    pretty sure I need rear tierods

    Don't forget to check your ball joints too if you get the 6 and 12 wobble just in case.

    After Digging all the way in This is what I Found - New Head Gasket? (Pix)

    I agree with ranchero but if you have the time and you're ambitious why not. It's mostly labor, gaskets won't be too bad. And if you have it all apart you could do the valve cover gasket as we'll. if it hasn't overheated generally the heads shouldn't be warped. Just check it with a straight bar...

    FS: OEM Splash Guards & Gen II Chrome Surround

    Would have bought those splash guards in a second if I had known they existed

    Painted grill

    Never realized I don't like the chrome that much until now haha, looks good. It might also be because the chrome is a little more in your face on the red compared to white

    2006 LS Help

    Thanks for catching that. Probably should have noted that since I too have had misfires without the light coming on/staying on. However I did have oil on mine when they failed because of a bad valve cover gasket. I also know someone with an 02 that had water in his. But every situation can be...

    Would low transmission fluid be causing this problem with my LS?

    Just wanted to throw in how to check the fluid but I'm not positive if it's the same on the 00-02 tranny. Maybe joegr could verify? All you need to do is get the car on a level surface, there should be and torx bolt in the middle of the drain bolt. Slowly remove this and if fluid starts to...

    Has anyone tried these balljoints?

    Agreed, I think it's important to always do a little research and make sure you're buying from a good known brand. Just keep in mind if you're buying aftermarket generally it's not going to last as long as OE parts. I've been wondering how those are as well.

    Btw There's a Lott of info on bad coils for our cars, a couple quick searches should tell you everything you might need to know. There's also info on why coils can go bad on these engines and proper more permanent fixes.

    2006 LS Help

    Then I'm sorry to say you're right and do need a new coil or coil(s). If you have access to a scan tool that would be ideal to check which cylinder it is. If not I would advise checking your coils. All you have to do is unbolt the roughly 8 screws and take the cover off and the coils are right...

    2006 LS Help

    If you're plugs are bad you should be having misfires which would bring up a flashing check engine light. Check for oil on your coils and plugs while you're at it. The passenger bank should take 15 minutes, the other 4 take a bit longer.

    Combine it with a good intake and you might see it increase a few digits. Probably not worth it just for that purpose though. Also I've heard you can get the LSE bumpers from Prestige Bumpers, listed as 350 w/shipping. Says out of stock but I've hearddd on this forum they can get them in if...

    Lug Nut Blues

    Sorry bigrig, I don't mean to argue with you but you should never be putting anti-seize on lug nuts. Cleaning up the studs and torquing the nuts to the proper spec should be plenty good enough. Especially if you're rotating your tires on a routine schedule and you have a bunch of new studs. I...

    Lug Nut Blues

    I would definitely check out rock auto as we'll. Just got 20 dorman lug nuts for around 1.20 a piece. Btw our lug nuts suuckkkk so don't feel bad haha. I pretty much expect to strip one every time I touch a wheel. Not sure exactly what you mean by stripping, I would assume you meant he aluminum...
