As you all know our track time has been suspended for the time being meaning the nearly race ready Spec e30 I bought is now on jack stands and is my quarantine project. I have some questions for anyone willing to listen. so here goes nothing
I’ve got caliper rebuild kits coming with new seals and boots. I was planning on also replacing the old pistons with stainless steel pistons. Is that allowed per the rules? i cant find anywhere it is specifically said no but did not said yes either
I was considering replacing the rocker arms, sprigs and eccentric rockers withe HD arms and springs. But I’m nervous about pulling the head off and trying to do that myself. This has two parts. Is it worth doing the rocker arms and springs; secondly, is this something that could be done in the driveway by someone without much mechanical experience?
I have ordered polyurethane sway bar link bushings; does anyone know anything about the installation and what the benefits are of them? Im planning on doing both in the back links and the bottom one in the front. I also plan on doing solid sway bar mount bushings too.
Im also going to do the timing belt, intermediary shaft seal, camshaft seal, and o-ring. Since I have nothing but time anything else that should be refreshed in the front of the engine?
Im redoing all the bearings. I have the rear ones pressed in and just waiting on a snap ring to finish one side, and all four axle bolts (the retaining ones were used up and I stripped a rear one). I already have the front hubs just need the bolts to hold it on.
I have new control arms and tie rod ends I’m planning on installing. still need to pull the old ones out. Anyone ever done that before or have any experience with it? any tips?
