I got this from the US a few years ago ... it was an original Denso part.

Nice one! Is it for a rev 3 turbo also? I will check the specs on mine anyway to see if it matches up

yes, mine is a rev3 turbo. All of the dimensions are provided also, so you can measure up against your old one.

Re: My GTS 3 Weeks, 5 Days ago Karma: 58
So I got to work finally replacing the old damaged cv joint on the drivers side

Cut the old one as the threads were damaged too badly to get the old nut off

Back in the hub and ready to be greased and fitted

So having ticked off that messy job, I went ahead and ignored all the fantastic advice I got about suspension and ending up getting Tein Flex Z coilovers. To be honest my mind keeps changing as to what I hope to use the car for eventually and if I do decide to get involved in track days i'm hoping the coilovers will help future proof the car in terms of set up options

The kit comes with shorter front droplinks but nothing for the rear so I picked up a new set for the rear also in the local parts shop

Got around to fitting the new coilovers, discs and pads

Old Yellowstuff pads vs new pads


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Front & Rear coilovers and discs

And finally back on the ground and still looking sorry for itself :laugh:

Just wanted to get it back on the ground so its movable as next plan is to get a steel shed placed at the side of the house where it currently is to allow me to work on it over the winter.

Looking good man!
Never seen black brake disks (apart from carbon ones)

Keep a close eye on those coilover boots. Looks like it will rub against the spring an will wear out quicker.

Got my nem D2's , currently working out how to protect the pilowballs on top and bottom and also some extra protection for the top seal of the shock itself, in case some dust finds it way in.

Cheers

Re: My GTS 2 Weeks, 3 Days ago Karma: 58
Thanks Juliuswws

The black on the discs is just a coating and will rub off completely pretty quick on the braking surface leaving them silver. It will stay on the edges and vents to help prevent corrosion.

The suspension will more than likely be coming off again once I get this shed built so I will be tidying up the boots and attaching drop links and arbs etc but just needed to get it rolling for the moment

Nice to have it back on the ground for a while though!
