    Now that i've taken it apart (at least the front. man there's ton of space)... a few WTFs.

    WTF is this? 20lb metal block floating on a rubber bushing? Right under the 'bumper' on pass side.

    Did they only paint the outside of the caliper or has this been replaced? WTF?





    You can't adjust anything upfront except the toe?.. Big WTF.

    ****load of bump steer or am i bent? showing about 0.9 camber upfront... and if you can't adjust, how does the manual put the spec between 0.4 and -1.4?

    The 20 lbs cast iron block is called harmonic ballancer.It is really strange to find it on a 6 cylinder gas car and makes you think about the fuel efficiency.I have seen up to 4 different pieces up to 30 lbs altogether on a japanese 4 cyl diesels from 80s and 90s.
