    Thanks.

    I started a new job 20 April
    I am gone all week traveling and I spend weekend with family so I haven't had time to work on lemon head. I'll update as I get time to wrench on it.

    I bought upper and lower control arms about 3 mos ago. I finally installed them today. Uppers took 30 mins the lowers took 2.5 hours. I didnt think i was ever going to get the two rear bolts out. They were rusted into the bushings. Car feels much tighter. No more wiggle and flex.

    How's the noise and harshness? I'd like the rear on my car to sit about 3/4" lower
