IMS bearing

My palms are getting sweaty for Iím preparing to replace my IMS bearing.

Sending my wife out of the country, while I do this surgery. So I will only have one problem to deal with.

Wish me luck you all.

Lmao.

Good luck, my best of luck goes to you. Just keep a steady head and have a cool drink at hand. Keep things slow, and take a lot of pictures in case you need a reference point. Also, you could share with us. Noticed you reside in the DFW areal; sent you an invite.

What's the going rate on having a shop replace the IMS on a Tip car?
