31. Install the motor mounts to each side of the motor using the 13mm bolts, then reinstall the ground straps on the driver’s side and starter harness on the passenger’s side with the 15mm nuts.
32. At this point, you can go ahead and install the front O2 sensors into their respective sides on the headers. You will need the O2 extension wires to connect these sensors to their original harnesses.
33. Reinstall K-member in the reverse method that it was removed. It was really helpful to have two extra sets of hands and a jack during this step for me.
34. Once the K-member is bolted and torqued into place, lower the motor back onto the K-member making sure the motor mount bolts line up and go through the slot in the K-member. Once it is lowered onto the K-member and in the correct position, install the motor mount nuts using a 22mm deep socket.
35. Next install the steering rack back onto the K-member and then attach the steering shaft to the fitting on the steering rack.
36. Reinstall the G-load brace to the rear of the K-member under the headers and transmission. In my case, the brace was touching the header, so I had to put large washers between it and the K-member to make the brace sit a little lower.
37. Replace the coil spring and reinstall the suspension and steering components beginning with the last thing that was removed and continue backwards. The reinstall order should be: ABS sensor, sway bar end link bushing and nut, strut to spindle and ABS bracket, tie-rod end, and rotor and brake caliper. Refer to steps 4-9 for images and tools required. Be sure to re-bend the cotter pin once you slide it through the castle nut of the tie-rod end.
38. Now repeat step 37 on the passenger side of the car. The passenger side is the exact same process because all the components are identical.
39. Now you can go ahead and install your midpipe. Follow whatever instructions are provided and make sure to remember to transfer the rear O2 sensors from the stock h-pipe to the new midpipe and connect them to the harnesses.
40. Finally, put the wheels back on the car, tighten the lug nuts, lower the car, and torque the lug nuts down. Take it for a spin and listen for leaks. If you took your time and used quality gaskets you should be leak free and good-to-go! Congrats!
