        Thanks. Yeah, there are some surface rust on my suspension parts to, but not as much as i had on my URS4 when i did the total underneat refurb. This RS2 is summer driven since it came to Sweden in 2001 and before i bought it, it was on jack stands since 2013. Any pictures of your car after you did the suspension/brake rebuild?

        • The photo I sent has the complete suspension rebuilt and reinstalled I had an issue with the Bilstein shocks as they are the wrong ride height so I had to dissamsemlre the rear end. I have also just sent the wheels for refurbishment I will get some pics over to you when reinstalled.

                • Hopefully its not too late but as you gone that far on your calipers, I would pay serious attention to the brake pad guide plates. They are notorious for trapping corrosion behind them and lifting from the caliper body causing issues with brake pads sticking.
                  Basically unless they are perflectly flush with the caliper body then there is likely to be corrosion behind them. From your pics it looks as though they is an issue on the one caliper thats visible!
                  Warning they are not easy to remove due to the small screws and disimiliar materials! Worth spending an evening researching the issue!

                    Yeah i spent a long time trying to get the bolts off, heating etc. But the screws wouldn't move a bit. Instead of breaking things i blasted as much as i could behind/between and got lots of corrosion out. The corrosion as you see in the picture has bendt the guide plate. After blasting i could bend it with not much force to its original place (tested with a brake pad). Ideal would for sure be to get them off and blast/paint behind. But to get to the bolts/drill them out it looks to me that the calipers have to be split, and to do that the guides need to be removed... In my case destroy them to split the calipers. I choose to not do this at the moment. Hopfully it will not cause problems for many years, the car will never see salty roads again in my time. Thanks for your sharp eye's and advice

                    • Long long day in the garage, but now he idles like brand new Shame on me, i had missed out on the timing of the camshafts. Some how i had set the camshafts to "zero" when the camgear was retarded the half tooth out. The inlet cam was also a tooth wrong on the camshain, must have been totaly wasted in the head when i did it as i knew how it was supposed to be..
                      Anyway, big relief this day, this have cost me lots and lots of time. Now i will celebrate with a beer.

                        • Got some new parts (Exept for the old fog light) for the car today, also a set of drilled front brake discs and pads. Happy days with new parts
                          Fog lights and turn signals original Hella, will make the front end look so much better.
