Not doing clutches per say, it is too much heavy work for me. I did assist Joe Vance in changing his clutch, but he was experienced and did all the heavy work.

By any chance do any bushings work like a press and what not?

Spinning up some aluminum bits on Joe's lathe. :thumbwink:

This was the caster plate that I made for the Mirage. I misdrilled the center hole and needed to make it larger. As it turned out, this was a much neater and more accurate way to bore that hole, anyway.

Thanks, Joe!

This was the final product:

Design me a top hat for my coilover that has the camber adjustment with the added positive camber that will fit my coilover and I would buy it. Just saying...

Stopped by Joe's garage yesterday. In 6 hours we took 6 arms off the rear, pushed out 12 bushings, installed 12 new bushings and reinstalled everything back up. We ran into trouble with some bushings but he was able to think and find a way to get them removed/installed. Even had to use a torch on one of the bushings. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Y'all done beat Joe up too much, he's thinking about "closing" Joe's Garage.

Joe helped me install some monoball rear trailing arm bushings on my M3 as well as get an alignment and corner balance. We got the cross weights within 5lbs! Top notch help, knowledge, and company. I would highly recommend his services! Maybe he'd be willing to schedule stuff when it cools down more... It was an absolute scorcher when he helped me earlier in this August heat. Thanks for the help Joe!
