1,295lbs o'TQ.

Jeebus, 1,295..... they couldn't make it so it'd be an even 1,300?

Guess the guys at Freddy Funko's Tahrs n' Whills can't use that cuz they need more tq.

And rook dropping the diff just takes some time and patience... Start spraying that bolt now if your worried... The driveshaft bolts are more tricky, if you have some offset wrenches it will make life a little easier.

Your Hilti should be around 80-90 ft/lbs not too bad for some stuff with a socket adapter.
I use my Milwaukee 18 volt impact for some stuff. It's got a mini led light, cus i can't see sh** anymore.

Got new tires and TPMS sensors installed and finally got the car back out of storage even if it was only for a day.





Tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S the next generation of the PSS. So far with maybe 50 miles they seem awesome. Good grip from the little I have tried and good steering feel with but surprisingly soft in a good way. They are quiet and ride incredibly well with minimal impact noise.

I will add a review to the tire thread once I have more miles and time on them.

I have a Harbor Freight Special that delivers up to 250lbsTQ but I rarely use it. I was using it for tire/wheel changes but I found that I can do it by hand nearly as fast with a breaker, torque wr. and an old fashioned speed handle and I have less chance of galling the wheel.

Although I did just buy a new set of 17-19-21 thin wall wheel sockets with anti-gall sleeves so we'll see if I can do pit stop like wheel swaps.

Just bought a pair of Race Ramps jack ramps so now I'll eliminate my having to jack each corner and locating stands under it. Efficiency improved by 100%!

Like others have said soak the bolts all with PB blaster for a couple days before you go at it.................worst case scenario if it does not come off just use a sawzaw and a 9in metal cutting blade and cut it off....a new oem diff cover is cheap. A high torque air impact would be beneficial even though it didn't work for me.

Right on guys. Thanks for the tips. My car has been in Colorado the entirety of its ownership and life and has zero corrosion so hopefully I won't come acrosstoo many issues. My catalytic converters came right out and I saw some other people had serious problems with corrosion on the bolts up by the exhaust manifold.

Yeah, those bastards really cheaped out by not going the extra 5 pounds. I was thinking the same thing when I looked at the spec sheet.

I guess since we're roughly the same age (or at least same gen), there's something to be said. Laff....

But honestly, I don't watch any of these "adult oriented" cartoons, e.g., Simpsons, Family Guy, etc. I like to keep my intelligence un-insulted.

But I realize it's a generational thing... I had Porky Pig, Donald Duck, and Wile E. Coyote and that probably insulted my father's intelligence. Hahahahahahahaha!

Lol. Now you're offending millennials. Those cartoons are now considered to have been racist, sexist, misogynist, and homophobic.
I grew up watching them. I think I turned out just fine ;-)

My echo boomer kids are so-called "millenials". They don't watch those shows either. As a matter of fact, it was my 23 year old son who originally told me "that those shows (Simpsons, etc) insult his intelligence". I just agreed.

I've heard all the theories about those old classics and I have NONE of the traits you mentioned above. I don't quite understand the logic but whatever, some millenial psychologist had to defend his/her ( < ===see, not sexist nor mysogynist nor homophobic!) thesis that touched on the effects of 1960's cartoons and the psychological damage they perpetrated upon the baby boomers.

Now Spongebob.....

Gentlemen, you can find pro or con for anything these days, it's mostly pseudoscience. With exception, i find it hard to believe TV programming can change moral fiber. The exception being exposure time.

When i was a kid, we got 3 channels, no phones, no internet blah blah.
Point is, we were bored and motivated to seek friendship and entertainment. Also, through parenting and this^ we were able to build character and stay somewhat fit.

What scares me is all the diversion from life kids live with and i think we all agree on that.

I've watched the late teen, early 20's labor market deteriorate to lazy, phone checking dead beats and i blame technology...

CARS - now that's a worthwhile diversion, seriously.
