Cool that there's a kit. After watching the vid it would easily add a Snobear feature to the IceHawk (see my post in projects). I'm generally anti air suspension, but humm..
Do it!

Re: Oh Boy! What a deal!

If you click on the AE95G-CWMDH which is 1990-1995 they had adjustable suspension components. It also shows the diagram. Might be useful to retrofit? I will try and search again later today. The stock adjustable ride height systems in AE95's were notoriously prone to failures so while I agree they'...

Re: What have you done to your wagon lately?

I'd say it's ready for another 280K but what I thought to be an top knotch trans has an issue. I can hear a bearing noise when I let the clutch out while the car is in neutral. Bearing noise while the clutch pedal is out is from an input shaft bearing. Pilot bearings and throwout bearings spin when...

Re: 4th gear shifting issue

Where is the indicator for the fluid. I am guessing some sort of site glass which I am sure is covered in oil. To check the gear oil, you have to park the car on level ground and undo the 24 mm bolt just rear of the driver side CV axle. The bolt head is very shallow to be extremely careful not to s...

Re: 4th gear shifting issue

At the very least, you should check the trans fluid level. So into the snow with you, lol. Yes, any time there is grinding, it indicates something is wrong there and every time it grinds it will get worse. It must be avoided. It's likely either the synchros or the gear itself but I would still try g...

this might get me booted but...(subaru alert)

https://nanaimo.craigslist.org/cto/d/nanaimo-1987-subaru-gl10/7017589530.html I know, I know, it's a Subaru. I'm ready for the vitriol, lol. I don't see much value in this car (rusted through, auto trans) but I think the turbo is neat. Never heard of it on these cars before. Professor, you are the r...

Re: 1983 Original owner rebuild completion.

Wow, beautiful. And even after all those miles.

Was the car stored in a garage all its life, including from 2003 till you started rebuilding it?

Re: SR5 vs 2wd Part Compatibility

Side mirrors swap over but I think the mounting points for the seats is different because the floor pan for the 4wd has to accommodate the rear drive shaft. You could probably make it work though, others have swapped weird seats into T4's before, it just requires some modifications.

That's a good idea, I'll try melting the nylon with acetone next time.

Re: Intermittent Wipers..

Oh I don't know about that. I never used a puller, just pushed and pulled each side a few times. They take some oomph to do it but not that much.

Re: f#*%ing nylon locking nuts

On this particular car, the outer joint of the CV axle is in the way of removing the ball joint nut, which means the stud has to be lowered out of the taper to remove the nut. I generally like working on this car but this particular design stinks. Anyway, I wound up just cutting the stud just below ...

Re: Intermittent Wipers..

Sorry Chris, it's been a long time so I can't say for sure but I do believe it was the same size nut that holds the steering wheel on the trucks as the tercel. It was big, either 19 or 21 mm I think.
