Re: 1999 Astro LT, Lowered 4" cash or trade.

I sold the van about 6 month ago, the guy dumped a bunch of money into it, but now he bought a new truck for work... I am sure he is negotiable!

I am still around, I still browse the site for 4.3 info every now and keep an eye on you guys from a distance :D

1999 Astro LT, Lowered 4" cash or trade.

Hey Guys, Long time no talk, I need this van out of my way! I have owned this van for five years, as much as I would love to keep it around, I have no need or space for it. It was really nice at one time but needs a little TLC now. Runs and shifts great, needs new shocks. It has never let me down. T...

Re: what's it worth?

I would not consider that high mileage, that is only 27K /year... I still think it is a little high with the soft market... maybe $2500... there will always be others

Re: Rust problems on Toyotas...

this was part of the frame rot recall. toyota was cutting checks of the 'value when new' to the current owner if it was one of the rotted frame trucks. they all went from the dealers, or toyota canada, sold to the wreckers to be parted out for a whopping $200 each. they are not to be repaired or re...

My buddy has an excellent shape 99 astro AWD at his shop. bottom end is gone in the 4.3, van is loaded with leather and very minimal surface rust. would be a great candidate for a V8 or diesel swap not sure on the final price yet, most likely between $600 band $1000 would take her. The Van is locate...

I have not really measured under the hood of he astro, but m...

Re: Ok i'm on crack....

The problem is that no body is buying anything right now... I know of five or 6 companys that have fleets of 30+ vans and are only using half of them, but can not get rid of the extras..

Re: Gear prices

I think the 4.10s might be overkill if you are doing most of your driving without a trailer... I have 3.73's in my van and they have plenty of power, really you could propably leave it the way it is and not notice that much of a difference, I think the noticable difference would be in suspension upg...

Re: Set of Impala SS rims and tires for sale(Toronto)

Nothing is selling right now, nobody is spending any money.... I still drive it once or twice a week, but it is hard to justify paying the insurance for that :poke: I am sure the van would be easier to sell if it was stock height, but I do not care enough to go threw that much trouble for what I am ...

Re: Why does the sprinter get better mpg?

I still mantain that for bang for your buck you can not beat a 3.0L mercedes 5cyl from an older 300d for the money.... if you search you can pick up a good runner for cheap and they are super reliable... the 20 year old motor has no problem turning the 38" swampers on my toyota and still averages 18...
