Only additional thing I'd recommend is to double check that they preloaded it with some torque. They're technically supposed to be removed (since the strut bolts hold everything in place once they're...

No problem, happy to be of some help! What symptoms is the car showing? I'm a bit lost as to what it could be if whoever is diagnosing it went from front wheel bearing to bushing play. Is there a...

Try swapping the front pads from left wheel to right (i.e. take the driver side pad set and put them on the passenger side) and see if it follows the pads or not?

I agree with weemus on both. For trans the trans issue, that's sounds mostly like a clutch issue. Could be not using the whole clutch, could be a bad bleed on the clutch pedal, or could even be...

Sounds like the distributor missed some details themselves, neglected to tell you, or hid it in the fine print. Definitely can't use OE lug nuts with most aftermarket wheels, MRR included.

MRR still uses conical/tapered lug seats, but as mentioned above the bore of MRR wheels is too small for the OEM lug nuts so they won't seat correctly. I specifically got these...

That's where things get tricky. IMO the best bad for street and track use would be OE or maybe even the DTC 30. I've not heard much on the 30's before, but they seem better suited for mixed use than...

I'd recommend bringing a backup set of other pads for track use to be on the safe side if you drive hard. While the HPS 5.0 may feel grippier on the street, I'd expect them to fade quite quickly and...

You'll know if the park brake doesn't apply. It'll ding like crazy and I think put a message and/or warning light on the dash even if the car is off.
