Your axle shaft should have enough in/out movement to keep it from popping out. Maybe the c-clip on your axle is wearing out and the axle is wiggling out.

your wheel has to be hitting youre strut on bumps, it looks like its hitting it at a standstill!

The funny thing is, my car is lowered around the recomended height by tein. The larger tires make the wheel gap much lowerm making it look lowered.

Also, I am still working on this whole job thing.

Depending on what happens will factor in what I do my car. If I can't find a decent job, I may have to scrap my brake project and sell the arts I collected to pay for a paint job.

The car won't be doing any real racing soon, so if thats the case, paint will become more important.

I wasn't even paying attention to the tire. I was using the wheel lip to the fender as reference, and its way low.. haha

I will double check it when I adjust the rear pass side. I know its too low. I used the other option for measurement. The base of the strut to the spring perch.

So I was going to remove my driver side wheel to look at the axle bolt, and I forgot that I rounded out my lug nuts. Stupid tuner lugs.

So, I am going to have to figure out a way to get them off. Most likely have to remove some material till I can fit something in there to tourqe them out.

I was also planning on taking off a wheel to do a comparison. If the Brembo caliper will fit with a larger rotor, I will sell the sti rotors and get a larger 2-peice rotor when I have the cash.

If it does not, I will sell the calipers, and look for different from calipers down the road.

I put my evo 8 calipers up for sale. The project will work, but at this time I need to rethink my $$. I would rather put that $$ into restoring the car than this brembo kit. I decided to keep it simple for now.

Maybe not. There is a slight chance I will be getting a st205 brake system for the brembos.

Thanks for the link. I have some smaller ones, maybe the larger ones will fit the lugs.

I wonder if they make a make version of that tool.

So just a full trade. That's not bad. What finally made you give up the brembos?

The fact that I would have to make a bracket for the rear, and that I could not use the sti disc with the brembo caliper.

I can still use the sti rotor with the 205 caliper. I will also not need to custom make brake lines, etc. I just want better brakes, and I think the brembos will be awesome, I just need to start making things simpler on myself now.

I got the lug nuts off today. The tool posted above worked great. Didn't damage the wheels at all.

When I get caught up, I will pull the wheel off and get back on this project.
