More coming!

Solid bushings for the suspension scare me. You'll need to allow for some small amount of movement in the directions other than the standard rotation of that bushing... If you want solid, figure out a good way to do a pillow-ball/heim joint there.

It is just the toe adjust side that will be solid.. I'll let everyone know how it holds up!

I don't think it will be an issue

If you dont need A/C don't put back the original HVAC. Use this instead.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Flex-a-lite-640 ... 6d&vxp=mtr

This is a Flex-a-lite Mojave heater. It is a size of a shoe box. You can hange it on the fire wall with simple brackets. They have a hardware kit to attach it to defroster ports in dash board. Very popular with professional rally car builders here and in UK. I believe JEGS has something very simular under their own house brand. Plumbs into OEM heater plumbing. Comes with a heater valve and a fan speed selector switch.

You will have more room to mount all the computers etc. on the fire wall. Very clean install.

This is Jegs house version of the heater. Even nicer, comes with brackets and much cheaper. Also has install plumbing.

You can run a cage pipe across under dash without worry about the HVAC in your way. You can attach or refabricate steering clumn better when you have a cross pipe under the dash....

Also in my rally car I don't use the valve at all. When the fan is off you feel no heat at all. Instead of a their fan speed selector I used a 3 positin switch. Off, slow, fast. That is it.
