    2G prothane suspension and handling questions

    Tire pressure can make a difference.I forgot to ask, did you preload suspension prior to final torque on bolts?I definitely think the lack of outer shell on the previous bushing, i did notice that too on the rear Toe arm. Those arms are already so weak. Thats why some folks swapped in some...

    Its to the point now, pictures would be great. Take a nice clear picture of each side of the rear suspension with the wheel off if you can. Then a nice under shot. From afar, then closer, then under the car.I want to see bushings shape, sway bar, upper A arms. Trailing arms bushings. As well...

    Use a volt meter and/or get the battery tested. Battery is probably roasted.

    2G Car can’t hit an idle, crackles and dies.

    You should not have a T in your vacuum hose to your AFPR. Your brake booster line looks like its barely on. Fix that.Your boost gauge line is also messed up clearly. Redo the lines.Also, what throttle cable are you using? That looks incorrect. The mounting. The length. It looks wrong.

    2G Intake Hoses

    The EGR? Not needed. Need a block off plate if removing it entirely.The other spots, looks like a hose is too big. And one nipple doesn't have anything on it. Which is a vacuum leak. In this case, a boost leak if the black object in the picture is the new intake manifold.

    2G I think my Trans just blew.

    If it is actually STUCK in 1st gear, and still won't climb above 2k rpms & 15 mph, then it would seem this is more engine / ecu related. More than trans.You also mentioned it would slip in 3rd and 4th?? That's no good. 3rd is the strongest gear in an auto, as far as torque capacity...

    2G Wont go into 4th gear, please help!
