^^ yeah after i had a min to think about it. its been over 100 deg all week and i have been parting out a svt and transfering all kinds of stuff which = fried brain cells.

BTW your thread was real helpful :thumbup: , i just swapped the front and rear svt brakes on my 04 zx3. damn my car stops now which is real helpful with the turbo.

I love the write up! Will help a lot as I re-attempt to replace a passenger half-shaft. I am having trouble getting the control arm ball joint to release from the knuckle. At 400+ lbs you would think it would be easy but apparently I'm doing something wrong.
Any ideas?

Well I finally got it. Ended up beating the crap out of it until it let go. Once I did that I found out that the strut was pushing put on the knucle causing it to bind the tip of the ball joint.

Got the new half-shaft in. Guess what? Still making the dang clunking/thumping noise. GGGRRR!!!!
