Re: Front Sway Bar / Bushing Question

If it was able to spin when first installed, it could be that the bushings somehow shrunk maybe due to the cold during the winter? Otherwise, put some more grease. If new grease doesn't help, time for new bushings again.

Re: Grrr, I topped off my raditor with drinking water by mistake

That sucks, I wouldn't fret too much though, small enough amount.

Re: Front Sway Bar / Bushing Question

Did you grease the bushings when you installed it?

Re: Help removing rear shock bolts

Nice work! Which Metabo tool did your neighbor have? Don't forget to share pics of the newly installed shocks for us.

Re: Help removing rear shock bolts

I know what you're trying to do there with the bolt head as I've tried that method myself. The bolt head can be broken off(with a long enough breaker bar and extension) or cut off(very slowly like you said), the issue I ran into before is that there will still be some threads still in the shock moun...

Re: Armada rear springs or Rancho spacer?

I'm not quite sure if you'll have rear camber issues since I didn't go that route. Palmerwmd did go the Armada springs route months ago and I think he didn't run into any rear camber issues. I'll let him chime in to confirm though. If you want level, I wouldn't even raise the rear as there's already...

Re: Help removing rear shock bolts

You're brave to use a hack saw, I would have went with the cheap $20 sawzall from Harbor Freight with Diablo blades from Home Depot and cut the shock off in 30 seconds. Either way, you're in the hole now. It's been a while since I've looked at my rear suspension to see if there's enough room for a s...

Re: Squirrel nest inside my HVAC!

Man I hope you get your rodent issue worked out. Is there some sort of rodent bomb you can bomb your interior with? If I get frustrated enough, knowing myself, I'd hook up a hose from my tail pipe into the cabin and seal up the interior as air tight as possible and kill any rodents with exhaust fumes.

Re: My first truck

Very nice truck, but man, 33 gallons. That would set me back roughly $160 for a fill up every time here in CA.

Re: Pathfinder Awnings

Friend of mine has the ARB awning on his Landcruiser. It works and looks well made.

I will eventually look at getting one too, but I may hold off, now that the new Ford Bronco is out...it's calling my name.

Re: Armada rear springs or Rancho spacer?

No wrong or right. Just depends what you're looking to do with your vehicle. If you want looks, go with the spacer. If you want something that performs better than factory, go with the Armada springs. Both are inexpensive so even if one doesn't work out, try the other.

IF all of that fails, I would use a Sawzall with a metal blade and cut them off. That's what I had to do. I went to AutoZone and bought new bolts.
This is the solution^^^^. Don't waste time and money pb blaster, impact wrench, or breaker bars.

Re: 2008 good battery no dash lights won't start

Glad you figured out the issue. As for the leak, the only thing I can think of is your rubber seal around the door window or the windshield. Perhaps sunroof seal too?
