  1. I'm not sure what you are referring to by the double spacing.
  2. Top mounts aren't that bad. You'll need spring compressors. Sway bar bushings are rough and rougher depending on your approach. The sure way to do the sway bar bushings is to lower the subframe. There is a good UK boards post on this. I am a glutton for pain and got them with super tiny ratchet and socket. The problem is you have to clear the hump of the bracket with the socket and there isn't much space. If there is any trick it's rotating the steering wheel to get the tie rods out of the way a little more. Both are time consuming, but not difficult. I think I had a $600 estimate for the sway bar bushings a few years ago. The parts are cheap. If you get OEM strut mounts they'll be pricey. I think I put in Lemfoeder mounts last time and are cheaper. You'll need an alignment after the mounts are replaced.
  3. How was the routing? I know Adam has a post/pics somewhere.
  4. Rear arms in with the superpro poly. Would have been a super fast job however there's always something... one of the bolts were seized to the bushing sleeve and had to sawzall / dremel the bolt.
  5. I think I am wrong about that magnaflow/jetex same factory statement - it was bsr not magnaflow.
  6. Magnaflow is definitely less restrictive then the oem cat, but the next restriction is the midpipe. I had ordered the magnaflow before getting the rest of the exhaust and ended up colluding the two worlds. If I had to do it again I'd say just have a custom dp made and skip the second cat outright or put in one of those coolkid fake looking cats. I used the magnaflow, had an ebay machine shop craft up a flange that mates to the cat fitting / oe gasket, and had the exhaust shop install the jetex with a midpipe that has a high flow ebay cat. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stainless-Volvo-S40-V40-Downpipe-Flange-2-5-UpPipe-2001-2004-L4-1-9-Liter-Gas-/141834879198 http://www.snabb.us/S40-2001-2003-Jetex-304-Stainless-steel-high-flow-exhaust_p_277.html (pretty sure jetex is in the same factory as magnaflow?)
  7. Also an 03. About 170 when I did mine.
  8. I used it in mine when I flushed and re-did that thread. If you're phase 2 go for it. I think the older 4 speed used dextron.
  9. I think both of mine were Cardone select. The ones with the bad bearing were probably 2-3 yrs old. I couldn't say if I over tightened it though. CARDONE SELECT 669229 (66-9229) (Rock auto) FRONT LEFT CARDONE SELECT 669230 (66-9230) (Rock auto) FRONT RIGHT If you get the ones that aren't select, the ones with A1 Cardone, I think they are the reman ones? but also take a core. I'm told if they get back their own "select" as cores they just throw them out.
  10. I also had a bad bearing the last set https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dm7UTVI0nFU
  11. Door seals, front sway bar bushings, end links, oxygen sensor.
  12. Ever replace your sway bar bushings?
  13. Sorry, what I thought was the ph2 mount bits was just a serpentine pulley.
