...pressed it in ....no more play anymore...it should work great with the poly bushings already installed this past summer.

Hi, new to the forums here but recently bought a 88 se last Thursday and love it but have a bit of a decision. The motor has 180k on it and was thinking of getting a vg33e with 86k miles for 300. I was going to see what yall thought of the idea and I for sure want to boost but just don't know what engine I should go with.

i need to swap the pinion flange so i can bolt up this rear...getting the nut removed and using a bearing/flange remover tool helps.

Build is coming along nicely! If you don't mind, I'd like the part numbers for the sway bar bushings.

...installed the MMR delrin diff bushing, finned rear cover and rear sway bar bushing...the MMR diff bushing helped remove a little camber in the back.

...i wanted to do a string alignment after watching/reading how to set up the garage floor to level...i used a bubble level and a digital version....my floor is pitched in both directions because its a pretty wide two car garage....i would of never guessed it had so much pitch.

i initially set up using ceramic tile for the front but switched to vinyl tiles.

....moved the car back in on the leveled locations....rechecked with car on tiles, as good as its gonna get.

....i set up lines on jack stands and set line distance from each wheel center hub to account for the difference in front to rear track measurements...the SE cars are 25mm wider in the rear so i halved it and used 12.5mm per side correction
...also adjust line height to pass the center point of front to rear hubs....i measured out from the front 100mm and rear 87.5mm using a Harbor Freight depth caliper...check recheck and re-recheck everything,  once its perfect take depth readings from the front and rear of each rim to line and record....subtract and get toe -in/out measurement.
...my results showed the front left toe- out .58mm so i adjusted to .75 toe-in
...front right showed 1.63 toe-out which was adjusted to .68 toe-in.
...my left rear results showed 1.58mm toe-d in which i readjusted to 1.29mm toe-in
...my right rear results showed 3.00mm toe-in which i readjusted to 1.81mm toe-in
