    This Manton trunnion bushing kit is QUALITY! Went to Harbor Freight and picked up a cheap arbor press and they pressed in easily.

    Rolled my fenders today and got the new wheels/tires installed. Had to grind the front knuckles down a little but that's because I have full Camaro Zeta II parts.

    Did an oil change, tune up and replaced the upstream o2 sensors. She runs like a champ again.

    For the upstream it lists a left/right and a center... What's the deal there?

    Yeah I saw that also when ordering the parts, the center one had me puzzled. I ended up using the AC Delco replacements listed as left/right.

    Met up with my tuner and got a new trans tune to go with the 3.27 gears. Took her for a little spin, bought her a load of E85, gave her a bath and wiped her down.
    Gonna heat up the garage tomorrow and tackle the new steering wheel.
