Kaleb stopped by on Friday and helped me get the rear control arms installed. In the push to get the car on the road, I forgot to get a picture of them installed, but I will get one when I take the wheels off to make sure the bolts have stayed properly torqued.

Here's a comparison between the stock stamped parts and the Henious milled aluminum ones:

I want to see a big brake kit on this thing! 13" rotors or bust!

Lol. The brakes do look small in that picture, but they really are very good. For the price of a good performance brake rotor, I can replace the rotors and pads with OEM parts and have 100 bucks left over, haha.

CopRod has been getting some attention that has been long overdue. The biggest model year issue has been fixed. The intake manifold, being made entirely out of plastic is famous for cracking at the front coolant crossover. The fix is to install a revised manifold that has the coolant crossover made from aluminum. So, I budgeted a couple days for the job but managed to get it done in 9 hours.

It's a good feeling knowing that my intake isn't going to explode while I'm driving down the road! Anyway, I should be getting a new set of rear coil springs in the mail tomorrow. They should fix my sagging rear end issues and give the car a nice stance.

Installed a set of Moog cargo coil rear springs as a way to fix the sagging rear end of the car without breaking the bank. I am loving the new stance!

I've got another small project in the works for this thing. I bought a Ford Fusion center console from eBay a couple days ago. It'll be nice to have an actual, factory looking center console in my car, lol. I'll post an update with pictures when I get it and its installed.
