Then I guess lots of us will loose the pictures we're sharing with/to

others...

No way I'm paying for it!  So, consider my stash gone as well when they

try to charge me...

Did photobucket change their policy recently?



I've noticed photos in many online blogs and forums disappearing the past few

weeks.

I like flickr and it's still free.  Here's an album I put up when I was selling my Aran Beige TR8.

Thanks for all the great info guys. I will let the list know what I find

out. Gary, I will check out the TWOA article as I wondered about Poly

bushings. There was a section in Roger Miller's book about not using Poly

bushings in the rear because of Road noise.

Just a heads up, any photos that I've shared to others via Photobucket will be

gone within 48 hours. I'm just not interested in paying $400 a year for that

service. On that note, what are you using to host/share photos? I've been

using DropBox some so will just switch to that full time for now.

Pat,

A day late here as I was on travel.  I had the same problem in the spring of

2016 after installing some soft rubber bushings to replace a set of poly, in

the hopes of making the ride a little softer.  Mistake in my case as I too

had torque steer develop.  My situation precipitated the TWOA suspension

bushing test that was printed last year in TWOA Summer newsletter #35 and

starting on page 7.   Check it out.

Wedge List / Sway bar clamps.

Did they make clamps to fit the TR7 sway bar?  If so, anyone have any they

want to part with.

Fixing rusty mounts isnbt all that difficult.  You have to remove the seats

and carpet to access everything, but new metal can be welded in.  Done it

several times on rusty floor boards, and even done it on none rusted ones just

to add reinforcement for a hopped up engine.  The other problem area is the

mounting holes themselves.  Ibve seen many of them oblong.  This allows the

control arm to move fore and aft causing a torque steer effect.  Solution

there is to weld grade 8 fender washers over the holes.  I actually like to

take it a step farther and drill out the washers to 1/2b and replace all the

bolts and bushing sleeves with grade 8 quality 1/2b bolts instead of reusing

the stock bolts.  I also like to use longer bolts and stack extra washers so

that none of the threaded part of the bolt contacts the edge of the holes.  On

my 525 hp LS3 powered TR8, I added all kinds of structural steel tubes into

the floor and then tied the roll cage into them.  Hopefully those wonbt rip

out.
