Got my hands on a set of used trail arms.
Huge thanks to Denny from the board for helping me out when I was in a bind. Nice meeting u, and trully that black e30 is simply badass. Completely done right.
Yeap Rusted bolts...
my restoration would of been so much faster if it wasnt for things like this.
Now patience is your only friend, start by using a center punch mark the middle of the bolt then with a very small drill bit drill the center of the bolt, keep going up in size, soak it with Fluid film hit the sides with a hammer let it sit all night then next day use a socket(Big thick phillips head) bang it in as deep as you can in the drilled hole then very very slowly turn with the wratchet if it doesnt move at all more fluid film then hit with a hammer on the metal around the bolt fluid needs to get in that thread... yeah major Pita but you will succeed.
Back end of an E30 needs lots of work I decided to take the whole subframe and dealt with things off the car (expect damn e-brakes but I managed to change both after 2-3 days work of drilling and pulling and a lot of cursing!!
) kind of job you do once and try to forget
so in with Poweflex bushings everywhere
Nice meeting you too Ryan...good luck my friend.
