wonder 4.0
« on: August 12, 2015, 11:44:01 PM »
wonder 4.0


delivered to M4 for 700$

disapointed tires are miss matched and pretty junk, but over all still a good deal.  lots of hacks.



tonight on the lift, i got 3 out of 4 fenders cut out tucked, and trimed, new front lift coils and shocks before a test drive around the block.


shifts and goes ok, something is slamming like hell in the rear on the littlest bumps  its got to be broken sezied rear shocks or the tank flapping around.  interior pretty good, most of the body rot will be cut off with the normal xj trims


driving to work tomorrow!

front end tore up and 4 ball joints removed.


took less than 4 minutes to remove crusty ass seized in ball joints.  i love this tool every time i get to use it.

I should bring my 3500 over and use that instead of trying to do them by hand! I've been dreading that.

for the top ball joints, do you find that it will push straight if you leave the tapered shank on it? or do you chop that off and use a piece of toob?
