    Thanks cheatah. You da man, man. I appreciate the support! Helps keep things moving forward. Been reaching some important milestones lately. Engine running, car moving, and now off to the welder for surgery this Friday. Woot Woot. 2 weeks before I get it back. BTW, your comment on the other thread about the USB drive being a "drive" a therefore legit, was pretty funny.

    And yes, the steering shaft. I've definitely come across that topic on this forum a handful of times. It's crossed my mind just recently too. Just this week I think Scotty posted the link below about replacing the shaft. Doesn't look too tough to do.

    Thanks War. Shyyt. The three of us, this thing would be a Mad Max machine. Or something from the 3 stooges. Lol

    Just dropped her off at the welder. He said it's fixable. Rear towers and rockers getting done, Boss.

    Before leaving I threw new pads on the front. Also fixed the squeal, was the ABS sensor bracket rubbing the rotor. Was rubbing on both wheels. Bad news is, I developed a brake fluid leak at a union that's next to the module, right in the armpit by the driver strut tower. Fukkk. Drove it like that anyway. Gonna take some doing to get it tightened in that spot. That fluid was just pissing all down everything on that side if the car. The brake and fuel lines were really the worst part of this rebuild, and they continue to aggravate me. Then, with ten minutes left in the drive, I felt a POP! from under the floorboard. Kept driving. Noticeable clunking and rattling now when going over stuff. Ok.... I pull over. Thinking it's the sway bar end, maybe broken subframe bolt. Don't see anything obvious so I get back in and finish the drive. Clunking the whole way. Still don't know what it was but thinking the subframe bolt broke. Maybe from over tightening it. Asked the guy to check it out when he has it on jack stands.

    Meh don't worry about it. Could even be a caliper bolt came out and it's bouncing off the rim.. you did just do pads. It's happened to me before
