    Is a power steering fluid bath bad for my truck?

    I was surprised it has a steering fluid cooler. I always assumed that cooler was for the transmission. Is it common for vehicles to have steering fluid coolers? It doesn't seem like the kind of fluid that would tend to get all that hot. Unless maybe if you were driving around a race track all...

    Is a power steering fluid bath bad for my truck?

    Turns out the line into my steering fluid cooler had rotted. Last night it started gushing fluid. But today after getting it repaired fast, I looked around and noticed small puddles everywhere i had been parking lately. And the bottom of the truck is covered in the fluid. So again I dropped it...

    What's the deal with Steering Racks?

    From research I did many years ago, what I recall is that there were three different steering racks avaialble. One for the short wheelbase TB. Another for the EXTs that has a faster turn rate. And another with an even faster turn rate for the SS. I have a short wheelbase TB and you have to...

    OBD Fusion + Bluetooth Scanner = Pretty Neat!

    Well thats good to know. The lighter plug has also screwed me over. Before I installed real heated seats, I had a heated seat pad that would stay running when I got out of the truck and sever times I'd go to leave work appointments and nada. I was very tempted to do some custom wiring to make...

    Why? Isn't the alignment just using the external adjuster?

    OBD Fusion + Bluetooth Scanner = Pretty Neat!

    QUESTION: Are any of the pins on this connector powered when the car is off? My battery has been weak since getting this device. I had left it plugged in since I got it. I'm wondering if it's a coincidence and my battery is dying, or if this device is draining my battery.

    LED & Other Headlight Upgrades Besides HID Retrofit?

    The drama continues. I did my test fit install today and no light. So with some short wires I fished them into the plugs and come to find out both lights have the polarity reversed. I connected all the reds to reds and black to blacks. So I guess either GM or the company that makes this LED...

    LED & Other Headlight Upgrades Besides HID Retrofit?

    The slow crawl of progress continues. I soldered up the connectors so i can plug in and unplug the H1 bulbs. I physically installed the projectors, which wasn't easy because the threaded shaft of the projectors really isn't long enough but i jammed it all in there. After some testing, I'll be...

    Do anyone have the pinout of the main headlight connector on the back of the lens? That will be helpful for testing if I get things connected today.

    LED & Other Headlight Upgrades Besides HID Retrofit?

    Any suggestions on where to find these countless styles of connector available? Sadly radio shack is no more, I can't think of any other local store that would have connectors like this. Regarding the high beam shield, something like an audio headphone jack would be perfect for fishing through...

    LED & Other Headlight Upgrades Besides HID Retrofit?

    Trying to make some progress here. I looked over everything and I see I need a connector to make the connection in figure A. I don't want to just solder them directly, I want a connector so I can remove them if needed down the road. Plus the pins on the LED bulb don't fit into the socket in...

    Confirmed, 6 pins. The rest of the conversation so far, I don't really understand at all :D

    It's a 2008. I'll try to snap a pic of the port next time I go somewhere.

    OBD Fusion + Bluetooth Scanner = Pretty Neat!

    I picked up a $35 bluetooth scanner on amazon, and I bought the $10 ODB Fusion app on the iOS app store. It's pretty cool. I like how I can make my own little mini dashboards. I've been playing around with all the PIDs. Many work, like speed, instant fuel-economy, throttle position etc. Many did...

    LED & Other Headlight Upgrades Besides HID Retrofit?

    Well that was disappointing. I installed my Sealight LED high beam bulbs from amazon today and they don't seem any brighter at all compared to factory high beams. They may even be dimmer. When I'm up close to something, it does seem to light it up brighter. But there doesn't seem to be enough...
