The one Thing thats bugging me is what sounds like a loose belt but I'am fearing that its one of the pullies??? Anyone ever change any of the pullies?? My car has 330,000km on it....




Stuff I Need

Wheel bearing How often do you guys with moded suspensions change bearings??????

Steering rack Is it ok to buy a used rack or should I go new??

New cat back probaly cat also

Tires + 2 bent rims

Diff & tranny drive shaft seals

This is just some of the new problems I have an old list
to*mumble*

Another thing I dont get is my clutch slave is leaking its not even 3 years old???

I recently did a wheel bearing, i dont have a modded suspension thou.......as yet.

When my steering rack went i got a rebuilt one.....can't remember the price $200-300 i think.

I've done 2 wheel bearings in the past year, and I don't have a modded suspension.:(

Why do you want to replace your catback? its stainless steel isn't it? I love your exhaust...thats what I was thinking of getting.

Well I read up on the triflo before I bought it and every where I looked said that they rust at the welds within 2 years..... I have had mine for 5 or 6 years now and that was with 3 or 4 winters on it and the weld is starting to split... but it should last a while longer*th-up*

You should buy one:) HOW Much were the wheel bearings per side???

I think I paid about 220 for the front including labour, and the back one was a bit cheaper for some reason, I think it was about $175 including labour....not sure exactly, but I'm pretty sure it was around that. I would have to check my records.
