Re: Strange steering/suspension issue

So, I thought i had solved the issue but it appears not. Have a suspicion that the problem is far worse than merely an issue with components in the suspension. Suspect the body shell is suffering from severe metal fatigue. Have compared my car to my wifes white TE, and Jonno was kind enough to check...

Re: Strange steering/suspension issue

No spare rack to throw in but i think i may have possibly solved it. Jacked the car up and on full extension heard a giant twang. Poking around and it appears even with the shortened gabriels in the front the spring was just loose enough to slip out of the seat and become wedged.

Re: Strange steering/suspension issue

Steering coupling bushing and so the steering coupling is possibly hitting on the cross member? Also been done; all bolts are still present and not showing signs of failing. Tyres are less than 20k also - basically i replaced everything in the front end except rack bushes because the set i bought w...

Re: Strange steering/suspension issue

Admittedly that was my first thought as well. Although theyve been changed I cant rule them out completely until i get the front end in the air and lever on the arms/check for play but it definately feels like something is binding. Theres also evidence the swaybar has hit the sump at some point whic...

Strange steering/suspension issue

Fellas, My poor old sedan has been forced back into daily drive duties and has recently developed a frankly bizzare issue thats driving me mental. Its developed a loud intermittent knock in the front end which usually occurs when at lock/exiting a driveway. Also exhibits weird steering behaviour - s...

Re: Need Piazza Turbine inlet gasket cheap?

f*#k that would be absolutely painful. Would punching it out of the graphite style material like the exhaust gasket flanges not be an option?

Re: Torque tube

Get it sleeved with chromolly tube. Cant remember the exact dimensions of material or grades but basically disassemble torque tube, slip chromoly tube over shaft, weld it, reassemble.

Re: Wrecker Part list for EFI

Yep, if you look in the right places there are bargains to be had - i picked up an EMS Stinger for $400 so there are decent ones out there. The only thing id avoid is a Microtech and thats mainly because you are stuck with whatever trigger/ignition setup is coded onto the ecu. Cant just select anoth...

Re: Wrecker Part list for EFI

Its hard to say which bits to get without 100% knowing which ECU you will be using. I dont know enough about the Delco/Kalmaker stuff to comment on wether or not it can do COP/Waste spark and which trigger arrangements it can use. My advice would be to honestly ditch the Delco and get an aftermarket...

Re: Can this 4zd1 crank be repaired???

Hard to say without seeing/measuring. May be as simple as machining it up to the next size thrust washer. Technically you can get it welded and machined but cost goes up pretty quickly doing it that way
