Hey, thanks buddy!!

Seriously, what a PITA! Reminds me of installing the sway bar links on my BMW 2002... equally frustrating, but in that case I just bought longer bolts!

You have not mentioned anything so I will assume the problem has been solved, but I have been reading the recent messages about filing the rear arms when installing the rear uprights (part "E1") in step. 10. If you did not file enough material then the uprights will bind, and that could cause oversteer. I looked back and yours are the only comments about significant oversteer, so I thought this might have been a problem on your car. You might want to disassemble these and see if they assemble easily. If there is any resistance, then you should file them a bit more. You do not want to file them to the point where they are really loose, but the parts should not have to bend or be squeezed at all, they should just slide together.

easy way to check, take off the shocks, raise the suspension up, and drop it. If it drops freely, your suspension is good, but any binding will show up, making the suspension slowly go back down again. In really bad cases the suspension is so tight that the suspension wont go down at all. You want your suspension to be loose enough that it freely falls down when doing this simple test. My 05 should either arrive today or monday
