I think I got the good radiator... Hard to tell as of this moment. And I patched up the snorkel in the only spot I didn't seal so if it still leaks I have no clue how it is getting in. Leaving my drain hole open though just in case.

^ +2 1/4" tube will take 10x more of a beating than any other lift. And i wouldnt cut that C out of the tube to get to the bolt. It weakens the block and is more work. Just me though. I used a box end ratchet to tighten mine up. 

 

 

Oh and BTY this is a great build guy! you just need a EJ22 in her! but when you do Let me know when you get ready to do one, i have accuses to cheaper and higher quality adapter plates and can tare down your harness if your not going to do it. Then youll have to come down to Oregon and wheel with me and my crew

 

Sorry to see the quality of SJR's rear diff plate drop has gone down.. I could have made that for you for free.... 

 

This was a couple years ago, but he only had me pay 20$ shipped for the one that is advertised...

She kept referring to it as my battlewagon because of the sticker i have on the back. reddit.com/r/battlewagon is where that is from. I don't plan on owning much else other than old schools now that I'm into them they're great! and thanks man means a lot!

So the spacers I got in the mail turned out to be 1" rather than the 2" I expected. So i figured why not and threw them on. I like it!

Very Kindly, let me ask you...

 

Why not change the Rims to wider specs, instead of using Spacers?

 

Kind Regards.

thanks. Yeah I get a lot of people turning their heads at school, looking at the kid with mismatched body panels, and the car that makes funny noises. But I love it! no better feeling than walking out to a car you paid for, you built, and when something goes wrong, you know where it is. I believe I'm having more fun with it than the kids at my school who's parents buy them BMW's and they put wheels and coils on it and call it "Built" but hey to each their own.

Off topic from my build thread but it looks like I'll be attending Washington State University in the fall of 2014! Go cougs. College should be fun but I'm going to miss my car. Not taking it for the first year so I don't have to bum people rides and such.

Hate to bother you. Although the picture was helpful, if you have time can you post actual measurements of that diff plate? Also do the spacers toward the front of the diff get tightened down or do they stay loose? Thank you!
