      Yeah, it just boils down to bad timing.

      You could just do what I did and take the entire thing apart, take it to a powder coater and have them chemical strip it then coat it. It was cheap and looks amazing.

      Hell yeah! Thanks man.. have something in the works which I am holding off on revealing for now, which is why I needed another order of these.And we escaped CA about three months ago and have been so happy in CO hahaha!
    • Dusty Landrum
      Just placed my order for (2) spider kits, carrier bearing and lobro rebuild kit lol. Hopefully you still have them!

      AND the rear lower rockers. Check those out for sure. It will spread from there really bad into the trailing arm area and then to frame.

      So in my line of work, corrosion and rust are placed in different tables even though they are similar in nature. Like someone mentioned earlier, dissimilar metal corrosion will cause severe corrosion but not pitting or scoring all the time.. it...
    • Dusty Landrum
      I would agree it looks like the result of galvanic corrosion. In this case the aluminum is higher on the galvanic series and would act as the anode, so the steel threads should still look decent, but the aluminum would not.
    • Dusty Landrum
      I agree, to me this appears to be very bad corrosion. Maybe they used opposing metals that do not interact well and its really bad. You could try something like CLR and soak it in it or just keep it wet. Maybe that would help break up and eat...

      You might want to read the 1G and 2G DSM Technical Manuals to get a fast start. Asking what a timing belt is a huge red flag to us that your going to need more than the typical assistance...

      If you've never done an inner tie rod do you yourself a favor and get the special tool. I rented it.
    • Dusty Landrum
      So I myself have went through the tedious process of restoring the bottom/front/rear and wheel wells on my GSX, and it is extremely time consuming and expensive. There is absolutely no way you are going to be acid dipping the frame and this is...
    • Dusty Landrum
      Hold up...you want to completely disassemble the car and completely dip it? I'm sorry.....I'm not a politically correct kind of person but you're asking if wheels fit but you're planning this level of project? That is hundreds and hundreds of...

      Again, I am not super familiar with troubleshooting suspension, but the first video to me REALLY looks like a shot bearing since it wobbles up and down and sometimes wobbling without the tie rod even moving. Noticed in the second video it might...

      I am DEF no suspension pro, but for some reason to me that looks as if the hub bearing is shot.
