The darn shipping to AK always adds a premium. Hope you find a second pack!

Nice going Nick!

After I pick up a set for a friend tomorrow, I'll have cleaned my town of the last pair!

Tom,

I have some official NHL pucks, autographed by a certain Flyer goalie. I wonder if this mod will make the SVX play better on the ice?

Don't do it Larry... You're car will run good all year and then stop running completely next May

Just to make sure...the suspension has to be un-loaded to do this, right? I've got a nice set of ramps sitting in the garage, and i havent found a reason to use them yet.

The ramps will do fine.
As long as you can reach it, and break the nuts loose you can do it.

So the wheels don't have to be off the ground?
If not I'll go outside and do it right now seeing as my jack was stolen.

I just did it w/o even raising the car off the ground. I could reach the nut from the side of the car, right in front of the rear wheel. (without ramps...)

I did however have to jack up the sub-frame in order to re-thread the nut.

Havent driven the car yet, so no impressions, but I'm sure the ones posted in here already are more informative then anything I could offer anyway.

edit: The nuts also broke loose relatively easy...and that's after 10 years of Wisconsin/Chicago winters.

Benn going at it for a good 40 minutes and the right one came off after some tuggin but the left was kinda soft and mushy in comparison.

How does one remove a nut that has been stripped with a crescent wrench?

I have half a mind to get some channel locks and just tear it in half.

edit:
Apparently there is a tool to use in this situation. Someone I know checking to see if they have one or if it's 80 miles away at the racetrack....

edit2: That's a big negatory. I'm outta luck tonight.
