when i started my jdm climate control i started doing some wiring for this

i have the extra fuse added to the fuse box modded my fuel cluster to have a 4ws light in the far right lower indicator that isnt used. wired the front sub steering angle sensor that goes behind the wheel. all that runs to a plug i added in the cluster of plugs in the dash on the passenger side. i finished the harness today that runs to the back so tomorrow i am going t put this in and mount the computer. also tomorrow i have new tie rod ends for both the front and rear steering racks.

then on Friday(if my date doesn't pan out) the car is going in the garage for a while(again) and i am tearing the rear subframe and front rack out. i have to reuses some parts on my rack that were damaged in the accident the donor car was in. if i don't get to it Friday i will work on it before work on sat. then Monday i am off and ill try to finish her up then and when i have the evening off on Tuesday. the 4 wheel alignment is scheduled for wednesday. ill keep you posted. here are the few pics i have

add on harness from dash back



do you see the 4ws wiring in there?



just picked up the rest of what i need


got alot done today 4ws computer is mounted all wiring is 95 precent done just need to extend the wires through the engine bay for the steering rack and mount both racks now

waiting for the rear rack chillin and waiting



my dad hookin up some wiring to the 4ws computer





4ws computer mounted and wired (dad being a ham)



new abs computer in had to change both plugs and splice in a few wires and add 2



ok i worked on this for 2 hr so far had to go volunteer at the American cancer society and help them move some furniture so they old people didn't hurt them selves. this is as fr as i can go on the back so far there is a rear camber adjustment with the 4ws so i am having to overnight some bolts from la to the tunes of 48 bucks my discounted price for 2 bolts 2 washers and 2 nuts, they are 4ws 4g specific so no hope for a junk yard on these just gota pay it

now off to work on the front rack till 5

ok now for pics

motor mounted and wired plastic cove isnt on in this pic and the tie rods arnt on but its all finished except for those two bolts



completed

obably not. because if you have the know how to do this, and a helms manual it is very simple. the hard part is sorcing the parts. I got lucky and got a 92 4ws with no engine inerior bumpers hood or doors for free. I snagged all the parts from it for this. and made about 500 ;eling little bits here and there from the car.

this is no ware near a fre mod for me though retail on those tie rod ends is 350 I paid 200 though cause I got mad hook ups at honda. and then a 4ws alighnment is running me 129 but is normaly 200

Wow thats a lot of trouble to go trhough, luckily you know how to do it yourself.

I wrecked my 4ws lude and sold it for $1k and bought a non 4ws.....I miss it :( It was always nice turning into that tight parking spot without having to back up
