    Golhock, you could also reuse your front control arms, replace the bushings with Energy Suspension polyurethane (black OR red) and install new ball joints. That's more economical, just more...

    $360.79 per shock on RockAuto for genuine front shocks. You can get a code for 5% off easily (PM me if you need one) and that usually covers shipping. No tax. If you want to spend more, go for it.

    I have a WindRestrictor brand deflector, just plain glass, but tinted. I guess it makes some difference, but it's not huge, to my estimation.

    There are a couple of downsides: You can't reach the...

    My tee fell apart when touched. Mine was located just to the driver's side and just rearward of the radiator, clipped to the radiator trim. I had, as LongTall mentioned, two options. Because I was...

    I'd A) Check all the fuses, then B) try replacing the socket and the lighter element. I've seen the sockets burn out on other vehicles from too many amps being drawn through the circuit.

    I've put over 1500 miles on during my current road trip. In all highway driving, I averaged 26.7 mph, per the DIC. I did get a check engine light, but it turned out to be P0455 and was due to a bad...
  12. Installed Volant "Cool Air" Intake - 2004 XLR

    Not sure why, but the Volant cross reference for our cars excludes the 2004 model year. Rest assured, it fits. I installed mine last night and everything fits and functions as advertised. First...

    I got new bulbs from Amazon. Be sure to buy genuine Philips bulbs. There are a lot of cheap fakes out there. I think mine were around $40 each.

    My lenses are so "melty" inside where the stock bulb was at that a switchback bulb probably would not look good in white in DRL mode. The burned plastic makes it work well for amber, however.

    I used LED bulbs and I did not need resistors as they do not hyperflash. Apparently all the washers stayed in place. And I just used single color bulbs.

    Unless the motor sounds slow, I'd suspect the hydraulic system. More likely might be the declining pressure in the system due to wear in the pump or blockage in lines. You might try a boat repair...

    A brass tee would likely work just fine, but it has to be 3/8" across the two opposing sides and 1/4" at the cross of the tee.
