    Allow me to reintroduce myself

    What's up? Founding member back from the dead for real, after more than ten years or sporadic posting. Finally got myself a piece of nostalgia. 03 TB LTZ, almost a match for the one that brought me to this community 15 years ago. It's rough around the edges, but I'm excited like a little kid and...

    Not a noob

    Wassup? Been a busy couple of years for me! New job, new divorce, new house, and just topped it off with a new truck. It was easier to let the 9-7x go than I thought. Looking forward to lifting the new girl. It's a 2011 GMC Sierra SLT 4x4 Extended Cab

    Collapsed a lifter and feeling out the options

    Ok....06 9-7x with the wonderful 5.3. Got a misfire on #6. Checked for spark and fuel and have come to the slightly educated conclusion that the intake lifter has collapsed. Sucks because I was going to order my tune this week. So now I have to repair it first. With only 85k, do you think it's...

    Manually shift the transfer case

    Ok, my AWD is acting up. It started binding a couple months ago. I got it to disengage and pulled the plug on the encoder motor. Ran fine since then but I did need a new hub. Just replaced that and the sensor. Hooked up the motor to test and it engaged after a few turns...can't get it out of awd...

    Converting rear suspension to coil spring

    I really don't see this discussed a lot. I'm curious what springs people have used to keep close to stock stance while converting from air ride. Pretty sure the 9-7x sits lower than a stock tb. I don't want my ass in the air for all to see.

    The fates have smiled upon me. Behind the wheel of a GM again.

    My wife's car finally wanted to start acting up too much. I gave her the explorer, cleaned her car up and sold it. Promptly found this 95 Jimmy. It needs a couple things, but is in fabulous shape. I've always wanted another s series since I got rid of my first blazer 10 years ago, so I'm super...

    Sorry dudes, I got a Ford...

    My Tahoe was gonna blow and I needed something quick. I traded for a Honda and then for a 2000 Explorer 5.0 AWD. Yeah, it's a Ford. But it has some balls and isn't too bad looking. Right now it's on stock rear shackles with the front torsions turned down, might add 1" blocks. Upgraded to 16"...

    Help your friendly moderator choose a path.

    As some of you may know, I bought an s10 a couple of months ago. It's a 98 rcsb with the 4.3 and a stick shift. I got it for $1500(got ripped off, but it was a dealer so it was expected). I have since put about $750 worth of parts into it, plus my time. It still needs some work, but that is to...

    It's been a long time coming. I have gone back and forth for a couple of years now, but today I finally pulled the trigger. Traded my 2002 Trailblazer LS for a 98 S10 LS. It is a standard cab/short bed with a 4.3l V6 and a 5 speed manual. I have been looking for that drivetrain combo for a...

    Here is an interesting stalling problem.....

    I was coming home...driving angry and had my foot in the pedal. Got to @ 70 in 2nd...yeah, not that impressive. I let my foot off to down shift and to coast to a reasonable speed. It was at that time the engine shut itself off. I don't quite remember the RPMs. I thought it was really odd and I...

    Looking at some S-Series vehicles.

    Trailblazer is paid off and I am ready for a change. Actually, I have been ready for a change for a while now. I have decided 2 things. I want something better on gas and I don't want another car payment. That leaves me looking at S10s and imports. The problems I have with the s series are the...
