WH G8 in the fog

Did a suspension overhaul and took the camera with me on the shakedown run. Wound up at the RC Harris Water Treatment Plant and snapped a few pics.

- GXP FE3 struts all around
- Whiteline poly strut mounts
- BMR poly rear cradle bushing inserts
- BMR subframe connectors
- new inner/outer tie rods
- new front lower control arms
- Still need to order up sway bar endlinks on all four corners and rear brake pads.

Thanks for the kind words guys! I need an alignment BAD. Also, the lowering itch is getting really bad because of the restored front ride height from non collapsed strut mounts.

Not terrible, but I did have http://www.amazon.com/GENIUS-AT-4808-INNER-TIE-TOOL/dp/B000CED14Q inner tie rod tool to help me along. For the outers, loosen the jam nut before you take apart the knuckle. A little bit of heat from a propane torch can help too.
