bring the front down a hair more?

otherwise keep up the good work and keep beating the crap out of it. and just pony up for a new/reman PS rack

Yeah I know, I need moar loaw all around but my coilovers are maxed out. Gotta talk to Eric at Stance and have him hook me up with some short springs and helpers so I can slam the shit out of it. I wanna drop the front another 1" and maybe do 1/2" in the rear. Also I tore apart my PS pump to find that there is no flow control valve...which would explain why I have never had powersteering. Whoever I bought it from must have taken it out...bastard. I'm glad I found my problem though. On another note I popped one of my beads off the rim in the rear last night going down my driveway. Looks like I need to trim away the inner fenders so that doesn't happen anymore. Steep driveways = FAIL...needless to say I ended up getting belligerent at the bar.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

double check the steering hub, lots of those are drilled crooked and the wheel wobbles. just a heads up.

It's a MK3 Supra one. I know there's a Cressida specific Mishimoto, but I've heard too many bad things for the price to even waste my time, so I decided to nut up or shut up. They are also not as thick, so I thought I would just go with a tried and true Koyo. Only thing I am worried about is the clearance between the back of my Taurus fan to the serpentine belt. I'll probably end up having to make a custom rear shroud out of some aluminum that will lay a little flatter. It's not like I haven't had to custom fab everything else on this thing anyway

Wil do. I appreciate the heads up.

Yeah I think so. It's either that or go to the Indy 500, which I have religiously gone for the past 4 years so we will see. Theres also an event in the Chicago area late April which I wanna hit too. I now have a full time job since I graduated in December, so it's time to let loose and have some fun while I still can. Hopefully we can three wide with Keith and have some fun lol. 'Mericuh

thats what i did with my tauras fan setup just made a custom bracket for it when i got bigger rad it should fit good with the xcessive mounts in there if you want a pic of the bracket i can get you one

The fan actually comes in a few different cars, including the old Lincoln Mark VII and other versions of the Taurus. They are usually everywhere in junkyards. There are 20+ in the local junkyard with half of them having the fan.

I has mid 90ish I think altima fans on the melon with an aluminum radiator and the god damn thing can be repeatedly abused in 107* TX heat with hardly cracking the halfway mark on the cluster. Then let it idle in the same heat after said abuse and temp drops like crazy. Just another option
Maybe it's a cultural thing? I mean, we saw the British coming. India, they did not.

yeah, altima fans also fit pretty nicely. my aluminum radiator wasn't a koyo, but i'm guessing that's what those chinese children duplicated anyway...

curious to see how the taurus fans fit up, but at least with the altimas, no custom shroud necessary.

If I saw your car parked next to that Skyline, I'd be so busy looking at your car I'd probably forget there's a Skyline there.
