinda financially limited at the time as it was...Ill probably end up with some at some point though.

Right now im saving for that FWI...I need to stay focused on that
