Re: Rear End MAJOR

Hmm, Thats a new one on me. So about where exactly are these bolts/pins
located at. On the innerside of the tortion housing? or on the inner part
of the tortion bar. Im not to familiar with this area of the vehicle.
When I go around a corner it feels like the ass end well the body is
about to fall off of the car.

I will look around on it tomorrow i guess because I have no time. This
car has been sitting on the street for 2 weeks now and hadnt even been
moved. Im sure the city like that! hehehe. But that O ring on the
flywheel hopefully would be the right deal

I WAS WONDERING How would you get the flywheel to stop moving if you dont
have one of thoes tools to bolt to it. 
And without bending the fan/Mail pulley thing all up. Im ready to start
tare ing this thing down. Its sitting to long and im going crazy! Please
let me know and if anyone else could think of something else just so I
will have more than one thing to look for when i have it torn down. 

Thanx alot ya'll this definitley helps me save time. Cyall l8r
