Well actually that would have been a good idea except..the slave cylinder
turned out to be the problem.  It had jambed in the fully esctended position.
It only had 7K miles on it, but I guess due to sitting it became stuck in the
open position.


I ended up dropping subframe and lowering everything.  Finally undid the
tie-rod inners which I should have done earlier - just didn't realize I would
end up in a "jamb".


Eveything is going back together now.

I'm way late on this (my PC crashed), but why undo the slave line? I always
just pop the slave cyl out of the trans and tie it out of the way.
Muuuuuuccccchhhh easier and of course you don't have to bleed when you get it
back together. I've only ever pulled the slave line to replace either it or
the slave cyl.


Oh, and throw away the roll pin that holds the slave in. Replace it with a
nice tight fitting allen bolt with a lock nut on the other end.
