This could be caused by the lift and the fact that I still have the stock panhard rod. This has not caused any drive or tyre wear issue it just annoys me. I am not sure how the axle alignment changes with corrected panhard rod length to suit lift.
    Have you talked to a wheel alignment place mainly a 4x4 shop close to you

    Noticed first approx 5yr ago, about same time as had caster correction bushes fitted and whl alignment. Recently put 33" tyres on and rubbed flap. Will go back to the alignment joint see what they say.

    Had the car since new should be straight, have only hit two roos, one large one but he went along outside of that guard, the side rails took most of the brunt and only needed minor panel work(guard & door).

    Spent a little more time cleaning up form the mess I made a few weeks ago.

    Pulled off all the door trims barn doors too, washed them and inside bottom of the doors. All of the plastic sheets that's behind the trim looked like they've never been off, well not until now.

    Power steering box has stopped leaking whatever it was leaking out. All other fluids are OK.

    A/c bearing doesn't seem to be that bad so I'll just monitor it.

    Sway bar wasn't snapped on the last trip. I noticed that the front corner was sitting lower a few months ago and just didn't do anything about it. I took it out today and sitting level again.

    Still to do.

    Front diff, check hubs
    Degease/wash engine, bay and car.
    Buy and fit new carpet.
    Buy and fit diff breathers.

    Transfer case and transmission got breathers correct, that where the 4 way port kit gets used.

    First time that I've drowned a car like this and the last that's for sure.

    Also planning on getting the clubsport on the road and registered before Xmas

    If you pull the carpet out and thoroughly clean and then dry it, the stuff you would probably repace is the underlay, then refit the carpet, unless its so cheap to replace the entire lot. That JingPing stuff is great insulation and closed cell I believe, so it won't absorb water if you do this again.

    The carpet has stains and a hole in front of the accelerator pedal. $165 for new carpet just no sure if that includes underlay. @mudski.
    Not planning on doing it again.

    It's been a good excuse to give the car a good clean, done inside all the door jams yesterday as well.

    A few things accomplished today.

    Added oil to the viscous hub for better G35 fan lockup. Bit of a mission.
    Enormous thanks to @mudski for the guide , help and the hub studs today mate.
    Also added some foam surrounds to the radiator , which I didn't even know were meant to be there . Again thanks for @mudski for pointing this out and providing some spare foam.

    New Koyorad radiator in today. New water pump gasket, and about 6ml more silicone hub oil in the viscous hub. Plus while everything was out I soaked the a/c condensor in CT18 and then pressure washed it out. More dirt than expected came out. Hopefully this helps with the ol'kettle.

    Interesting as Patrolapart recommended me to use silicone instead of a gasket for the water pump, it gets the fins closer to the timing case and helps with flow and cavitation apparently.
