    For Sale For Sale, SCT X4 tuner for LS $250

    I put the economy tune on to make a 4 hour drive a state over for some training. Not only did my economy note change at all but the timing was so screwed up, the car would never downshift and it backfired a few times (or missed, one or the other). The tunes I got from torrie came as 3 separate...

    Time for Hub Bearings Again

    I rented mine from pep boys, its a Front Wheel Drive Hub Puller, part # 27037. Ignore that it says front wheel, it works fine. The problem will be actually getting the bearing out, i didn't have a press and had to take it all to a shop after hours of trying.

    Caliper Sliding Pin bolt Fused itself to the caliper??

    I forgot to post an update on this, my apologies. I was able to drill that hole all the way through after roughly 2 hours of trying, but with a screw extractor and a large tap wrench it still wouldn't budge. I tried to step up to a larger bit to drill through again, but as you can see in the...

    What else can clunk in the front end?

    I have probably the same clunk after my road trip to florida last week, after researching here it appears to be the Sway Bar Bushings. Ordered a set yesterday and I'll give them a shot this weekend.

    Rear Suspension Parts

    Nothing will fall off or anything so it's not dangerous to drive with them worn. Just that they will wear tires faster than normal.
