    @bigtoepfer send yard info if it’s local and i’ll check it out. re: your hub question, look on yahoo auctions jp for hubs that fit toyotas w the same spline. i found 2 nardi/personal hubs that are SOLID fucking metal that way, and they were dirt cheap.

    ^ even w t3 you should be able to call gabe and tell him what youre doing and have the “right” combo of parts assembled. i was going to steal the megans off my x8 when i got different coilovers and find a camber plate solution that works for the x3 strut towers. youre on the right track. ill be following your build until the plug gets pulled.

    ps: t3 has been making a lot of this dumb procrastinaty shit unnecessary in the years since i started fucking w it. you can get a lot of off-the-shelf parts to make steering and suspension happen now.

    always, even if it means going out to the garage and just cleaning the accumulated shit off of it. right now i’ve got x8 front struts w x7 tophats (i think? i’ve had x3, x6 and x7 shit cobbled together at different points). ive got the x3 crossmember with an aw11 rack sitting on it, tie rods threaded into x8 ends on the knuckles (i think?). i was doing mix and match stuff looking for the right combination of parts that fit and didnt fuck up geometry in an obvious way. put a pin in it so i could do a better job measuring and getting it right. now its a bunch of different parts in piles next to the wheels. steering stuff is x7 column needing an extended shaft to meet either the aw11 or x7 rack ill end up using, talked to a guy that went the aw11 way because he claimed it didnt need power steering. same guy did an 8.8 rear too, but he sold the car and i lost contact w him. i had an x8 rear end under the car and i’d been marking the floor and rails up and seeing what i’d need to cut and weld to make it work, but i let it go to someone who needed it and the replacement is still bolted to the x8 parts car. been making things happen w the other cars more recently but i will get back to this one... eventually.

    electric would be easier? ive only driven one car w electric power steering and i hated it but it seems like it would be easy to tune it however you wanted it to feel? x8 stuff is relatively easy, i have both aw11 and x7 racks w mounts for steering rack options but havent decided which way to go. rear ends: i’ve had a complete x8 rear subframe under the car, if youre willing to cut and weld and lose some of the floor space in the rear its possible, other option is ford 8.8 rear with custom 3/4 link, weld on spring perches. explorer rear ends are cheap in yards and come w disc brakes and lsd

    Hi,, ROBBAPHENT. My Wife and I were wondering what this means we Keep seeing and hearing it from the younger crowd “OK Boomer”. Is this related to the OU Sooners? I’m am personally not A fan as I like Gordon live in the Great Republic of Texas but it seems strange that an Ozzy like yourself would follow American College Football. Anyway it was nice speaking to you again after a while. Give the wife and kiddos our love, - Chris
