When the first one "went", I thought that I had a loose wheel. There was a tear in the inner boot and some of the bearings had fallen out. With the second one, I thought that I smelled some grease...

N/ A powered. 198 hp on last dyno pull. Lowered about 1" with Tein Flex A coilovers. I am running Federal 525 rs rr on 9x17 Apex Arc 8 wheels no spacers. Maybe I put the axle in backwards. (LOL)

I assume that you have jacked it up and looked and shooked things. Were all of the panel fasteners replaced? A longer video would be helpful.

Just to add to what others have said. For autox, street set up is probably fine. For track, as churchx pointed out, you need track pads and high temp brake fluid. Stock rotors are fine. In DE...

I have a similar caliper and yes, it would work but, you have to know the thickness of the backing plate. Then, you get into all those derivatives.

You won't hear grinding on forward gears because you are bumping into the synchro rings. Grinding when attempting to put in reverse if your clutch is not disengaging.

First, you brought a claw hammer to a car fight. Second, those prybars are ok for pulling nails but not rigid enough to get axles to pop out. I used a pickle fork and mine popped right out.
