I can't weld. Don't know how so my only option is drilling. Ima try heating the stuck bolts up and spraying pb blaster and hopefully they come out but for the snapped bolts as you can see in the picture the two on the passenger side still has quite a bit sticking out.

So if I can heat it up and see if it will turn with a vise that would be great but if not I will have to cut and drill them out.

So my sway bar kit shipped today! Thank God. Now I'm just waiting on my sway bar adapters. I also bought a walbro 255 fuel pump off a friend for $35.

Now is it just me or does this bolt look welded in there?



I've been at this for two days and no progress whatsoever! I've heated it up and took an impact to it and nothing. Seriously just about to buy new hubs and subframe.

Good note I got my awr sway bar and my sway bar adapters and hei mod harness is on the way.

So I've determined the old subframe is junk. My dad found a probe at the pull a part and all the bolts came out perfectly fine so he got it for me.

Now my only problem is getting the three bolts that snapped in half fixed now. Me and him are on it and will try a few things.

Could anybody tell me how to install the sway bar adapters or where to install them that had the Megan links?

Also one more question I have never installed camber bolts or messed with them. On the rear subframe the two bolts in middle how do you adjust them? Same way as the front? Sorry for the question if it's already been answered just want everything done right before I install everything.

Thanks guys!

I still have no updates whatsoever. Car has been sitting on jack stands for months for one problem smh. I also have no heated garage or a way to move the car since I can't get the subframe back in. Once it starts warming up again I'll be back at it trying to get this subframe back in.

Sorry guys really wasn't expecting 3/4 bolts to snap or I would of been had the car on the ground.

In the meantime I bought a 2003 Honda civic coupe as a winter beater because I hate my 13 focus so much.

I think it is possible that he may have become very discouraged -because from looking at that last photo posted -that would almost discourage me on that particular Probe (and especially if the rest of the car is rotted just as badly).

However, I have been very lucky that none of my Probes have ever had the cancer that bad and so it has never been an issue for me.

I left the probe scene for 4 years. Came back from being over the road. When it came time to find a DD I started looking everywhere for my next project. It's truly an addiction plan and simple

Lol I know guys I'm sorry. I have my own place now so funds for this build are tight. I also need to get some unnecessary bills out the way.

As klze said though between the 3 bolts snapping and other sh*t on the subframe it really did discourage me but main reason this build is slow is the funds for it.

This build is still going and in full effect! Just really slow.

I did buy pistons, rods and rod bearings for the motor build. Decided to go the way mac1 did with his vitara build. J20a pistons and milly s rods.

I've decided to also switch over to air so my coils are for sale if anyone is interested. My wheels and tires too are also for sale. I have another setup in mind now.

I won't disappoint nor will this build stop. I will finish it.

How is the fight against the rust coming along?

If you are still fighting it -I can say to not get totally discouraged until you stick your fist through a sub-frame rotted hole. That is where I got discouraged with my KLZE Porsche project and called it quits. But good things can sometimes come from bad.

I would not have fell in love with the Probe if I hadn't picked up that first one as an engine donor that never came to fruition.

I haven't attempted anything since then. I bought a 2003 honda civic ex coupe as my new daily and put coils and other little mods on it. Finally back to giving the probe the full attention it needs.

Bought a tool I need to use for stuck and snapped in half bolts. I'll pb blast it and heat it up before I attempt using it though.

Money wise I am so deep in this probe it's ridiculous and I'm way too excited right now to get discouraged. I'll keep pushing on no matter how hard it gets and if I can't get it I'll ask for help like I always do.

It is very much so Alot easier to modify a honda and so much more cheaper!! I know because I've had

My first car 1993 Honda civic dx coupe, 1994 Honda accord coupe, 2000 Honda accord sedan, 1990 Honda civic hatchback and now this my 2003 honda civic ex coupe.

I've also had a white probe 96 gt and my current one 94 gt. I have a 2013 Ford focus that I hate but my mom drives it because she needed a car and I got the civic to daily.

Probe is still my full dedicated project. Since my last update I have bought

Synapses bov, tial wastegate, j20a pistons, milly s rods, milly rod bearings and performance springs from Australia. I do currently have a long list of goodies in my multiple carts waiting on me. Waiting on a deposit to hit so I can buy them.

Yall will be very pleased with these next big purchases. Once again thank you all for actually being interested in my long drought out build.

So on this nice may day I've decided to give it a try at my snapped in half rear subframe bolts. I bought this tool off Amazon that's supposed to help remove snapped/stuck bolts.

I sh*t you not all I did was use Pb blaster and a little heat and both bolts came out in less than 10mins



Now I just have to clean the threads and put new bolts in. I also have a better conditioned subframe, new bolts, unrusted bolts and knuckles to be cleaned and painted.
Then of course my awr sway bar kit, Megan racing trailing arms, trailing links, and king6 sway bar adapters to be put on when painted so I can put the car back on the ground.

Huge step in getting closer to having her back on all fours.

My Borg Warner gm-5 Turbo also came in with a modified v band and clamp. Works as is with no shaft play but ima buy a rebuild kit just in case.



I have Alot of parts coming in next week and sending Alot off to get painted. Also buying more next week as well.
