New Brembo rotors / Stoptech pads all around
New control arms
New Conti DWS's
Day 2 of 5 day weekend... thanks flu!

Not in my preferred order... had the tires mounted, got it on the alignment rack only to find out the control arm bushings were shot. She sat in the garage most of the week, all back together now though! Torn between selling this summer and getting something new, and... not.

Lol at the 6 weeks of no drinking questions. It's something I started doing about 5 years ago... Towards the end of the Ski Season here at Sun Valley, we're just partying SO HARD and I've generally put on an extra 10lbs over the winter, so after the ski season ends i just stop drinking until memorial day. It's a great way to lose an extra few pounds quickly and it helps me get into summer shape, then it's game on again :D Plus, mud or slack season here can be a real downer so it keeps me out of the bars and being productive :thumbup:

Sounds like a good idea but I gotta stay local this weekend. Headed out VERY early Sunday.

I'll definitely check this drive out in the coming weeks though.

Do you know of any other close drives near Bellingham (besides Chuckanut & going up to Mt Baker)?

Thought about going up to Semiahmoo but there wasn't much there when I went last.

I know I was messing around with one in Best Buy the other day and my corporate account at Staples can get me one for 15% off a killer discount as is. I'll have it for $500 shipped next day.

Zack was trying to force me into the T3I but they are essentially the same thing the T3I has a swivel and I can't justify paying $100 more for just a swivel.
