Nice, did you get the brakes as a kit or source the parts individually?

On another note. While we had the car up on the lift for the brake install. We went to go install an 034 dogbone support insert and realized that the aluminum dogbone piece i already had in there was broken lol and also my trans case is cracked.. SMH..

The car is all ready for summer, these PS4S are fucking sick, ive never had better tires than these.. 1 and 2nd still spin at WOT but 3 hooks and hauls ass its scary, just need to modulate those 2 first gears and not hit all of them 26 psi's lol.

New wheels look sick. i think those rotiforms are overrated and over played.
You should still do a regular oil change every 2 changes or something like that just to be safe.
There's really been no evidence to support that an extractor does a poorer job than a normal pan drain. If the oil is warm then any containments will be in suspension. Whether it comes out through vacuum or gravity doesn't matter.

Love the new wheels too. PS4S's are definitely a top notch tire. Not sure if you had an alignment done but zeroing out the toe can help with wheel spin...obviously a LSD will help too ;)

Thanks and yes, just had an alignment done last weekend, they did adjust the toe but would need to look at the sheet they gave me.

An LSD is just so costly and i told myself i wouldnt spend any more moneyz. Im kinda "done" with the car.. dont want to put more money into it, specially this year. Everything on it is working as it should, runs and drives great. Only thing i want is a fluidampr and a set of winter wheels.
