I posted a DIY for the rear trailing arm bushings. Get the special tool to do it. The job is really easy and I added a lot of pictures. PM me if you can't find the thread. Replacing that bushing made my car handle like new. Serious night & day stuff.
collecting the parts as we speak.... I did see your post on them and glad I saw the part of the tool... Ill be buying one. but still having to collect stock parts like upper strut mounts all the boots and bump stops, new sway bar links since there are trashed, As of now I think i need rear bumpstops/shock boots, and the upper strut mounts...and am eyeing the konig shocks/eibach drop kit. I kinda couldnt stop myself from pulling the trigger on that Eonon radio system as it was marked down to 250 and comes with the backup cam and the OBD2 scanner..... seemed like too good a deal to pass up...... so I bought that. It's weird Im having to go to junkyards to get parts...lol Also am going to get the stock 07 CX7 wheels to put on my 3 as I apparently need tires too....... which Ill also get the rear camber links too.........
So far, replaced the jinky CAI system that was in the car with a nice one that routs behind the bumer, replaced plugs (pulled out fordmoco plugs), replace valve cover gasket, raised the car to a respectable height so im not bouncing all over the place, but since theyre junky AIR shocks it only helped a little bit.
-remove factory nav system
-trailing arm bushings
-figure out CEL (right now it seems to be that purge valve, but we'll see)
-Tires, and wheels since Im at it.
-front door lock actuators ---- speaking of, anyone know if there is a difference for those with "keyless entry" vs those that are not??? and by key less entry they mean the little remote to lock/unlock doors right?
-retint windows (tjob they did is crap)
-bose speaker replacements
If anyone has any of these parts lying around....... hit me up....lol
