Took my car to a lift today and torqued the front suspension bolts to spec, properly loaded the suspension and torqued the strut to lower control arm bolt. It didn't make the steering sound go away but the ride feels a lot less harsh than before.

I did notice small damage on the rubber bushings where the strut goes due to the incorrect installation before. I'm glad I fixed it before it got worse.

Couple more weeks till I get the new truck.
Apparently the pizzas you have been buying have waaaaaaaay too many ‘shrooms on-’em. :LOL:
Even if you did order August 8th.....I’m guessing more towards October 8th. :unsure:

Nice job. What ceramic DIY did you use?
I went with Gyeon Quartz products. I applied two coats of their MOHS Q2 ceramic coating (50ml - and I used almost all of it) for the paint, and their Q2 Matte for the satin vinyl.

I used the MOHS on both the clear coated paint as well as the un-cleared paint under the hood and trunk, and my wheels.

After about 18 hours after the second coat of MOHS, I applied a coat of their Booster, which is supposed to increase hydrophobicity and add a year to the life of the MOHS.

The car has been curing in my garage since Monday; rain predicted today, so I'll hopefully be driving it tomorrow, and can then assess my work.

On the hood, and underneath the fender badges: "Pars Daemonium" meaning, "part demon" in Latin.
On the quarter panels over the Dodge Hash marks: "Hoc Notam Vinces", Latin for "This Brand will Conquer".

The theme is based off of Edgar Allen Poe's short story "The Masque of the Red Death" short story, which came immediately to mind when I considered the 1320 in Octane Red, and interpreted FCA's presser and subsequent SRT engineers as describing it as a Demon masquerading as a Scat Pack (with some literary/interpretive license of my own added).
