  1. HELP: Steering problems!?

    Bushings checked out okay too? Nothing loosened up, wheels have hub rings if necessary? Good luck, I hope you get the issues resolved.
  2. HELP: Steering problems!?

    First I would jack the car up and scour the suspension for anything that looks to be the cause of the imbalance, then fix that part first. Coilovers are going to change the stresses on other suspension components so if an end link is bad and you drop on coils there is a greater chance of having bigger problems with that end link down the road. If it's just the shocks, cool. Install coils and enjoy the lowered ride as well.

    There is no way you have over $2500 in damage, try around $1000 (max). ~$20 for the fender liner if needs replacing http://www.partsgeek.com/1tsj679-mitsubishi-lancer-inner-fender.html?utm_source=shopzilla&utm_medium=pf&utm_content=ac&utm_campaign=PartsGeek+ShopZilla&fp=pp&utm_term=Mitsubishi+Inner+Fender&gclid=CjwKCAjw2s_MBRA5EiwAmWIac7OeP2aerXLBz3CXEWSzFx1RTkIV4HOu0nfmLlIq_PMqDtNt84zcehoCpggQAvD_BwE Front bumper shouldn't run you more than $500 if it needs replacing, perhaps up to $500 in paint. If just the clips that hold it in place broke then you can install some quick releases and be set with it. It doesn't look like those clips broke from the photo though, just the plastic nut insert that holds the bumper to the fender. A few bucks in plastic hardware and you'll be good as new

    Glad to hear you're still kicking. I have joined you in Jeep land... well over my head already. I hope the rest of your studies go well
  5. Lancer Airbag Light Bypass

    Since I installed new seats I've had the airbag light on and it was driving me crazy. My research showed a bunch of speculation as to how to reset the light, whether it would just reset itself, what resistance to use, etc. Here is what I have found: 1. A 2 Ohm resistor will substitute for the seat airbags 2. Once installed, the airbag light clears the next time the car is started, no weird processes or sequences, just start it up and it's good This was done to a 2012 ES, perhaps other years and trims are different, but I'd imagine they are the same.
  6. Finding new coilovers.

    Plus the stock struts are designed to work within a specific travel range and lowering springs take them out of their optimal travel range. Think about your mileage too - the higher mileage on the struts, the faster they will fail under added stresses. If you want to go really top of the line, check out Fortune Auto. You'll spend more than for BC's though

    APKinstaller is pretty simple, should work well for you Looks good
  10. I didn't swap calipers and my rotors are slotted only
  11. *EBC, not ABC. Stupid autocorrect.
  12. Anytime. Glad you're choosing safety first. I do recommend ABC, I'm sure they will have a lighter option. They definitely are better than stock
  13. Congrats man, sad to see her go! Your ride was one I looked to often when figuring out my look. Hopefully you can stay an active member and keep the knowledge going around!

    Welcome! Love that color. Looking sharp!
  15. Replacement Struts

    Shouldn't be too bad, three nuts in the engine bay and then the connections to the control arms to drop out the front suspension. If your hardware isn't super rusty that should make it pretty easy, if it is give it a good soak with PB blaster first. You will need a spring compressor to switch the struts out, but you can probably rent one from your local auto parts store for little to no cost. Make sure you use the proper torque specs when reattaching. And a good how to video is always helpful. Remember, suspension keeps you on the road so of you aren't sure or fully confident in your ability for this job an experienced helper is a good idea, as is having a garage do the work. If you have a good local place they may let you watch so you can learn, never hurts to ask
