    How about $650 for the LCAs with the Amsteer balljoints included? Would like to get these on to their next owner.

    Also have a K&N filter & filter retaining clips - $20

    There are a few options in constant torque / spring loaded / T-bolt clamps. I was a little time limited otherwise I might have explored them. Those can be pretty big and I don't think they would...

    I used a Tenhulzen 1100p caster/camber gauge. It's ok.
    There are several similar gauges on the market. You can use a ruler and a bob too.

    Many of...

    Strings kit is the BGR200. 3D models would not be of use as they are tailored for my aftermarket wheels & lugnuts. They attach to the lugnuts but with a ring that centers a multi-use pad to the...

    I completed a DIY 4 wheel alignment this summer, front toe/caster and rear toe/camber. There was some discussion in a thread I started here:

    Y-pipe hoses are silicone but the rest were not. Will switch back to quality rubber hose at the next water pump service though as I don't see the benefit and they can be more difficult to seal. The...

    From cold, for every second of operation, a functioning tstat increased engine temps 0.21 degF compared to the 25% slower stuck-open rate of 0.155 degF

    The great 2021 overheat event just keeps on giving!

    Less than a week before the Michigan fall drive I started to see coolant running down the front of the motor. USB borescope camera showed that...

    With 10 fingers you can count up to 1024 in binary. I do it all the time and am totally not a robot.

    PS please send me pictures of trucks, bicycles, and stop signs I can't figure those things out...

    CNFP1226 is not quite as wide as stock but works otherwise. You just need to DIY the mounting studs which is easy enough with long bolts & nuts. I've been running one since 2016 and works great for...

    I have a mix of the DPI LCAs but with KW suspension, but can answer these for you:


    I had the opposite experience - I'd done some paint touch-up with the previous LCA removed and had to remove...

    This is another place place where nylon screws are a useful replacement for the OEM bolts. I just R&R'd my washer tank this summer, replaced the corner fasteners with bolts but used nylon screws for...

    Interesting data point regarding accessories consuming about 8nm (6ft/lbs).
    I'm guessing that explains the sudden increase in torque at 4900 RPM :D

    I would think the appearance of the belt...

    Was the return loop still in place? Fuel pressure is created by restriction so if you have a leakdown between primary and return the whole primary side would read low.

    You should definitely...

    You can also leak past fuel the accumulator seal to the return line which would present similarly. That is, higher pressure at pump than at fuel distributor. This is a failure mode not discussed...

    Different case - solenoid noise causing false RPM readings. Also my own car with unshielded cable, added shielding and tuned the hardware noise filters.

    It's the OEM optional rack - I would rate it "ok". Has to come off to open the louvers. Fits in the trunk but a little awkwardly, the OEM kit comes with a hold-down clamp to keep it from rolling...

    Speaking from direct experience it may not be related to the VR input at all.

    A data log and a high speed sync error log would be the preferred place to start, so that the sync loss can be...

    Also 20-30 seconds is a strangely long period. Could it correlate with AC compressor, fans, or something else switching on & off?

    Something might be in the logs if you can post one.

    Also a resistor was required for some PCB revisions, wasn't it? The surface-mount type 3.57? Although this seemed to affect higher RPMs more than anything.

    But I agree, ensure the conditioner...

    I run a standard single 2" ear GM alt rather than the Saturn/Cadillac 2-ear design, so had to make something custom. The Drive Stainless tensioner wasn't quite in the right position to work with...

    That's what I'm doing LOL. Have two old spare belts in the jack storage area now, plus a new $3 just-in-case AC belt.

    I also built an improvised WP/ALT belt quick changer using an off the shelf...
