I have a 2001 that sounds like it has thrown a rod bearing. It was on the verge of needing more spent on it then it's worth and then this. But my SO loves this car, and I am certainly crazy about her. I bought a 2003 on Copart with 38k miles. I plan on using the 38k mile car to make the 01 as nice as possible. So far, I've only put a clutch in the 01, but now feel I have jumped in the deep end in mixing these two cars together to make one good one. The 01 has never been wrecked, but at 200k miles, it's time to revive it. The top, seats, interior of the 03 are 38k nice. But it is hurt bad on the passenger side, especially the front suspension. Any advice on shop manuals, what to be thinking about as I embark on this journey? I have the place and skills to do most anything, yet never have done much in Japanese car repairs.
