CBschnellI'm dropping off the trailing arms tomorrow for vapour blasting. Those damn sensors were dogs to get out - I wish I had read the Rennlist article sooner - essentially just drill and hammer them out. I then had a similar issue with the metal sleeves for the rear bush of the trailing arm - man they didn't want to shift. Rennlist to the rescue again.https://rennlist.com/forums/924-931-944-951-968-forum/830146-can-t-remove-control-arm-bushing-liners.htmlI used the hacksaw method with lots of WD40 and heat.
CBschnellThat's great info re using the earlier model bushes. I had already bought the Powerflex bushes, which are actually poly outers with a metal inner - versus the steel outer/inner and rubber middle OEM. Regardless of quality, if someone is allowed to drive these cars in 30 years, they will have an easier job replacing those bushes!Regarding PET I use it to search part numbers but how can you access current pricing without calling/emailing the OPC?

CBschnell It's all about making progress, however small, each week. I know a lot of you understand that. For whatever reason I decided to start at the bottom and get to the engine afterwards. I plan to have it back on the road for the summer, and get more miles driving it before looking at the engine.
