    • Thank you for your help. I'll take the GR2. I was thinking of changing only the rear ones but finally I'll change front too.   I tried to find a similar product in France but Kyb is sold 2 or 3 times the price compared to USA. Consequently even if I include a potential custom fee, it remains cheaper to buy in USA. Especially with rockauto because shipping isn't very expensive.
    • So, I am starting a B-Sedan replica car build. My history, I raced in SCCA SF region Regionals and Nationals 1982-1984 as well as Pro-Formula Atlantic 88-90. My regional/national car was a GT-3/4 510. Unfortunately long since sold and have been unable to trace it. My racing career spanned 1982-1991 and I drove everything everything from my 510 to a FFord, Pro FAtlantic and a 200SX called "cream-puff." Here nor there, I want to go vintage racing and decided that I would build a replica (I think they are called "tribute cars" now) car. This will be my 16th or 17th 510 since 1980. It will be based on my old buddy's (John Hoy) car as raced in 1981ish? Interestingly, John worked as a TransAm mechanic in the 80s on Frank Leary's and Paul Newman's cars. Unfortunately, I lost touch with him and heard that he may have passed on. The 510 was driven at the time by, I think, Herb Watson and was sponsored by Orangeboom Beer (may have started life as a FAR Perfomance car). At the time I was a NorCal510 member and seeing this car at Laguna Seca got me into racing. I loved the color scheme and the naming :). So, I've bought a trashed 510 and have started the process. I'll occasionally post progress pics of it here (hopefully this is the right place). Started stripping the car down to a tub this past weekend for media blast. Being a fabricator and antique car restorer, I am going to work hard to make the car as period correct, using period parts, as possible. So you may see ads for time to time of me looking for some period correct items  (a BRE manifold and remote oil block for example). Well that's it for now. As a newbie here, if this isn't the right place, let me know and hope to meet you at the track in the future. BTW, not sure how to attach photos, or if I can even do that here.
    • MantisX620, out of curiosity, how did you manage to get your Pitman arm off of the steering rack?  When we were trying to do it, my buddy only had a fork for an air hammer, so we tried using that but it wouldn't budge.  I'm thinking that maybe it was because it's going in at an angle and causing the splines to bind somewhat.  I would think some form of puller that would pull concentrically down the center of the shaft would be best, but I'm only familiar with one like that used for pulling steering wheels off (which are probably nowhere near as tightly held on as the Pitman arm is).
