    Re: Unsprung Weight Reduction: 09-13 Forged Aluminum Knuckle?

    Update: things are progressing very slowly because I started with the rear hubs. Got stuck trying to figure out how to torque the new SKF hubs down to 118 ft-lbs for a while (advice: big bench vise), and then stuck trying to get the parking brake cable back on (advice: pull the cable out past the spring, then prevent it from getting sucked back into the car by clamping it with a Vise Grip).

    The night is still young, but I have to get up early. We'll see how late I want to stay up.

    Edit: not going to stay up all night cutting out stock bushings from V2 UCAs. Next weekend. In the past 2 hours, it's snowed 1.5 inches outside.

    It snowed 3 inches yesterday. I haven't been able to work on it. Fortunately, the forecast for this week looks promising--temperatures in the 40's.

    I wish dust was my greatest enemy. Here we have snow, rocks, salt, and pollen (enough to turn your car a yellow haze) in addition to dust.

    So your trigger finger got a little itchy? How close are you to installation?
