Not looking to hammer it right now, just fix it. Finally got it jacked up. Using a scissor jack and then my floor jack. Funny thing is jacking the front also picked up the rear.

put in a make shift lower radiator hose from an accord hose because i dont want to pay 30 dollars for a new one. took from 10 am to 2pm to find, remove, remove from my car. and then install. hardest part was putting it back on, the whole rad support and everything is being held on by 2 bolts. not sure where the bottom bar thingy went. will figure it out tomorrow sometime. wife kinda rushed me to get to an anime convention, which other than having neat stuff to but was a waste of a drive and a day.

The suspensions bushings are shot on the passenger side. And the driver side needs a new spring. Its on lowering springs but the driver side one looks like a jumbled coil of shit. It is broken and I have no idea how its staying on. Tried to get the fronts off but the nut is rusted to the top hat guy and the Allen key hole is pretty stripped from it. Looks like immature need to cut it. Or something.

I swear to God I'm either going to sell this car or Nb weld the shit out of it

btw this is the old trunk lid.

that was the old trunk and i am retarded. it didnt seem that bad when i first test drove it and looked it over. trunk and under hood are clean as F*&$ and so is interior. couldnt really see rust because underbody coating and i figured rocker rust was like other cars. and you cant really see the springs when the car is on the ground

never had a vw

Im probably going to jb weld a lot of the rust holes in the floor, or if i get spicy i may borrow a welder and burn my retinas lol and as for the shocks im going to see if i can grab a torch to get the damned nut to un seize and do all the rest of the crap lol. so currently all thats left

1. fix rust
2. fix shocks
3. change rotor/pads
4. fix axle bushings

not exactly in that order

So replaced broken spring with civic coilover. With adjusted all the way down it still sits at stocks height lol, (car was already lowered to begin with but driver side spring was broke.) So tomorrow gonna try to take off the sleeve since it squeezed itself on. Car oz doing a gangster lean so yeah tomorrow somehow gonna try to get that stupid nut off the other shock gonna use industrial zip ties to hold the spring if I ever get the top nut off.

Got the other shock off courtesy of an electric impact. One of the lug bolt holes is stripped out... and the top of the shock is kinda eaten through. . If I could afford some racelands id just throw some on. Took me a whole 15 minutes to get it off then on.. or if anyone has some old stock parts sitting around that would be great too.

also anyone know how to do the front wheel bearing?

Front wheel bearing is cheap, but is pressed in, gotta find someone with a shop to press the old one out and the new one in.

replaced the rear brake pads today, the old ones were down to metal. one rotor is pretty marred but wife has the car that has the new caliper. so looks like whenever i do that im going to have to go rent the caliper tool again. also i think the bang sound might be from my rear shocks or shock mounts one side is shot covered in the hydraulic fluid from the shock. whoever owned this car before the guy i traded it to was planning on making it a race car i think. its got steel braided cable going to the rear calipers and bilstein HDs on it all the way around. the front ones are like 230 per shock.

also i have a ticket to the napa tool show this saturday. something came up so i cant use it.
