Exhaust hitting frame

Got my exhaust pipe replaced a few months back and I thought something was up when I heard a rattle coming from the back. To make a long story short, the tons of snow and my laziness resulted in me waiting too long to check out exactly what it was, and when I did the place that did it (Car-X :cussin...

Salvage Yards near WEst Allis/Milwaukee??

Looking for a good/friendly local salvage yard near the West Allis area (near Miller Park). I usually go to Jantz in Kenosha, but my trips down there have been less and less thanks to gas prices.

What size end links for lowered cars?

Just wondering what size endlinks everyone is using on their lowered cars. I have Sprint lowering springs (1-3/4" drop) on. I was looking at using a 2-5/8" endlink for the rear (stock size is 3-9/16"), and the same stock size for the front. Sound good? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

My CA bushings look just like yours, SHOT! I'd say change the bushings, not the whole control arm. Unless the CA itself is broken, then buy a new CA AND the bushings. If you replace teh CA with the same "squishy" POS bushings you'l probably have the same problem in a few years. GO with the urethane ...

I've had my Azenis for a couple of years now, so I would actually suggest those. Just make sure you get them off before it snows (if it does snow in your area), otherwise you will go nowhere.

Once you replaced the hose and reset the CEL did you ever take your car for emission testing? If so, did it pass or did you have to have someone with a "machine" reset the ECU so there was no history of you resetting it/the time lapse in it? Hope that made sense....
