And made some new squeegee's! That's the same door where the dent was. Pretty happy with the results!

Ok, so the diff is so much quieter, but still think something else is bad or going bad... Need to recheck the wheel bearings today.

Got to say, I haven't drove a srdet powered 510 but this VE set up seams like its the perfect combo for the 510'a. Plenty of power, can break the tires loose in 2 without really trying. Going though the twists and turns is awesome! I feel like a kid again when I'm "driving" her. From a roll she just pulls all the way though the full RPM range ESP around 4200 when the cams kick over!

Still need to clean some things up but so glad I took that trip to buy this.

I did jack up the car and put a breaker bar on them all. Zero play in all of them. :(. I know someone said they might be still bad. But I'm pretty sure it's got to be a wheel bearing. Hopefully get it done today

back to to square one......even worse now since i got the new bearings installed in the rear diff.  

 

Been driving the car everyday an all was great for a week until today, all of a sudden I have this crazy whine/howl while cruising, not on declaration, just a bit on acceleration and really crazy while holding 40-50 MPH.  Seams like the back lash setting either shifted or moved some how.  So upsetting thinking Im good to go, now need to pull it out again.      hopefully I didn't waste money and my diff shop makes it's right.

thinking of buying those clip in axle stubs an a VLSD unless maybe someone has a good r160 CLSD laying around?  lol

 

need to research the ratios and what cars they come in. Would make it a lot easier down the road to swap out if I had to.  

decisions, decisions

For all around d performance go 3.90, for better op end go 3.7, for good god damn this thing is quick! Go 4.11, for i think we just broke the sound barrier getting to 30 go with 4.375. I'm running stock 3.90 and it will pull to 120 and still eat up and auto x course.

lol  thanks,  I believe it was running a 4.375 now. it's feels great and cam cruise at 65 around 37-3800ish  

 I just started searching  for what ratios came in what make/model car on the newer 160's.  not sure if Im ready to bit the bullet and spend the $600 on the stubs!!! than find the right "used" LSD

I would say your 4.11 or 4.375. I have 3.90's and run about 3k-3200 at 70.

Thanks for all your tips. I dropped out the rear yesterday, hopefully get it back Monday.
Question of the hour is to I bring to a different t shop to have it checked? Not sure about the first place I took it too..:(.

So while I'm waiting for my rear to return, I found a nice rear seat and also brought a like new "manual" steering column cover. Trying to clean her up a bit...

A49AD44D-17A0-4541-832E-51AC2EC4E7A0_zps
As far as the 4point seat belts, I think for everyday driving, car shows/meets and since I want to have my family with me to enjoy these events, I've removed the over the rear seat Mounts. So now the front is just a lap belt, but when I go to a track, I'll remove the rear seats and hook back up the shoulder straps.
Unless I find stock 3point belts.... Idk.

Why do the shoulder belts need to be stock? Lots of guys on here are using junkyard finds.

Was just meaning stock type/style 3 points that I believe it came with. No need to be 510 stock belts.
