Hope so, won't know for a little while as I need to replace the CV Boot on the drivers side that I found torn during suspension install. Luckily it still has plenty of grease in it so the axle is fine.

Was up for some minor maintenance and needed to do the crankshaft position gasket so I decided to go off the deep end and do a mega maintenance on the car because I am just to anal not too and don't want to disassemble twice. 2 weeks later it's goin back together with all new upgrades and replacement parts including:

Vibra-Texhnics engine mount (old one tore in half when lifting motor)
New radiator fan assembly (preventative really)
Metal belt tensioner stop - DT cable one was snapped
Crower Cam NS1 and ARP bolt
Chain tensioner
New Belt
A/C clutch coil
New waterpump (preventative)
Supercharger oil and gaskets (preventative)
TB gasket (preventative)
Full coolant flush
Oil change
Drivers side CV boot replacement
