My New Whip

Two-owner 2002 and garage kept all the way. Looks almost new. Front tires are wearing unevenly, so it might need some front end work.

Re: My New Whip

New tires and an alignment. Tires were not cheap. Fortunately, the front end was good to go.

Re: My New Whip

Those are nice looking tires. And I'll bet they weren't cheap. Tires are expensive but it's the price of safety.

My Corvette was making a bumping noise when you turned the wheel sharply and I thought the worst, but new tires and alignment cured it.

Sharp Blazer!!!

Re: My New Whip

I just replaced the driver door hinge bushings and it was harder than I expected. The detent spring is a SOB to get out even with the tool. Also, the new bushings are fragile and the pins need to be installed carefully rather than just tapped back in without perfect alignment. Pins prelubricated too.

The first time I did it I knocked the pins down with the hammer and busted one of the bushings. Back to O’Reilly I went and you can’t just buy one bushing. Worse yet you have to take both pins back out to replace the broken bushing and jack up the other bushings.

Anyone replace the front crank seal in the 4.3? I noticed that I have some oil leaking at the front of the engine. Going to try to figure it out but the main seal is apparently a common issue on this motor

New stereo is on the way!

Thank you. I do have quite a few cars. Too many. I have sort of an addiction to them.

I also have too many ex wives and like the cars they try their best to leave me penniless.
