Well, turned out I just needed more space to turn the breaker bar - got the car up on a lift and 20 min later all the bolts were free. Getting everything back on was a PITA, but its done. Now I just need an alignment.
Any recommendations for a shop that will know what to do with the new camber bushings?
Nice work with the cheater.
The camber bushing, well, you have to explain it to them. And explain how to adjust/rotate them...it's very hard to rotate with the car weighted. The best way is to lift the weight of the car off..adjust, then rest back down. It's a head scratcher for a little bit, for any new guy.
If you want it done right, and your car is in Denver (or can be) Firestone on 104th and Sheridan. Ask for Richard (a young Korean punk, tuner type) to work on the car. You van tell them Chris recommended them/him even. Rich knows how to set a car up and will even set to your specified settings. They are open on both Saturday and Sunday.
I buy their lifetime alignment, $175.00 and it's a one time fee. Then they don't mind if I swap parts and come back 4 times a year. For years and years.
If you are not already aware, the Gen3 XT needs some ballast in the rear. The rear toe moves toward positive when the suspension squats under load. make sure you have a full tank of fuel. And most folks will put about $150-200lbs in the rear seat/cargo area. I used more, but I have the BC coilsovers and they are stiff and don't squat. If you get the alignment set with just a touch of toe-in, when weight...it still gets you in range with toe-in when you pull the weight out.
If you NEVER car passengers, or payload EVER...a full tank of gas will do it for you.
