Dec 22, 2013 update on MINIzguy's 1996 BMW 318ti

The whole front end

update image

There were more leaks after my valve cover gasket replacement. It was amplified with the synthetic oil I put in too. I decided to do the oil filter housing gasket for my winter break. It still weeps from somewhere, but it may just be the power steering lines now.

I also tackled the whole front suspension. The control arms, bushings and struts were replaced with new parts. I also shimmed the steering knuckles to get approximately -2 degrees of camber for autox fun. No more sloppy front end so I feel safe driving it now!

More work is still to be done. Stay tuned…
