    Redhead steering gear. Still have some wheel play 1995 e350

    Right! I did read that. I got distracted by the video showing you wiggling the wheel while driving down the road. Well if indeed there is a worn component you should be able to easily identify it using your method. Good luck sir and let us know what you find. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Redhead steering gear. Still have some wheel play 1995 e350

    That looks completely normal/perfect for a steering box. Curious what size tires you’re running? The taller the sidewall the more flex they have and will contribute to that soft or delayed steering feel. Cheers, Simon Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Most affordable, fuel efficient 4x4 set up

    We seem to be focused on brand new vehicles, $40,000 goes a very long way outfitting something used. I do love the idea of the well equipped Canyon and it’s cool 2.8 D-max option but the box might be a bit small... In my experience, two people and a small dog can fit cozily on the bench seat of...

    3rd gen 4Runner potential buyer. Advice needed

    ....yes, I totally agree you can check it like that if you are supporting the weight of the vehicle from the lower control arm, like with a floor jack and not letting the control arm just hang as when raised on a hoist. I also agree that there’s no worries running jobber rads, I have used them...

    I’d be looking at your rear control arm bushings. Sometimes they’ll get bad enough on one side that it feels like the asss end will shift to one side on accel and then back again in decel. Good luck Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    3rd gen 4Runner potential buyer. Advice needed

    If the price is good and it isn’t a rust bucket buy it, the rest is just parts as long as you are mechanically inclined enough to do the repairs yourself. I have three of them and love them all. The lower ball joints are not really a “weak” point but are typically overlooked because they’re...

    Guidance needed: ZJ or GMT360? (Jeep vs. GM)

    Ground clearance is an issue with Envoy/TBlazer platform. Very low slung frame. Also not a fan of the front axle running through the engine oil pan. IFS vs. SFA age old argument. As far as the Dana turdyfive goes, it’s more than reliable enough to stand up to a 31” tire. I ran one open with...

    I've done the 4" RE on two cherokees and had good luck with them. Never used the SB disconnects just took the bars off. Whichever you pick get with at least lower control arms, the factory stamped ones with fold up under repeated arcticulation stresses. And get complete rear leafs not just add a...

    Yeah, the stops are simply a nut welded in place on a bolt. One or two washers is usually all that’s needed to adjust. Pull the bolt out of the knuckle, toss on one or two washers, thread the bolt back in. Check tire clearance to frame at full lock... adjust/repeat. Sent from my iPad using...

    They’ll fit but on full compression you’ll be rubbing/peeling off the rear flares. The knuckles up front have steering stops, add a washer or two to keep the fronts from rubbing on full lock. Probably best (when budget allows) to get new 2-3” lift springs and shocks all around instead of spacers...

    What are some of the most reliable old vehicles?

    Quote “The 6.2 diesel is far more powerful and quicker than the 350 gas. The 350 might have a slight edge over the 6.2 in sheer top end speed, but I knida doubt it. Most square Suburbans in stock form top out around 100 mph. I’ve never tried to top out this particular gas Suburban, but the...
