JUst bought 2 pre and 2 post cat O2 sensors + O2 sensor removal tool from amazon for $253 shipped. Spent an additional $30 for the expedited shipping option. My car wont pass inspection because the O2 sensors are slow now and my inspection expired yesterday :(

Start listening to your car, door open, as you shut it off. If you hear 3 clicks and a grinding noise, it's the tcase actuator.

Decided it was time to give the X a little TLC. After growing tired the rusted caliper look behind my rims, finally got new ones for all 4 corners and sent them out for powder coating today. Sitting in boxes waiting for this weekend:
Rotors & ceramic pads, Pull rod bushings, both complete tie rods, front control arm bushings, sway bar bushings, front outer cv boots, upper control arms (wishbones & links), rear subframe bushings, drivers seat bottom, all the green relays, parking brake shoes and wiring in a capacitor to stop my air suspension display from flickering when the lights are on.

Picked the X up from the shop after the tension struts/ball joints were replaced and it still had a little vibration on the way home so I just ordered the wishbone control arms.
