@  Nateteo : (22 November 2014 - 06:21 AM) And lets be clear I have a 3.1 60deg v6 lg8 not a 3.8. Straight piped from flex all the way to a thrush weld muffler.. And it makes a legit 6 inch flame lol
@  Nateteo : (22 November 2014 - 06:15 AM) Lmao i do have my bank 2 O2 disconnected and was running shitty winnipeg mid grade.
@  voightapproved : (22 November 2014 - 02:34 AM) So on my way to AutoZone, I was driving and all of a sudden my interior lights went out along with my taillights, kept driving because I had to be there before they closed. Then all of a sudden a bang and something flew off on the passenger side. Pulled over and my impala calipers hit my wheel weights and sent them into a million pieces. Figured I could limp it home considering it wasn't that far. Kept hearing this loud clunking, Made it back with a huge clunk as I came to a stop in the middle of the driveway. Jacked it up and took the wheel off, my caliper bracket bolt was gone and my caliper pin was almost backed all the way out. My caliper chewed a nice big scrape into my wheel. Any idea how a caliper bracket bolt falls out? and Any idea where I can find a new one?
@  EnderDRM : (22 November 2014 - 12:20 AM) I've seen spark plugs mounted on the exhaust. No idea how they fired them though.
@  BlackBetty : (21 November 2014 - 06:42 AM) takes some sort of high heat or ignition at the rear tail pipes to shoot flames
@  Sapias Lupus : (21 November 2014 - 05:11 AM) That actually sounds pretty cool, but then again that could be bad lmao
@  Timmy13091 : (21 November 2014 - 03:21 AM) Lol that means it had over 800hp yo..
@  Nateteo : (21 November 2014 - 02:30 AM) Shooting* lmao
@  Nateteo : (21 November 2014 - 02:30 AM) Hey guys so my car has some how managed shooing flames two times.. Probably more the 2 to be honest.
@  BlackBetty : (19 November 2014 - 07:52 AM) so i replaced the supercharger oil recently and noticed clear liquid spots on my garage floor. anyone know where the leak may be coming from on the supercharger?
@  Marchi1 : (18 November 2014 - 06:00 PM) carl? Is that you?
@  01abboud : (15 November 2014 - 09:46 PM) man, i haven't been on here in forever
@  BlackBetty : (15 November 2014 - 07:24 AM) well ordered from ddm tuning 2 days ago order says pending fulfillment so wish me luck lol
@  Sapias Lupus : (14 November 2014 - 02:51 AM) Thanks Vytasb
@  BlackBetty : (14 November 2014 - 12:04 AM) Does anyone know if BadAzzRegalGSX does the tinted headlights with LEDS anymore? i sent him a PM but no reply yet
@  Vytasb : (13 November 2014 - 11:48 PM) The strut bar will fit. I have the same kit, but I already had a front brace, so I used the one that came with the kit on the rear towers.
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 November 2014 - 11:16 PM) Also Keith, will the front tower brace that comes with the kit fit our regals?
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 November 2014 - 11:16 PM) And yeah BlackBetty I love my rear kappas I have, had to have the front match haha.
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 November 2014 - 11:15 PM) I went ahead and bought some 52.11i kappas to match my kappa 693.11i's in the back, I'll grab the GMPP kit for Christmas or something. I've heard good news about the kit though, next priority for sure.
@  keithr182 : (13 November 2014 - 10:08 PM) Sapias, GMPP handling kit is worth the money. The sway bars make a pretty big difference at how fast you can take our cars into corners

Step 1: Loosen Dogbones with 14mm (sorry no pic of this)

Step 2: Move dogbones out of the way and reinstall bolt

Step 3: Get out some WD-40 and get to sprayin'
Posted Image

Step 4: Tighten the bolt as seen in the picture above and it should flip 90* quite easily, and this will be the final result

Ive got mine in the freezer. I hear it helps shrink the rubber a little. Plus mine are new and never used ones. Ill use lubricant also though.

edit: I used dish soap as the lube. And freezing it helped with breaking apart the small amount of glue they put in there. I had bought new ones and then found out about this trick. So, I did it to the new ones. It worked great. The engine sits still instead of flopping around so much.

This will also help if you sometimes have a "clunk" when you go from park to reverse or park to drive. The GTP was clunking. I noticed the motor was flopping in the wind. So I flipped them. The mounts were 160k miles and worn out. This cured that.

They really should say "spin the torque mount". But they also call polyurethane mounts solid. Im a Mustang guy and when i hear "solid" i think of a unit that is made from steel and has zero give.

Seems to be a good time of year for this mod. Thinking of doing the same to my '04's original mounts this weekend too.
Good luck with yours 03

Okay, I've searched high and low and cannot for the life of me find the square dog bone mounts except for stupid aftermarket poly. My passenger mount broke clean in half as it is with the stock rubber. Last thing I need is a more firm mount, but I do need new square torque strut mount bushings. Anybody have a part number or link? Not even RockAuto sells them.

I had looked into this too and you have to buy the whole assembly:

I ended up just getting the poly's from zzp.  The vibration is a noticeable at first and only at idle, but you get used to it

Welcome to 2013 bro.

Didn't even see the date.  Not like this info is outdated anyway.  Still only available in the whole assembly. Just thought I'd try to help someone
