tirerack.com...I think they ship out of Delaware. I usually get my order next day or so Smile

Wrapped up the rear end. Went to bleed the brakes....should've went ahead and replaced the front brake cylinders, they're only 5 years old...snapped off a bleeder valve, sucks!!

I guessed right on the springplate adjustment. On the ground and sittin' purdy Smile

^^hell yeah! Thanks for the compliments

Just need to replace the front cylinders...and gotta make sure all the electricals are working.

I went on SoCal Imports website for the front cylinders, price was right but they wanted $15 'handling fee' plus shipping! My $45 order was almost $75 with shipping....oh hell no! [-X

It's a "Torque Dude" or "Torque Meister"....you can bust off that hub with a 3/8 ratchet. I couldn't get it with a 3/4" breaker bar on a socket and about 2 feet of pipe...but that tool got it off with a 3/8 ratchet. Definately a good tool to have.
