Great to hear you are back in the saddle! Being old and busted sucks!I drove mine. In fact, been back driving for 2 weeks now. The seats and suspension are not made for driving any distance when you are a bit broken. The gear shift (with short shift) is a joy, I can shift by "wrist action" and leave my buggered arm in a neutral position...
Hopefully soon I will be mended enough to actually wash it, it is filthy!!
You'll want a large box end wrench to get over the rear vertical bolt's nut, and you have to basically come at it from straight towards the side of the car. It's a 21 mm, and you'll need a 12 point box end, for sure, to get on it. Just feel for the nut with your fingers as loosen up the bolt and you'll feel it spinning. Taking it loose is easy, though... You may want to leave the nut in the slot unless you're going to replace it.Got my TB torque gusset waiting to go on. I may have to wait until the Christmas break so it's just sitting in my garage, mocking me along with the LiquiMoly DCT fluid for my trans.
Had a Ram 1500 get all butt hurt by the fact I was in the left lane as he merged in on the right and accelerated to stay in front of me rather than pull in behind me on the otherwise empty two lane road. Apparently he wanted to get into the left lane to get a coffee at the Tim's 2 km downstream, and every time I sped up a bit to go by him, he matched speed to stay on my front 1/4 panel. Fine. Drop to third, punch it and he's an afterthought in my rear view. That was how my day started.
