    if theyre installed correctly you shouldnt have problem.

    maybe the next time you change your oil change it or something

    Picked up tubular upper and lower control arms from the UMI booth at Carlisle yesterday. Figured I have to unbolt the lower arms to change out the K-member, so I may as well do everything at the same time.

    I recommned doing it ALL at once if your gonna go tht rounte. I took out my stock kmember and lowers still attacked and then installed the UMI Kmember and lower a arms. Its easier and less stuff to unbolt unless you dont get new hardware with the lowers.

    2002 Trans Am WS6 (M6)

    Removed oil pump, timing chain, pulleys, intake, heads, lifters, pushrods, & cam getting ready for new install of all of them. The radiator had been removed previously and it was a bigger pain than all the rest since I needed extra hands to get it out. Cleaning up engine (old gaskets, bolt holes, etc.) this week and will start install later in week or next weekend. I'm mostly recovering from all my cuts and scratches today.

    Thanks for all the compliments on the Lid guys. I did it myself. Its got a coat of primer then 5 coats of color followed by wetsanding. The graphic is a vinyl piece i got from the WS6store. And it has 4 layers of clear on it.

    Gotta do a little touch up on one of the bumper corners then Im gonna get the car cleaned up and put some pics up of the CETA mod.

    Overall it wasnt really that bad. This was my first time doing something of this scope with paint. Def a learning experience and will know better next time I do something like this.

    Since I haven't been able to post on here in a few days due to lack of power, gonna post what I did with my T/A for the past few days. Thursday, get all the debris cleaned up around her from the tornado, see that she made it thru with only minor scratches, then take her to the Bristol dragstrip and run her a few times, nothing impressive except for the perfect reaction time I got on my third run Friday: Nothing; Saturday: Drive her t-topless to a local cruise-in Today: Nothing

    Gave her the first wash of the year! Then locked the car and low and behold the headlights popped up and closed then the clacking sound of a stripped motor gear occurred! Took out the passenger side motor, rotated the gear about 180* (where it wasn't stripped) and temporary fix done!

    Gotta buy some of those brass gears so I won't have to worry about this again!

    double checked my converter to flexplate spacing and grinded my calipers a bit to help clear the spokes on my rims. I fitted the rims with regular caliper and rotors and then mounted them on later with C5 braket and the spokes touched a little, so a little grinding on the face of them helped a bit.

    Car is filthy. Haven't given it the spring bath yet. Weather in NY has been touch and go.

    On a whim i just grabbed a wet sponge and cleaned the windows then a brush and got some dust off the rims.... made me want to break out the hose and bucket and go to town.... but i didn't it was already midnight.

    Looked at her in the body shop... They tore off the whole rear end and started working on it. I got a speeding ticket yesterday in my Yukon.. Sucks.
