  1. WIth IE front suspension Poly bushings, is there any need to do the full weight on the wheels routine? The torque is just going to apply to the steel spacers, and the poly spins in its' special grease. Unlike rubber that is working like a torsion bar. Thoughts?
  2. You should be fine with all OEM parts and Bilstein . See Ace Andrew reply
  3. I am using my less than flat OEM ones so far, so no skin in the game besides redoing the window felt and aluminum topper but here is the other thread on this. I just know that even a trip to a lumberyard eats up more time than the Varco Kit. which is well vetted,
  4. Just keep the good 2002 suppliers in business. Why mess around and source wood and drill your own holes. Your time is worth money!!! https://www.2002parts.com/bmw/door-panel-kit.html Done. Also a good price on the green clips. Clip wise, RM European has an "OEM" brand similarly priced and cheaper than ECS BMW brand but then you need to make shipping worth it.
  5. NAPA has them by me for ship to store.. or home too possibly. Unsure if a midwest thing, but the NAPA store is one of 23 owned by one distributor I hear. Just picked up 2 sets, and the real 7333 item. (plus the unused set I just installed to replace the BP7ES that came in the car.) The AMAZON purchase was a FAIL. The ones that were shipped by buckeyetoolsupply were the R version. I got these from NAPA for $2.69 each on sale
  6. How are your splines? I did my wheel bearings a year or so ago, and cleaned the splines. They are in good shape, but still don't want to slide effortlessly on. Waiting for the pandemic to subside and use my buddies press. Is that normal?
  7. These guys did I am months or year away from the road but I Considered them. You may love them in GA but up near Chicago I have the wording about dont even think about supporting a vehicle.. From Tire Rack site The Azenis RT615K+ is a further evolution of Falken Tire's championship-winning Extreme Performance Summer tire, the Azenis RT615K. Developed for drivers of muscle cars, sports cars, street rods and performance sedans who want ultimate grip in warm, dry and wet conditions, the Azenis RT615K+ is not intended to be serviced, stored nor driven in near- or below-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. Extreme Performance Summer tires exposed to temperatures of 20 degrees F (-7 degrees C) or lower must be permitted to gradually return to temperatures of at least 40 degrees F (5 degrees C) for at least 24 hours before they are flexed in any manner, such as by adjusting inflation pressures, mounting them on wheels, or using them to support, roll or drive a vehicle.
  8. I followed the green with white from that 9 pin connector it runs with the other wires ( that are all in one sleeve ) up into the Steering Wheel cover that covers the turn signals etc. I found a Relay looking thing under there, with a Green and Brown wire on the other terminal. I don't think it is a Buzzer, but it is a Hella part. It is what it is in the pic below
  9. My 73 I just looked and that Green with white that is from the corner of the plug goes with all the others up under the column cover inside that large wire loom cover you have the arrow to turn signal. Looks from the diagram to go to pin 6 on the ignition switch to feed the Elec Choke on automatic or Fuel pump on Tii. Fuse 12?
  10. This Post shamed me into registering.. not hard once you find the link 2587461 not far from this one

  12. Just like Paul said, Good pic of Clip https://www.rogerstii.com/bmw-2002-clamp-for-outer-door-chrome-trim-with-weatherstrip/ Where my Aluminum is broken I seem to see a black metal channel at the top of the door panel (second pic). My biggest thing is mission creep Not wanting to redo the sorta wavy panels. Also , the Winder and Vent window springs and plastic disks, I hear the springs go between the door panel and the door itself, then the plastic discs go between the vinyl and the window crank. It seems odd, but is that really how it goes? What keeps the spring from screwing itself from behind the Panel/Vinyl?
  13. I am pretty sure I got mine here, they seem to only have 95 Amp in stock now. https://www.ebay.com/str/eagleautoelectric/BMW/_i.html?_storecat=5
  14. A good Poly Bushing install is AceAndrew s version. I used it for my IE Bushings. I am not to full weight on torque yet though. I also used Cycloptic Gaze who also used urethane. All ours are black version though. Are you sure of your bushings? http://www.cyclopticgaze.com/2002/13front_rebuild.html
