Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

This is my first post. Yesterday I changed out my Left and Right wheel speed sensors on my 97 Suburban 2500 454. Under low speeds the ABS would come on and you would get the pulsating effect. Today I need to find out why oil is leaking down from right side of the motor and dripping off the right front axel

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

Changed oil and filter, rotated tires, bled brakes, and shot some black rubber undercoating-in-a-can into the visible areas in my rear wheelwells. Looks much better above my rear tires. Oh, and it stops better too.

Just finished up with oil and filter change. Debated a tire rotate but the heat outside won. Just below 100 deg and no breeze. Nah... it can wait.

same reason aint nothing getting done to mine LOl.

I need to reinstall my rear tires, torque the lugs all around, torque the axle nuts up front, grease the idler and pitman arm, set toe, and other crap I'm sure I'm forgetting, but too hot.

Used a toothbrush and 409 to clean up door hinges. I like clean door jams.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

put my rear tires on, torqued all four wheels down, torqued the front axle nuts, changed the idler arm grease fitting to a 90 degree one, greased it and the pitman arm, reinstalled my skid plates. Also painted the center of my ds front wheel silver, I don't have the center cap for it so now it doesn't look as bad or as noticeable being painted.

Re: What did you do yo your truck today??

started on my door pins today what a pain!!!!!!


whoever welds the pins to the hinge had better stop it, or at least scrap the vehicle when you get done, cuz if I run into it again that's what I'll do, scrap it then beat somebodys head. How stupid.

and no it wasn't like oobs/squarebody 73-87's with the little wedge pieces crimped or whatever from factory, same for s-10's this was a spot weld. Top and bottom.

The PS has clips. I hope it's easier.

I got em, about 5-6 hrs. a blister on each hand, and worn out shoulder and body, with my hammer, chisel and grinder I got em out. Grinder was for sharpening my chisels, couldn't get anything in that tight opening.
