Re: more right tie rod headache - coupe

Move your battery to the trunk like I did and the improovement in 
underhood space is amazing!!!  The tray is spot welded in but the 
welds are not strong and the tray comes out very easy.  I've done 
this on both my Coupe and 4kq.  4kq owners can afrer that remove the 
pass side driveshaft without taking the downpipe off!!
