    Re: 99 STS Project

    they are yours sub, I have another ?? when I bought the car you had to kind of slap the shifter to get it out of park and it still does this. sometimes it does not release and you need to mess around with it. I do Know it has a interlock with the brake pedal. I was just thinking someone on here might know some ideas before i pull the center counsel apart

    pup i think they're trailing arm end points (hinge point)
    maybe not trailing arm.. i forget the correct name... take a look at one of the online catalogs (compnine/gmpg/etc)

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Saw your video of it running in the other post, very nice! Looks like it's running extra-smooth

    You had mentioned all new brake lines, did you bend your own? Do you have any pictures? I want to eventually replace one of the lines that runs from the EBTCM to the rear on my car (rusted where it goes through that plastic holder under the driver's seat). Were there any complex bends, or is it all pretty straightforward?

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I do all my own bends with rolled line and a tubing bender, also flare all. I have a flaring tool that does every thing even push connect. I will take some pics tonight it was very easy with the cradle out.

    Rear suspension lower control arm adjustment link eccentrics - the links work exactly like the front tie rods except they set rear "toe in". The eccentrics you see can be loosened and rotated, thus changing the angle of the lower control arm and therefore the rear "toe".
