  1. Rear tire wear

    Suspension / Brakes
    Maybe... maybe not. In my car's case, the bend in the toe rod was slight enough to where I only saw it when I was laying under the car. And mind you, I was the one who bumped the curb which is why I got under there looking for why the car felt different. If the tech hasnt driven the car...
  2. Rear tire wear

    Suspension / Brakes
    Oh another possibility might be toe rods back there. Remember its an independent suspension and if you or anyone else ever clipped a curb or hit a driveway just right, you could have bent something back there.

  8. AC low pressure port leak

    Tech Lounge
    No sweat man... we all get busy. I get it. So you used the special socket to remove that ball valve and put in an AC Delco shrader? That fvcking thing is so tight on there it looks like a single piece. I cant even see a line where its 2 pieces. Are you sure there wasnt an update to an...

    So you were indeed able to screw off and replace the ball valve on the OEM refrigerant tube? I asked you in another thread but you never got back to answer. I ran out of time and have since bought a replacement refrigerant tube... I havent yet installed it.

  17. About to do H&R coilovers

    Suspension / Brakes
    Shock tops? The rear mounts need to be swapped onto the coilovers? Also I'm not running adjustable sways.... Do the bumpstops need to be trimmed?

    Time to finally refresh the suspension on the 115k mile cruiser... I'm doing superpro strut mounts and bmr poly rear cradle bushings. Gonna buy some new bumpstops as I'd imagine the stickers are beat to hell. Anything else you guys might add?
