Front end alignment and oil change.

This is a followup from a front end rebuild.
Struts
Ball Joints
LCAs
All three engine / trans mounts
subframe bushings
power steering rack

I tape measured the alignment as best as I could but it was a bit out Took my car to a shop that one of the forum members used to work at to get an alignment only to find out he was no longer there. The new guy spun out the tie rods almost all the way to get things in spec which I wasn't happy with. Guess I'll be taking it to the dealer for a redo at some point. If anyone knows a good alignment shop around Raleigh NC let me know.

Some times when replacing the rotors some hardware gets forgotten, And even a silly bolt that helps along the rim , also helps with the proper balance of the wheel, maybe I'm over thinking it and you should rotate all tires and see if it continues

I got mine detailed today.
By nature, I am a car nut....

But I rarely have the leisure of time to spend time detailing my car or spend hours cleaning it. I use Auto Detailing Toronto for detailing. I like their attitude to their work.

Default What I did Today

I've had my V50 T5 for 3 weeks now and well today i did the the following

- TCV replacement
- Upgrade of vacuum hoses to silicon

Then had to do the following as a result of snapping the hose nipple in the inlet manifold

- Remove and clean airbox and intake
- Sparkplug change seeing as everything had to come off
- Clean of the throttle body
- Clean of the intake
- Refix nipple to the intake
- Degrease the skid plate and underbody ( was pretty tidy )

Getting the airbox out is a pain and I have promised myself to change intake system at some stage even though it probably wont make a difference, just the future ease of working on the car would be worth.

Already completed

- Oil and filter change to full syn
- Radio and dash language change ( Jap import in NZ )
- Full diagnostics scan for any error codes ( none )
- Cabin air filter change ( PIA for RHD )

And to come as funds permit

- Intercooler upgrade
- Charged air system upgrade
- Intake upgrade
- CBV upgrade
- Wastegate upgrade
- Downpipe change
- Exhaust change
- Custom tune once all is in ( ARD, RiCA or similar )

Cheers have a good one
