I did biggest pita first,master/booster.then went on to do rear,drums off axles out backing plates gone,all new brakelines,and cables,parking brake fix.New rims tires.This weekend I did front. Today driving to work and back car seems off.It's like the steering is too easy? I NEEDED A LITTLE AIR IN TIRES LIKE 10 PSI.AND I ADJUSTED TO ADJUST TO CENTER STEER ING WHEEL,ok cra p cap lock on.Anywho has anyone got that same feeling or I'm I just nuck IN futs?

You'll have to get the toe set properly. If you are toed out just a little bit, he steering will feel very loose.

Spin the tie rods in a turn and see if that helps, but go get an alignment.

Ditto to what was said above. Excessive toe out will make the steering very sensitive to movements away from center.

You'll probably need a full alignment as camber probably also changed when you installed the 5 lug spindles.

Are you now, or possibly in the future, planning on converting to coil-overs? If yes, then Maximum Motorsport for sure, if no, then any brand name should be good to go, just avoid no name ebay specials.

If you think coilovers are in your future then go with CC plates fabricated in steel,NOT aluminum.
Also,if Maximum Motorsports cc plates are not in your budget then save a bit longer and wait until they show up on their "Deal of the Day" sale that's happening this time of the year.

God luck

Got team z c.c. Plates waiting to go on.In the meanwhile, I've had a mushy pedal all week lomg,on my days off I bled the cra p outta them brakes,and bled and bled,still mushy pedal.no leaks so I pulled master and replaced with new one,bled again and wow! Hit the brakes and almost went threw the windshield.But now the brakes stick when I put little pressure on them,when I hit the pedal it releases.hard braking no issues.both front and rear stick and brake light stays on.WTF? I ADJUSTED brake booster rod according to mm .site. I had no sticking before master change,I'm stumped,help.
