Could you measure the shutter and spring?  These look like they will fit an FC also.  Finisher plate tabs at 3-9 for FC so different from FD

I run a similar spacer but the S4 end links are at/past  the point of binding.  The ends are set at 90* to each other and moving the bar forward puts the LCA mount into bind.  A nice set of heims would be nice, or the LCA end of the link needs to be bent to reduce the angle.

S5 has a different link

•SpecificCV boots…  Notably this version of shaft does away with the trilobal adapater ring since we found a boot that has the inner CVs bump features built in.

sounds like Ronin found the proper boot

You are correct flasher/haz  is in the kick panel, no round flasher unit.

There is 1  10m nut at the top and 3 plugs that need removed to pull entire (CPU) unit out 3" wide 8" long, w/tab at bottom.  The 8 place plug on the bottom is the turn haz. Mine didn't work and replaced with a salvaged one.

I'd Check the bulbs first

The fast blink rate is a sign of a bad bulb / connection, if your dash top warning lights work  a bad brake light will show there.  the (CPU) must see incandescent resistance or will set a light.

You have speed sensitive assist.  Includes a 3 hole rack, 2 section pump, steering angle input, speed reference .  The reservoir has a ~ 5" o ring around the perimeter with flooded intake.  This pump also has 2 sections one low volume (small line) and one high(big line) third line is return to the reservoir.  I made a longer bracket to move the pump away from the header ~ 1".  I also added a ps cooler for more efficiency (junk yard mini van).  You may also be over speeding the pump if your lower pulley is bigger than 6".  The speed sensing s5 pump has a much narrower reservoir.

I have the following   (new,  has some garage rash)

1 engine cradle complete  w/ bolts (no rubber)
1 S4  t5 mount GM   (no rubber) may need one hole slotted to fit S5
1 S4  th350 mount  (no rubber)  may need one hole slotted to fit S5
1 pair sway bar mounts w/bolts  aluminum

I'd take $275 for cradle + one trans mount + sway bar spacers     shipped

You need the belly pan for air control anyway, otherwise the hot air will cycle from the engine side to the front when slow/stopped super heating the rad.

The pitted bearing is 100% gone, the other not so good either.  For peace of mind Id change out all bearings ( also check the posi frictions and plates (behind the side gears, mine had broken ears and worn splines)

If you want to get rid of the rubber line at the stock filter location, this fitting below will adapt your stock 8mm feed/return hard line to AN/JIC 3/8 hard line ( will need to flare tube 37*).  Plumb -6 (3/8) hard line up to your new AN/JIC filter, soft over to engine. same for return if you are doing it that way

This is a standard JIC hydraulic fitting (37*) Mine were about $7 complete at a Parker Store  The aero # can be cross referenced to the parker # or just take the list

summit does not have a complete fitting but these are the pieces to make one (one each of the following)
from summit racing

Aeroquip FBM2755 - Aeroquip Reducers 
Fitting, Union Reducer, Male -6 AN to Male -5 AN, Steel

Aeroquip FBM3571 - Aeroquip AN Tube Nuts

The adapter will bolt to it    BUT     input shaft length, clutch disk position, release bearing, pressure plate, flywheel.  All need to work together for the system to work.
