100. Low and slow baby! Suspension and celebration!

About 6 months ago, my steering wheel started shaking when I was doing approximately 100-120 km/h in a left hand turn. I took it to a mechanic, one I really trust, and he told me to park it up, or I'll lose a wheel... huh.
One of the tie rods was completely bust. At that point, I decided to do a complete overhaul of my front end.
I went on eBay, and I bought this:

It costed me 116€ - that's about 150-155 USD. That's what I call a good buy. Of course, everyone was (still is, probably) skeptical about the quality, but I've covered about 20k km already with these parts, and everything still seems like new. If anyone wants to know where I found this kit - here's the link:

Here's my car floating in mid air:

Right, at that point, I also decided to 'drop' my car. So, we installed Vogtland springs that I already had.
(You can read about them here: 73. Suspension and brakes on my E36 318is)
Here's a couple of shots taken on the way home:

Sorry about the bad quality... I soaked my camera while washing the car :)

And, a little celebration note...

This is my 100th post on this blog! Yeey! And, I still have quite a lot to share :)
Thank you all for reading and especially commenting! :)
