Hey GSMan, glad to hear you got the "full setup" also...works nice, eh?

Intellexual - It's around there...ask Steve...the rear LCB is another $355 or so though...defintely worth it...

Richie - Man, I've been busy as hell. Doing some freelance projects and stuff. Haven't had any time to get on the site...man, I had like 8 pages to posts to read JUST in the GS section (not including the Suspension and Engine sub-sections)...

Default Install of Tom's Six Link

I did the install and it was fairly straightforward with the pics. They were indispensible. You need four jack stands, a good socket set and a torque wrench. The instructions are in Japanese so I had it professionally translated. If anyone would like a copy, let me know.

If you're trying to figure how the pictures are oriented, use the Sway Bar and exhaust pipes as reference (as well as the drivetrain). The resonators (the "tubes" on the exhaust pipes that look like "glasspacks") is in FRONT of the rear Lower Chassis Brace crossbar...the "open" side of the TOM'S rear Lower Chassis Bracs is towards the FRONT of the car (look a the first picture so you can see what I mean)...from that, you should be able to orient the pictures...also, the ends of the swaybars (the flat part where you actually mount the bar...NOT the rubber ring...) point toward the front of the car...

[COLOR=c rimson]REAL MODS![/COLOR] That's what it's all about! Not some ****ing blinking lights and shiny parts....
This is my next planned mod and would like to know if you can please email me more pics at rbbsupraholic@hotmail.com to help with the install. But if you know any shop(s) in SoCal that can do the install, that would be helpful as well, though I will look to see how hard the install would be. Thanks in advance!

lol this thread is all the way from 01, i wonder when will manaray actually log on again

in any case, installing the 6 link and the brace isn't that hard, a lot of shop can do that in socal. go to the socal section (towards the end of the forum main page) and i am sure people can recommend places

installing the rear lcb is not trivial, coz' you need to support the gas tank when putting on the brace
