@  Vytasb : (30 March 2015 - 04:45 AM) I have UMI arms.
@  jawdog : (29 March 2015 - 08:41 PM) i though the rears are pre lubbed and sealed
@  Vytasb : (29 March 2015 - 06:06 PM) I ordered my rear end links from prime choice. I think they are made by Moog. They looked and felt the same as the set of moogs that I had that failed because I over-greased them and the seal popped (first time dealing with greasing stuff like that)
@  jawdog : (29 March 2015 - 02:49 PM) Has anyone bought any of the 2 for $50 rear wheel hubs off ebay. http://www.ebay.com/...ace6c10&vxp=mtr
@  BlackBetty : (27 March 2015 - 06:21 AM) Steering Wheel adapter FTW. Too bad I need to make a factory amp power toggle switch. Damn Parasitic draw destroys batteries otherwise in Az. Also I will take pics n post later when i sound dampen my trunk area for the subs
@  keithr182 : (27 March 2015 - 04:26 AM) @Sapias: you should get an adapter wired in! I have a kenwood headunit and subs and the works and paid $50 for an adapter so I can keep steering wheel controls.
@  Sapias Lupus : (26 March 2015 - 07:25 PM) Never even hooked them back, aftermarket head unit so they don't work, only ever thought about it for the lights LOL
@  keithr182 : (26 March 2015 - 04:39 PM) @scottydoggs - Thanks. Was thinking I'd have to pull the entire wheel off.
@  keithr182 : (26 March 2015 - 04:38 PM) @sapias Glad I'm on the only one! Did you remove the airbag to put them back in?
@  scottydoggs98 : (26 March 2015 - 03:43 PM) take the air bag off. all the room in the world
@  Sapias Lupus : (26 March 2015 - 02:00 PM) LOL @ what keith said, I did the same thing.
@  keithr182 : (26 March 2015 - 03:31 AM) Anyone have any tips on how to put the steering wheel controls back in after unplugging? Unplugged and removed when cleaning my steering wheel and now i cant get it back in!!!
@  Tobias05 : (25 March 2015 - 11:38 PM) I only use snap on brand now. If snap on kept my helos in the air then its good enough for my 13 yr old buick lol.
@  Tobias05 : (25 March 2015 - 11:37 PM) Used a new craftsman TQ wrench when I did my LS6 intake, had to torque the manifold like ten times before it finally passed a torque check.
@  BlackBetty : (25 March 2015 - 10:18 PM) also right side a HD model where as the left one is not? looking at part numbers on rockauto
@  BlackBetty : (25 March 2015 - 09:23 PM) so CV Half shaft assembly " Does Not Include Retaining Clip CV Drive Axle for Front Left; Any reason why?? is the retaining clip reusable perhaps?
@  Sapias Lupus : (25 March 2015 - 06:47 PM) Somebody have a PDF manual for the Aeroforce?
@  BlackBetty : (25 March 2015 - 07:41 AM) Sears has a digital click torque wrench for $110 that does ft lbs inch lb and micro newtons.. seems kinda spiffy
@  BlackBetty : (25 March 2015 - 07:35 AM) well sounds like ill need to buy or borrow a torque wrench then last one i bought snapped 3 supercharger bolts... still not happy bout that
@  phcdsqu : (24 March 2015 - 03:47 PM) Timken is highly rated, but far more important is getting the torque specs correct when installing new wheel hub.

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
or.
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
