    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Looking for rear bumpers. Shoot I can buy a brand new stock equivalent for under $300 shipped to my door. Doing this repair for <$500 should be easy. Just the weather sucks for it. I still need to track down my front end clunk/vibration noise. Just have not had time to get under there and take...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Got the estimate for the truck yesterday. $2700 ish. Pretty sure I can fix myself for $500 or less because I see no need to put all that effort and money into a full body work and respray of the bedside that is rusting over the wheel well anyway. Shop will need to fix the exhaust but the rest I...

    What are you doing today?

    Called other guy's insurance company again and this time for something scheduled for tomorrow to get the truck looked at. Not sure why I had to do the follow up instead of them calling me.

    Whistles while I brake.

    You master may have leaked onto/into the booster and that brake fluid will kill those diaphragms. Might also not be the master itself but just a bad cap leaking (that happened to my brother's old Ford Escape).

    Trailblazer coming back... sort of...

    My mom has a Trax and she really likes it. Small and she can fit it in tiny places, but it is taller so she can see better plus can get in and out of it really easily compared to a car. No way she'd have an easy time getting out of a vette. So far it has been a good car but she got it brand new...

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    I was going to say, why not just a capped pipe that slides inside another pipe and use a simple exhaust clamp to hold the adjustment?

    Amazon or Rockauto returns

    No I did not. It was clearly stamped Moog also. This was several years ago now, not sure if all Advance stores would do that or not.

    Amazon or Rockauto returns

    Some parts can have warranty done elsewhere. I had a Moog part warrantied thru Advance even though I didn't buy it there originally. Not sure if the local store was just being friendly or if this is standard as they're a Moog distributor or what.

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Got rear ended tonight. Silverado 1 Avenger 0. Need my tail pipe fixed, bumper fixed/replaced, and that corner of the box straightened a bit so I can open the tailgate again. The guy's hood, fender headlight, core support are all screwed and I wouldn't be surprised if his radiator is bent (not...

    2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer 4x4 LS 4.2 (rear end size)

    If it is a 4.2L short wheel base, it is an 8.0 from the factory. If it is a long wheel base or a 5.3L, it is an 8.6 from the factory. The cover is a bit deeper on the 8.6, and there's an extra gusset on the pumpkin of the 8.6 but I can't remember exactly where. I should have taken a picture...

    Which AC Delco Coil Pack?

    Oil is not a conductor so it will never result in a short. I had water short my #4 coil a few times. Somehow it (or any others) never died in 315k miles and 14 years.

    Vortec 4200 swap into a Checker cab part 1

    You'd think if they were so prevalent of an issue we'd know all about them between here and the old site.

    Vortec 4200 swap into a Checker cab part 1

    Maybe he did see them split length wise. After he sawzalled them. The worst head issues on this platform have been what, a few burned valves here and there and couple vvt phaser problems? Nothing that screams crap because you'll always have a few break things.

    What are you doing today?

    Got new drugs because I had bad reactions to the one they gave me the first time. The lightheadedness was only a part of it. Hopefully these sit ok and still do the job. But right now my hands are itching like mad due to hives.

    NEED HELP Exhaust drone

    J pipe is probably the way to go (or an oem muffler). Was going to do that on my truck but never got around to it as it hasn't bothered me enough.

    What are you doing today?

    Their shipping estimator has always been a little off and weird until you actually put your address in. Then it gives you the actual final amount. At my old place the shipping originally would estimate higher with just ZIP until I put in the shipping address, then the final options and prices...

    What are you doing today?

    Was going to go back to work as last night was feeling pretty good overall. Then I couldn't sleep for anything. Ok. This morning about blacked out. Oh, side effects of the drug they put me on. Well that's just awesome.

    What are you doing today?

    Day 3 of sick. Yesterday was the worst. 103 temp, gut and low back sore, head feeling like a vise and someone had their thumbs jammed behind my eye sockets. Went to doc and they suspect kidney infection. Well just great. Got a prescription for an antibiotic. Hopefully knocks that out, and...

    NEED HELP 2006 Envoy Denali - ABS activates on every stop

    My experience was when that started happening the hub ABS sensor and or ring was to blame. Problem went away when I put new hubs on when they failed.

    Issues with removing water pump

    I got lucky, borrowed the tool from a friend and mine popped off right easy when I was fixing my AC pulley bearing years ago. I did about cross thread it a billion times putting it back on. Why they used such fine threads I'd like to know...

    Cardone Select CV Axle Quality Gone Bad??

    I put lots of miles on my Cardone axles on my TB without a single issue. Maybe they've cheapened... but so far the Cardone axle on my Silverado is doing good.

    I6 performance issue

    You can get a Moog or Mevotech for around $50 or ACDelco for $80 ish from Rock Auto or Amazon. I would suspect the dealer would want north of $100 given historic pricing structures at those places.

    I6 performance issue

    I wouldn't buy a salvage yard one with how relarively cheap they are brand new. I had to replace both of mine a year or two apart from each other when I had my TB.

    Another HID Thread! This Time with LT Lenses.

    If you put mini h1s in thevhigh beam you'll need to open the bulb hold a little for the shaft to fit thru (9005 has a slightly smaller duameter than 9006) and also if you use the mini gatling shroud it will hit the trim bezel inside the headlight. I opted to trim that bezel instead of the shroud...
