    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Finally finished replacing the UCA, Spindle,. Ball Joints and LCA on my son's truck after the wreck. Still have a noise when driving which I am thinking might be the wheel hub or the CV shaft. Did find the tie rod attachment point on the spindle between the two was different. The one that...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Bad grounds and broken wires

    The best one was the suitcase connector on the purge solenoid on my wife's 2006 Envoy. The previous owner bypassed the wiring harness for some reason. Soldered both ends correctly and the P0446 code went away.

    Front End Work Both Sides

    I have rebuilt two front ends in this platform in the last 2 years and will do my son's again after a wreck. It is physically taxing to do in a day but over a week not too bad. I hope my son's can help me when I am in my 70's and need to do this. My guess is that they are doing everything ball...

    What are you doing today?

    I prefer the vise to be so it can clamp to something that hangs below the work surface and having the vise back an inch or so makes this harder. Oh I forgot the word jaw so I set the vise so the rear jaw is even or overhanging the edge of the bench I am tired after an afternoon at the pick...

    Fuel Pump Replacement Video

    The 1st tank I ever pulled to replace a pump was on a 2005 Trailblazer last July. It was easier than my 2001 Blazer and if you want to see what PITA try pulling a tank on a 3rd Gen Camaro. Had to cut the exhaust and remove the panhard bars.

    What are you doing today?

    I got my son's wrecked Trailblazer to the body shop yesterday. Learned more about the platform from their tech. The frame is much stronger than the control arms in a wreck so it is very seldom hurt but the control arms bend like "butter". The truck will line up the toe with the new tie rod...
