It has some balls though, much more torque then my AU V8 feels like.

If you're going to go black, just make sure you use the same black as anywhere else. Having different colours even though it is still black could look tacky.


good call

a little investigating has led me to belive its the sway bar link looks easy enough to replace, do you guys reccomend doing both, were abouts could i find reasonable priced links.
this is all very good if it is the link, i may well be wrong and your all laughing at me rite now

:lol:
