Received a new to me x2 swaybars from @freezer16801

The *19mm tried to escape, but the 22mm Whiteline kept it from doing so. :wink2:

Well drats, the guy I bough this package from listed it as a 20mm RSB, but actually a 19mm. :| I already have the 19mm on the XT.

I was already planning on donating my 19mm to my brother and his wife, so at least I don't have to remove one...

Still got a good deal for both though.

Setup supplies to polish driver's headlight this morning before feeding the minions.

Got distracted.

Ended up washing/spray waxing whole car instead.

Once I put away car wash stuff. I spotted the headlight polishing stuff.

Whoops.

Probably will let the car get dirty before taking care of the light.

Installed FSB today. Prempted with fixing broken wheel stud while trying to start the process...

1hr process took five... I am watching minions, so got slowed down a tad. But still...

Broken stud, initial backwards installation, two bolts on crossmenber support plate not wanting to hold more than 80% torque values... (I torque incrementally)

Quick spin around neighborhood, all is quiet.

Except for rear hatch that squeaks over bumps. :|

Picked up a rock chip just out of my line of sight while driving... Its high enough it may not bug me, but with it on my side of the rear view mirror. It most likely will. :(

Mmmmmmm Rear hatch squeak... Gotta love going over off camber speed bumps, drainage gutters, or any other item to give the chassis a little twist produces a godly annoying squeak.

From the current primitive search engine we now have.... I've determined it is the latch mechnism on the hatch side. I can see where it is rubbing more off the center-line.

Now to find the 20 minutes, plus another 20 minutes. (1st attempt with choice words, 2nd attempt after reading more manuals) To realign it again.

Snagged a nail in the Driver Rear tire the other day.... It was perfect timing as the rotation/balance was due... And I lucked out as the nail was in the tread block and was a shorty for roofing shingles. It didn't penetrate.

Sad news, is the front left tire is feathering = bad alignment from the stealership.

Looks like I'll be trekking to West End Alignment in Gardena..... Kinda far, but they know their stuff....
