I found these. Not sure if they'd work.The lower spring pad. Correct?
I would be interested in that as well lower my rear ride height.
Brake kleen residue can break down oils and leave behind salts when it evaporates. Before reassembling everything I would brush the areas you sprayed with some oil and rinse off, or just use a simple acid bath to clean up.Not a big deal but it’s good to know up front. I covered everything up to prevent shaving getting into the bearings and the rest of the case. Cleaned it thoroughly with a few cans of brakes clean, but it does slow the job down to do it right.
I will post my VWR oil cooler install. Essentially going to use the kit as is but swop out the cooler for a 19-row Setrab. The VWR sandwich plate has some pressure relief system. I really wish it had an old school thermostat.Lots of great information in this thread!! I'm curious what your plans are for the oil cooler. Do you still plan on using the Setrab cooler with parts from the VWR kit? Any other parts added? I'm about to start piecing together some cooling upgrades and am wondering if you would do anything differently a second time around. Do you think the CSF radiator was a worthwhile addition?
I would love to be able to keep temps in check for 20 minute track sessions, but also really don't want to run into the issue of oil not getting up to operating temp during winter street driving. I'm trying my best to not ruin the daily drivability of the car. I've already got an APR high torque stage one tune so it sounds like coolling will certainly be a challenge.
