Thanks, is there a better option between the two? I don’t mean to sound cheap but I’d rather do one of the two rather than go crazy with every possibilty. I measured my height and it seems level so I don’t think I have any sag but any help would be good to keep it that way. I know it may be ha...

What is more important

I am changing out my shocks soon with Bilstein HDs.. but recently realized that I do a lot of back country trail driving and use a lot of logging roads. These roads gets destroyed by 18wheelers and are full of ruts and potholes. My question is.. are shocks enough? By that I mean, if I were to replac...

Bug defelctor pictures ?

Does anyone have a preference on a front bug deflector ? I see stock pictures but never one on an r51. If you have a picture i would appreciate it. I want the smallest profile i can while still being effective; i have a ton of little chips on the hood that i want to minimize.

Well that makes this a little tougher decision. I was hoping i could just buy the strut and replace it myself and get out the cheapest route but no matter what I am going to have to pay someone to install this anyway.. so based on RockAuto current prices, i have three options: 1. Bilstein front stru...

Anyone run this setup?

I have 265/70/17 tires on stock height and want to run 6mm (1/4") all around. Has anyone ever done this before ? Anyone have a picture of something similar ? I know its not a lot, but for $40 for all four, why not ? I was going to get the spacers, not adapters, just to take a little bit of the hugge...

OK that's good to hear, I did a quick search and all I got was the complete coil and spring together. I just looked again on RockAuto and did find other options, thanks i thought i was missing something. I don't want to deal with compressing the springs and so id like the option that involves not to...

front struts

Can i buy just the strut itself or do i have to buy the entire coilover piece as one ? I found struts online for just the strut part without the coil, but i had always thought it was a one piece option.

*edit* I am not looking for a lift, just standard height.

Small dent repair

Can anyone help me with how to get under the hood to repair this dent ? I have seen some videos of going underneath the hood and using a tool to pop out the dent. This is a nickel size ding, not even a real dent, so i am sure i could pop it back with my finger.. Local shop wanted $100! but i cant se...

sorry i have been out of town.. I did change the oil before i left. Everything looked fine with the filter seal and no visible issues with anything around the assembly either. Obviously i cant tell what the assembly seal looks like without taking the assembly apart, but nothing out of the norm just ...

ok i know this topic is getting old but i am loosing it with this car. I checked the oil before i did anything, dip stick was at zero. I think maybe there was a tiny tiny bit at the bottom which i took for some residual from the tube. Anyway i went to dump whatever small amount of oil that was left....

Well I got a new filter and oil and we will see how this goes first. If it keeps leaking then I'll do the ring, I'm just hoping it's not that so I don't have to do to :) On a side note.. I bought a big jug of high mileage 5w30 mobile 1, I thought I had a quart of the same at home but it's regular 5w...

Thanks a lot. I just saw the replies but will look it up today at work. A couple this I noticed yesterday though.. There were three separate small areas of oil laying in the driveway. I would belive that is from different spits I parked the car, not that all three leaked at the same time. Although I...
