    Moog quality....

    Roger I went with all Moog about 6 months ago and saw none of the same quality issues. I was very pleased and everything is good so far. I ordered direct from Moog and not RockAuto

    What did you do to your LS today?

    I have gained some perspective on these beautiful yet tempestuous LS's. For all those prospective owners out there... I bought the car Jan 2nd 2017. Immediately after leaving the car lot, I filled up the gas tank. Since then, I have done the following: 1.Tow truck ride home (it didn't make it...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Yep I was surprised as hell myself and the prices were good for what has always been a decent brand imo. Strange that they wouldn't offer them in Canada as well. I put one in my Sierra last December and so far so good, but really only time will tell.

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Yes I concur. I've read all 14,708 threads on the venting topic. I have a Moroso sealed/vented box that is going in since the PO fubar'd the original mounts, but that is going to wait until I re-do/re-coat the whole trunk area a little later. Car is currently nowhere near daily driver status so...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    I had recently had the oil changed at "Iffy Lube" and they didn't tighten the filter properly. Since I intended to run it through a few drive cycles and then do another change myself, I'm going to go ahead and do that now. Good reminder on the drain plug thanks!

    What did you do to your LS today?

    After a month long hiatus during the busy season at work and fixing the leak in my bank account caused by two kids in college, it's time to get back to giving the LS a little TLC! Over the course of the last two months I started to see why Rigs always keeps a spare battery on the charger! I...

    Progress of '05 LS

    Welcome Alan, I couldn't agree with you more on the looks of this car. There is just something about it...Yours looks great. I really like the looks of a 5 spoke wheel on the LS and the gray looks great with the black!

    How to clean interior

    For a build up of gunk like you are describing, I usually make a paste with powdered laundry detergent and water and then scrub the area with the paste on a toothbrush. It's simple and cheap and laundry detergent is gentle on the leather or vinyl. It also does a great job of getting the grime...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Finished the engine cover. I found that taping off the logos was really tough to get the smooth edges I wanted, so I took a different tact. First I taped off the logo and V8 to get them close, not going all the way to the edges of the raised areas. Then I shot it with 3 coats of flat. I then...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Worked on the most tedious project thus far...painted the front of the engine cover a few weeks ago and now I'm working on bringing out the Lincoln symbol and V8 in relief. Got this far and then the third margarita kicked in. I'll post finished picks tomorrow after its done and clear coated.

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Got to pick her up from the transmission shop today with a shiny new rebuilt transmission. Bored and sleeved with new electronics and the whole 9 yards. After much haggling, I'm $2400 poorer and 3 years/36,000 miles richer. Not too bad in my estimation and I'm just glad to have her back in the...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    Thanks for the heads up. The shop I took it to did explain that they do the bores/bronze bushings. I see the earlier post in this thread about Transmission Authority and $1500 and that's about what I figured I'd pay for a re-man unit, so I'm really starting to wonder if the hassle of doing it...

    What did you do to your LS today?

    It is a locally owned and well respected shop so I trust what they are quoting, but getting a second opinion seems like sound advice. I told them to button it back up and I'll pay the R&R fee so I can have a little time to noodle on it and explore my options. Maybe take a look at RigsLS "scrap...
