Well car is down..

So i need a rack and pinion steering knuckle bushing, a wheel bearing, and dun dun dun...motor rebuilt. so thats about 2000 worth of parts and labor.


its still drivable. just eats oil and lightly taps(bearings)

I need to know when is the garage night happen so i can at least fix the steering knuckle bushing and wheel bearing.

Turning a daily driver into a racer is hard work. with no bread you cant do it....so do what i do... plant seeds.

Sounds like its time for a 347. I say fix the wheel bearing now, and do the steering stuff when you have the engine out of the car. It will be much easier with the engine out of the way.

Well I don't know about rebuilding a motor at my place either, but hopefully soon we can have it at my place.

I just got the headers bolted up last night and the sub frame. Just need to torque the subframe and the engines mount so I can start putting the trans back in the car. I might actually get to drive the damn car this summer. lol

steering knuckle bushing, a wheel bearing

that is more feasable to take care of at someone's house.
