Aws is more of a gimmick than a performance upgrade. For the weight savings and direct feeling deleting the system does, its more of a upgrade to not have it. If you have more power or are going to do anything motorsport related, having anything free moving other than the front steering isn't exactly a good thing. Figure your taking a turn at 80-90mph, your aws decides to kick in because its old and works when it wants to, the backend feels like its letting go and you go to countersteer. What do you think happens next? The car wasn't really letting go and now you are steering in the wrong way for no reason. BAM hit a wall.

Ya it was pretty easy. Had to use a hammer to get it to slide off the front studs but was reaaly simple. There is a ton of shit that came off including the underneath lines guard and other shit. There is more shit I'm doing to. I will have to cut
out one of the studs as its stripped (thats why I had to cut the nut off) and that way I can tighten the carrier bearing better. Really good product from pampena. As soon as I get some time I will let u know how it feels. Plus I drag race and like the weight reduction. Outright in my load sensor and wiring it up for my nlts. Then she is done.
Guys really easy to do and mine leaked for years from the rear rack. That's why I'm flipping that off. Defintly helps having the right tools. Ordered a new inner boot for my rear axle and will be in 8 am tomm. Then plug the front rack and loop the ps res together and done. Probably take an hour or two
^^^ I had soaked every bolt and nut I thought I would be removing in Liquid Wrench the night before, so everything came apart pretty smooth. I think I snapped one little stud on one of the plastic line protector panels underneath.
