    Bought all of this from a salvage yard that had a 2017 mirage. Paid 482 after tax. Not too bad considering how much they are from the dealer. So I get the upgraded suspension and the upgraded rear drums on my 2014. Will be posting pictures of the process today. First I need to run and get some brake fluid.

    Too bad you didn't get the front brakes too.

    It's still there but it put me over my parts budget and my fronts are fine for now. Eventually I will but I'm gonna buy the whole front crossmember, knuckles, Etc. Eventually I'll have a complete 2017 in a 2015 shell.

    Are you changing the entire axle assembly on your car or are you just swapping parts? Is the alignment of your current axle OK?

    Car-part.com then I called one of the closest places and asked how the car was damaged. Then asked for parts based on that

    1. Did you ever pack your bearings? and
    2. How were the Enasaves & rims on the wreck?
