I have a clunk in the right front. Though it was a sticky brake caliper but beginning to think it is the suspension. Moving to Hillsboro OR on Saturday so no time for repairs. But Once settled in I must find a competent shop who can put it up in the air and diagnose the problem. I will probably change the front calipers as the right front is nearly seized and add new set of Mtech extreme pads as well.

Adding to the bad times...I just found out my rear bushings are shot as the reason my subframes/alignment is not looking right.

Timing is everything...

So, with all these car problems, I guess it's not a good time to try set up a drive for November, eh?

But, just in case you're interested...how about Nov 22, Sunday (I'm working every other Sat/Sun in November).

Hey Tim,

I will be at Infineon Raceway flogging the S2000 for 2.5 hours that day. But I bet you could get John out there with you.

Hey Morg,

Call my guy Steve Sauls at Makestar Honda/Acura in Temecula at
951-699-9921 he will do right by you. If you need to have it towed give me a shout and we can work something out.

I understand how you must feel Morg I can recall you saying that who ever had her before you just did not show her the love you do.

I just got polyurethane bushings done this week. Also, had a client weld reinforcements onto my rear subframe. Gotta love the purple bushings...lol

My new Mintex Extreme pads showed up yesterday and calipers showed up today. If it doesn't rain Friday I'll install them.

Libero USA has used engines imported from japan at 30k miles or so. I pocked up a motor for my supra from them before I totaled it. Actually put it in my dads supra and it's still running great. Located in la area.

Kwatanabe sells japan export motors located in San Diego. Prices are stepper but they can also install.

Both places give warranties on there motors.. Good luck and let me know how much it runs..
