    How do you feel about Biden NOW?

    I did a quick search for school shootings during the Trump Administration... and Google didn't show any results. However... Google did show results for the most amount of "mass shootings" during the Trump administration. Problem with that is... the FBI considers more than 4 or more people...

    Sunroof air deflector

    Probably rivited in place... and may require sunroof removal (or at least pulling the roof headliner).

    Excessive oil in intake manifold

    Sorry to hear that... but looks like you found a silver lining.

    Excessive oil in intake manifold

    Magnaflux won't work on aluminum heads. That's why I suggested dye penetration. He replaced both bent exhaust valves... and got compression up to spec. However... the guides may still be an issue. The LS 3.9 mV8 has no rocker arms. Wrong engine.

    Excessive oil in intake manifold

    Usually you set up a dial indicator on a base... and check for lateral movement of the stem in the guide. Depending on the manufacturer... usually determines the specs... which are found in the book for whatever specific engine.

    Lincoln LS Limited Slip Differential bolt-in...

    Only way to really find out is to install the center section and check backlash. Also test the wear pattern after install. That's done by "painting" some of the teeth on the ring gear... and turning the assembly to see how deep or shallow the gears are meshing. Contact on the center of the...

    Front Sway Bar Removal

    There were a few good posts and "write ups" from about a decade ago regarding the front sway bar swap. I tried digging around the site some... but haven't found them yet.

    Front Sway Bar Removal

    Are you sure about that? Did you confirm that it was in stock? FPG and Tasca have been a bit suspect lately with "in stock" parts... only to find out the part is back ordered.

    Excessive oil in intake manifold

    Just a thought... but maybe the bent valves damaged the valve guides on #7 just enough to cause extra oil consumption. Take the suspect head to a machine shop and have them pull a vacuum on the intake and exhaust ports of #7. Maybe have them dye-pen the head too to check for cracks.

    Wish the ls came with more power or a manual v8

    There are ways too eek more power out of the 3.9... but it's expensive and takes time, parts, and labor. (and tuning) It would be easier and cheaper to make the LS handle better... than going fast in a straight line. I'd like to see that Buick take some of the curves I have taken. Enjoy the LS...

    OK to change trans fluid?

    Better yet... put him on here to share his knowledge. He'll leave with his tail between his legs. We can start with suggesting the wrong fluid. (rolleyes) Sounds like all he is... is a fluid jockey.

    2000LSV8 rear subframe

    Good bearings are either Timken, or SKF. But no gaurantee they won't be made in China now. That country has us by the "short hairs".
