I'm in the Tech Section, I feel like I've won an award. Cool.
hey glad to help everyone and I'm glad I posted this.

For who asked about the page numbers---
Page number is 26-2 for the front suspension
51-18 for the power steering assembly and 27-2 for the rear suspension. all you have to do is look at the files that are uploaded on the first post. Page numbers are there.

Recently I just got the car lowered and noticed a clanking sound about a week later... brought it back to the installer thinking it was something related to the install. Turned out it was one end links for the sway bar was missing a nut. Sways had been installed more than 15K ago. CHECK YOUR NUTS! =P

3 bolts connecting my transmission the chassis were loose by 36 ft-lbs (a couple turns). Made a horrible rattling upon accelerating and going from drive to reverse and back again... sticky this thread!!!!!
