Can't argue facts.

I will soak up my son wanting to actually go to a car show with me, and my daughter being too young to not not want to go.

The front wheel bearings were getting a little noisy so I R&R'd them with BMW units. Even though they were still tight, they were surprisingly crappy sounding when I spun them without the rotor.

While I was in there, I saw the wheels were rubbing slightly on the rear of the fender liner due to the increased scrub radius (spacers) and increased caster the Ground Control top mounts create. I clearanced them at the contact point by heating with a heat gun and pushing in with a welding glove. Also, the fender liners got hit with some SC1 to clean them up a bit.
