i found a set of crowsfoot wrenches in stock at a store nearby, going to try that...

ratchet or breaker bar + extension should do the trick

hopefully i can return gayass crescent thing

Are you sure you're supposed to adjust it like that? That actually looks like maybe it would be easier to unbolt the shock and remove the spring and perch so you can adjust it outside of the car.

Yep, absolutely. Marketed that way on their site, and I've called and spoken to jackoffs at RE about it twice...

I think the E36 version is less of a pain in the balls to access, they market this product for both models. E46 version is identical, other than this extra plate they add on the bottom of it. The way the guy spoke about it, it's like "ohh yeaahhh no problem," like he's surprised I even need to ask. He might only be familiar with the E36, or the specific guy I talked to was maybe not qualified to answer? idk.

Now...When I went under yesterday evening, I noticed there's this removable plastic aero that just... clamps onto some bit of linkage down there on the drivers' side. After sliding it off, I had more access but... Still their explanation of "Ohhh yeah put a deep 14mm socket on there, and a 4" extension, 3/8ths ratchet" is totally unrealistic (and MUST apply only to the E36)

I also confirmed that I should not be using any sort of spring pad underneath this perch device... Haven't had any clanking or movement so that holds true. But I am still using one at the top of course.

yesterday


soooo ordered 6x new coils. The ones in there right now are probably the originals. Dont want to replace plugs, they're "OEM" NGK platinum and don't even have 5k on em.

while i was pulling the codes, this poor SOB pootled his 100k Sentra home, I guess reminding me it could be worse

Just throwing this out there, but if you've got multiple cylinders misfiring at the same time, I would suspect something other than coils. You might need some diagnostic equipment to be sure, but it might be worth a little troubleshooting before you just start throwing money and parts at the car.

The only odd engine behavior i notice is at cold idle, its.. A lil wobbly sometimes. Then while driving when I jab the throttle after decel, maybe 1 in 5 times i hear this very brief, subtle noise like... A clatter that reminds me of a diesel engine, again very subtle almost inaudible.

Also the exhaust when cold stinks like grim death. Level of noxiousness ive never encountered.

doesn't sound like loose van0s YouTubes I've watched...though I'm sure that's gonna be due soon.

Still haven't done anything w/ the valves yet.

Swap the coil packs between 1/2/3 and 4/5/6 -- see if the errors follow the coilpacks or if they stay on the same cylinders.

I already KIND OF did that when I got the codes a couple of weeks back

last time it was only two cyls, now its three...

the other (very likely) culprit is my "tune"
