    @dkvasnicka I've actually been really impressed with the mod potential of this little car. Out of the box capability is really pretty good... At least for what I'm likley to encounter. I've seen these Foresters, especially older ones like mine, with a couple of different styles of build...

    Moved on, but not moving away...

    I've decided that I'm done hiding myself... I'm a lesbian trapped in a man's body. *Phew!* Feels good to admit that! LOL! I bought a 2002 Subaru Forester last night. Deal was too good to pass up. Hardly any rust (in OHIO if you can believe that!) nearly perfect interior, no leaks or funny...

    Moved on, but not moving away...

    My 2002 LTZ has found her way to someone else's driveway... My time of ownership was great, and my old truck really didn't owe me anything. After about 18 months of ownership and 26k miles, I made the difficult decision to list and sell the old truck, as my needs have changed, and I was...

    Coolant Leak

    Following... Having the same issue on my TB, and noticed the coolant tank on my son's Silverado was empty the other day too. Actually, about 2 weeks ago, I went to add a little coolant to the bottle in my truck, and it came right out as though I poured it on the ground. Assumed my 14 year old...

    Minor complaint about parts counter folks...

    Well, yeah... Or that. Assuming she has the ability to operate the "search" function, and not just run through the drop down tables intended to make the parts counter people's jobs easier.

    Minor complaint about parts counter folks...

    It would seem that if you were able to locate the gasket on the company's website, and she wasn't able to locate it at the store, there must be a system operator error, and break down in training. Having applied for, and completed one local chain's "aptitude testing" and being turned down for...

    New Silverado Owner, got some issues that need sorting out

    Mixed bag on the alignment results. Camber and Toe came in just fine, but the Caster measurement on both sides is out of whack. Caster isn't a tire wear measurement though, and the truck goes straight down the road, so I think I'll not sweat it too much for now. Bought the Dorman wiper motor...

    Firearms

    I went back and forth between the Glock 19 and the Shield. Deciding factor was actually my wife... I told her once I get my CCW, if I'm not carrying it, it'll be at home with her, and I wanted to make sure that she could handle and control it. She's a small woman (4'11") and has small hands...

    Firearms

    So... After nearly 17 years of marriage, and growing my kids to 16 and 13, my wife has reconciled with her reservations about having a gun in the house. We've discussed at length the pros and cons of bringing a firearm into the house, and my wife has come around to my way of thinking. I've...

    New Silverado Owner, got some issues that need sorting out

    I've now replaced both front hub and bearing assemblies. Fortunately, I have access to a lift, and was able to get the truck up to where the front end is chest height. Passenger side appeared to have been done before, operation was still quite smooth, and the assembly popped out after a few...

    Say hello to Clifford! This was last weekend after my son and I put front hub and bearing assemblies in.

    4 Wheel drive issues

    Sucks about the wreck, but glad everyone was okay. Front axle disconnect is probably where the 4wd issue lies. If it isn't just the actuator, and you need to replace the actual disconnect unit, it'd be worth it to go ahead and replace the right front hub and bearing assembly while you're there...

    What's Your Dream Garage?

    Wow, there are so many! Winter/Inclement weather - I'll take my TB LTZ. Already a little rusty, but it runs good, and it wouldn't break my heart if somebody slid in the slushy stuff and hit it. Summertime 4wd - I'd love to have a 70 Blazer with the full lift off top, mild lift, 35's, and...

    A GM that's actually a Nissan...

    GM has been the king of "Badge Engineering" over the years. Our trucks are clear evidence of that, but it goes back many years. You can look at GM's A-Bodies; Think Chevelle/Malibu, GTO/LeMans, Cutlass, Skylark/GS. B-Bodies; Impala/Biscayne, Grand Prix/Catalina/2+2, Olds 88. G-bodies; Monte...

    Front hitch

    I think he's referring to the front bumper reinforcement... I wouldn't weld to that either though.

    Front hitch

    I would caution against welding in that area of the truck. The first 16.5 inches of the frame have corrugations, convolutions, and intentional holes that are designed to be crush/crumple zones in the event of an accident. GM sells a collision repair Front "half" frame replacement part to...

    How many miles have you got on your GMT

    My kid has my truck today, so I can't say exactly where we stand, but I know I recently rolled 175k.

    Midwest meet 2016 - need input!

    Do we have members in _ichigan? :uhno: How about a GMT360 homecoming in Moraine, Ohio? The plant isn't a GM facility any longer, but it'd be cool to see where our trucks were built.

    Looking for opinions on oil and oil filters

    I've changed over pretty much exclusively to full synthetic oils at this point. The first 5w whatever oil change I did, I kinda freaked a little bit at how thin the stuff was, and just can't imagine a conventional motor oil holding up. I do go back and forth on the high mileage stuff though...

    Midwest meet 2016 - need input!

    Chicago is obviously the largest city in the GMT Midwest Region, probably easiest to get the most people to. Personally, my preference would be a little further South and East, though. Only because I don't know if I could make a weekend out of it. Indy, Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton?

    Picked up another GMT!

    Weekends are pretty jammed up through middle July, but if there is one close enough to do a day trip, I'd definitely be interested. Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville... The boy maybe not so much, he's working on getting his first job lined up, and Saturdays and...

    He asked me last night if he could join a forum... I told him there was only one forum he needed to worry about. ;) I expect we'll be setting up a screen name and account before long.

    New Silverado Owner, got some issues that need sorting out

    Regarding the noise and ABS funkiness, I'm going to start with hub and bearing assemblies for the right and left. Watched a Youtube video, and was pleasantly surprised at how simple the replacement operation is compared to the GMT360. Have had pretty good luck with cheapo bearings in the TB...

    New Silverado Owner, got some issues that need sorting out

    If you check out my thread in the Pictures section, you'll see I just bought a Silverado RCLB that my son will be driving primarily. Before I'm willing to turn it over to him though, there are a few issues that I'd like to get sorted out first. 1) Three times today, all at low speeds, the...

    Picked up another GMT!

    I always liked that body style Dakota honestly, and to find one with low miles and a 318 was a bonus. I was a little hasty when I bought it though. Didn't ask enough questions of the guy. The guy we bought it from was the second owner. He bought it because he was renovating a house to move...

    Picked up another GMT!

    Lemme set the scene for you... My kid is 16. Just got his license a few months ago. Anticipating this monumental milestone in his life, my wife and I had managed to squirrel away a little bit of money to buy a third vehicle for the household. As homeowners, and parents of a 16 year old boy...
