Tired of it

Got tired of the crappy ride so I started tearing it apart for the new mod. Can you guess what it is? I'll give you 3 hints:

Just the fronts. But that's because I need to get to some other parts.

It doesn't rub that much actually. But when it does I don't worry about it at all. It's a smooth surface and it can't hurt my tires or my sway bar so I'll let it rub forever.

It will eventually start wearing through the rubber.. Metal VS Rubber.. Metal will always win

I'm not buying new wheels. If anything I'll either remove the sway bar or just not turn as sharp.

As soon as I get new push pins I plan on doing that. I can't get the old push pins out for the life of me so I'm just going to cut the heads off and push the other end through.
