What would people like to see written up for a DIY Article?

I have the following in mind.

Please be aware these are more for beginners who want to start modding / Maintaining their own cars

Oil Change
Front Brake Replacment (including caliper change) <-- When the calaper finally goes i will wright this one up
Rear Brakes (Drum)
Installing an aftermarket Deck
Painting Brakes / Calipers


The following are more for those who want to dive in a little more
Engine Removal
Tranny Removal from Engine
Clutch / Flywheel Removal
5 speed swap?? when we do the swap ill take notes and pics


I have 3 saturns that probably need something done at some point in time, so i might as well take notes and help others out.

If you want to know how to do anythign else let me know...

if you do the lower control arm, take some pics, i was overly frustrated when i did them last wekeend to take pics (had to cut bolts, cut the actual bushing apart, melt the rubber out, super heat the inner bushing sleeve, and air chissel the bolt out... lets just say it was a pain in the... well every body part i have

hope yours is better, but yeah take pics, i wont be changing another one for quite some time.

I remember that one HA! What a B*TCH that was! started as a sway bar bushing..turned into a lower control arm too, bushing spun same as yours.
Car was out of commission for 2 days in the parking lot at work.
Trust me. I feel your pain. :mrgreen:
