Or a replacement voice "repeat/off" button by the handbrake?
Infrequently driving an s12.

S13 knuckles acquired for the s13 front suspension I still need s13 coilovers and s13 ball joints. Was thinking of going with s13 lcas but was told the s12s would work fine if I swap ball joints.

Acquired the s13 lca’s today. Slowly making progress on getting parts. Ran into an issue removing the old struts. The center nut in the strut towers just spins on the tokico adjustable screw at the top so the nut won’t come off. Anybody have any ideas on how to fix that?

Going to use the old strut? May could weld a bar to top that you can grab with a vice grip to hold in place?

No I’m not reusing it I’m doing the s13 front conversion..

I have acquired s13 LCAs I need to find some budget coil overs and s13 tierods and I can get this shit put together and get the car back on the ground.

I have just taken delivery of a 50k mile LS6 from a 2004 CTS-V oh the 12 is about to be Rowdy as fuck!

Finding front s13 suspension stuff is hard nowadays lol wtf trying to find a whole s13 set up that I can use but nobody seems to have to the stock stuff smh. So not much progress being made on that front.

I'm noticing the same! There are a few people i've spoken to for s13 parts throughout my SR install, and i just hit them up any time i need something. If they don't have it, they usually know someone who does.
You would think the OEM S13 suspension would come a dime a dozen with all the angle kits people install on them

sideways_s12

Yeah that was my hope that someone would part with the oem shit to upgrade…

Still here picked up a couple of parts for the suspension swap I think all I need now it he coilovers set? Which costs money so it’ll be a min for that lol
