    OP is your pump still running strong? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Oil usage/Oil Pressure

    V8 Engine Tech (L76/LS3)
    Hey guys, I've got an '08 GT with 125,000 miles on it, still has all DOD intact. I was well aware before I bought the car (with 123,000mi) that they were notorious for using oil due to the DOD. My wife's '07 Tahoe is the same way. My question is, how much usage is considered "normal"? My...
  3. Strange Thumping/Sound

    Drivetrain Tech
    Probably not cheap. It's probably at least 1-2 hours of labor depending on how good the shop is. You got a driveway....? That's where I did mine. Took me about 3 hours total and that included a 15 minute trip to the parts store for a tool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Strange Thumping/Sound

    Drivetrain Tech
    The forum thread linked above was my inquiry about a similar problem. Mine was much more severe though. My carrier bearing came out in 2 pieces! If yours is just beginning to fail, I would imagine that it would be much less noticeable so it's a good possibility that's what it is. Real common...
  5. Sharing a Photo

    Lounge
    I work at a relatively small Fire Dept here in North AL. Our department just recently purchased a MASSIVE $1.25m Ladder truck and we had it out the other night playing with it and taking tons of photos. One of my brothers snapped this photo of my Liquid Red GT underneath the ladder! When I...
  6. VooDooChikin Poly carrier bearing

    Drivetrain Tech
    I was advised to do this, but didn't. Didn't have any issues. This isn't to say someone won't have any issues but I took my chances and didn't have any issues. If both halfs are properly balanced it shouldn't cause an issue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. VooDooChikin Poly carrier bearing

    Drivetrain Tech
    I'll work on the tutorial. The video on YouTube where the guys kid is filming is pretty straight forward. Drop exhaust, heat shield, shaft. I left the front half of the shaft in the car and just pulled the back half out and took it and put it in a table vice and knocked old bearing off with a...
  8. VooDooChikin Poly carrier bearing

    Drivetrain Tech
    This is a side-by-side of my stock carrier bearing next to the VooDooChikin carrier bearing. The stock one literally came out in 2 pieces and the stock bushing was completely free of the support surround. This swap has made a world of difference in the comfort of the car as it no longer...
  9. Vibration in 1st and 2nd under moderate acceleration.

    Drivetrain Tech
    How do you check the trans fluid level? I didn't think there was a dip stick. The drive shaft couplings appeared in good condition. It was a total bitch getting the driveshaft to let go of the rear but I just think that's because it's never been off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Vibration in 1st and 2nd under moderate acceleration.

    Drivetrain Tech
    Thanks to all that suggested Carrier Bearing. Old one was blowed plum out. Was definitely my issue. Rides much better, still kind of jerky going in to D and R though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Vibration in 1st and 2nd under moderate acceleration.

    Drivetrain Tech
    Got the VooDooChikin poly bushing in, but guys I'm having a hell of a time getting the driveshaft out. Particularly getting it to break loose from the diff yoke. I've been prying the hell out of it and it won't budge. Do you guys have any tricks of the trade? I'm used to the driveshafts on the...

  14. DIY Paint Chip Repair with Pics

    Appearance / Detailing
    Read this and felt super confident about executing this myself. Until I stepped outside and noticed on my G8 that there are HUNDREDS of tiny little chips that go all the way to the primer. It would that weeks for me to color all of them in with a pen, my car is a 25footer for sure, any closer...
  15. Ever wonder why your G8 is so quiet?...

    Tech Lounge
    This is false, all windshields in later model cars are laminated, door windows and rear windshields are tempered to break in to tiny little pieces. It poses a hazard for the front windshield to. Be tempered. Lamination also prevents ejection in some situations. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Vibration in 1st and 2nd under moderate acceleration.

    Drivetrain Tech
    Thank you all so much. I was real close to buying the BMR diff kit hoping it would fix my issue. Y'all saved me the pain. After doing some research on the center support I'm 99% sure that's what my issue is. Love this forum and y'all are awesome. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Vibration in 1st and 2nd under moderate acceleration.

    Drivetrain Tech
    Would this cause a jerky transition from park to reverse and to drive as well? I've noticed it the past few days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for any help in advance. Let me know if I've posted this to the wrong thread as I'm fairly new to this forum. I've got a 2008 G8 GT, only mods are a UDP and eibach springs. 124,xxx miles. The issue is under moderate acceleration, only from a stand still, there is an intense vibration...

    Solid black interior, in good shape though. Starting to get the notorious wear on the drivers door handle, any remedy to keep this from getting worse or repairing it? Seats are 10/10 which I'm happy about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
