Thanks!... yeah, I knocked this out on Monday in about 30 minutes total time, waayyy easier than I expected it to be, but fairly messy. I thought those pins went all the way around and was amazed when the first one came off in about 5 seconds. Anyway, thanks again for the assistance and to anyone else, DON'T pay the $350 the dealer/indy wants, DIY for $100 is the way to go!
