I think forgot to mention that the charging problem ended up being the alternator itself (most likely the regulator was damaged) I still will redo the sense wire once I figure out my new found floating steering.
But ya finally got those arms back in and all tightened up and my steering still blows, been a while since I drove it last so I don't remember if it was this bad before. But it's also highly possiible that I accidentally toed the arms in by making the arms longer (Didn't count how many turns I had the old ones threaded out.) But my rack boots are also dripping so most likely my rack is wack anyways and I probably won't waste an alignment seeing if it's just toed in a lot.
In other positive news I tried the 17s out and they don't look as donk as I thought they would, The tires I tried were a little too small for my taste (visually) but I think I like them enough to get new barrels for them and run bigger tires. They currently fit like shit, allegedly they are 17x9 +20something (probably more like +30 something but I don't know shit about wheel specs) but there is no way because my 16x9+20 something fit way better and the photos below on the 17s include a spacer to clear the center bore that is too small for Nissan hubbs. I'll have to have them bored out when I have them apart. Also finally mounted the sides all previous photos where of them just sitting on the car to convince myself they look ok.
