Re: Steering Gear Box leaking. . .

Good luck! Check your wheel bearings too, you might find one is now loose causing the steering wheel to be off.

Re: AC electrical help please...

32 psi static is too low.. Your system is basically empty. Gotta find the leak and repair. Then vacuum, and refill.

Your static pressure should match ambient temperature on your gauge. You will get that with just a few ounces, so 32 in texas is way too low!

Re: V8 Emissions Test

It did, but the limits are about three times as high with the V8... At least they make it easy, which was a surprise. But it was clean enough that if they thought it was still a V6 it would have easily passed too...

Re: Got control of my DRLs

Stan, I found this posted somewhere... Not sure if it works.. But it is definately something programmable, rather than having to physically rewire something. Begin with ignition off.

My last set of tires I got BFG 245/60/15s but I think it is too wide a tire for a stock wheel. Feels too loose, steering feels terrib...
