@  voightapproved : (22 November 2014 - 02:34 AM) So on my way to AutoZone, I was driving and all of a sudden my interior lights went out along with my taillights, kept driving because I had to be there before they closed. Then all of a sudden a bang and something flew off on the passenger side. Pulled over and my impala calipers hit my wheel weights and sent them into a million pieces. Figured I could limp it home considering it wasn't that far. Kept hearing this loud clunking, Made it back with a huge clunk as I came to a stop in the middle of the driveway. Jacked it up and took the wheel off, my caliper bracket bolt was gone and my caliper pin was almost backed all the way out. My caliper chewed a nice big scrape into my wheel. Any idea how a caliper bracket bolt falls out? and Any idea where I can find a new one?
@  EnderDRM : (22 November 2014 - 12:20 AM) I've seen spark plugs mounted on the exhaust. No idea how they fired them though.
@  BlackBetty : (21 November 2014 - 06:42 AM) takes some sort of high heat or ignition at the rear tail pipes to shoot flames
@  Sapias Lupus : (21 November 2014 - 05:11 AM) That actually sounds pretty cool, but then again that could be bad lmao
@  Timmy13091 : (21 November 2014 - 03:21 AM) Lol that means it had over 800hp yo..

@  BlackBetty : (14 November 2014 - 12:04 AM) Does anyone know if BadAzzRegalGSX does the tinted headlights with LEDS anymore? i sent him a PM but no reply yet
@  Vytasb : (13 November 2014 - 11:48 PM) The strut bar will fit. I have the same kit, but I already had a front brace, so I used the one that came with the kit on the rear towers.
@  Sapias Lupus : (13 November 2014 - 11:16 PM) Also Keith, will the front tower brace that comes with the kit fit our regals?

Going through the pulleys I have been trying to figure out where this annoying squeeking has been comming from. Well it came down to changing the tensioner pulley out and it didn't fix the issue so i now just replaced the alternator but it still didn't fix the issue =(. While I was installing the alternator I noticed that while putting pressure onto the idler pulley to remove the belt, I kept hearing the squeek again, so im going to go with the idea that the issue is the tensioner itself.

Does anyone know where i can get a good used one ? Maybe a member here may have one !!

And maybe a general walk through with installing the part, I honestly need to get this part replaced ASAP because im sick of hearing the squeek.

the idler is easy to replace, just remove it by removing the bolt on the face and put on the new one. First take the belt off by releasing the tension on the tensioner with a wrench. This will be a good time to put a new belt on, not absolutely necessary but its good piece of mind and cheap so might as well do it. there is a diagram of the belt routing on a sticker that is in the engine compartment. this will be handy when it comes time to put the belt back on.

when it comes to pulleys, i do not recommend getting a used one. they are cheap enough that a used one doesnt make sense. esp since you dont know how many miles the used one has, it can go any day. do it right or do it twice! check rockauto, i bet you find a brand new one just as cheap as a used one.

I also recommend replacing it asap. a squealing idler means failure is eminent, and if its the acc belt if that goes you lose power steering, water pump, and alternator. not something you want happening when you're on the road.
