Re: Inner CV joint boots slinging grease.

On S10 diff drops, the top mount is cut off the differential and a longer mount bolts onto the side plate cover on the driver's side of the diff. For the passenger side mount, an angled spacer is used. http://blazerforum.com/forum/attachments/builds-48/11790d1359300076-xtrmes10-97-zr2-blazer-build-i...

Re: New aftermarket headlights installed.

Installing HID or other lighting in a reflector housing designed for halogen usually yields poor results and is especially bad for oncoming traffic or cars in front of you. Have you aligned your headlights post lift? I tend to stick with OEM as aftermarket housings can be all over the place. You can...

Re: Inner CV joint boots slinging grease.

Those Bilstein 5125 are more of a universal shock but they are listed as fitting some old Jeeps and Toyota Land Cruisers. http://cart.bilsteinus.com/productsearch/33-062518 http://cart.bilsteinus.com/productsearch/33-185552 The 4600 and 5100 are very similar internally and with your body lift setup,...

Re: Source front sway bar bushing kit

You're welcome. Do you have any torsion lift? If not, the end links may be a bit long but you could always cut them down. I wrapped a bit of teflon tape (yellow gas) around the swaybar and greased with Super Lube w/Syncolon grease I ordered from Napa for polyurethane bushings. The tape supposedly he...

Re: Source front sway bar bushing kit

AWD swaybar is 30mm and after I cranked torsion bars the Moog Problem solver end links and bushings didn't hold up that well so I went with Energy Suspension 9.5171 30mm (1 3/16") greasable bushing kit and longer 9.8167 Adjust-A-Link end links that come with two size bushings so I could fine tune th...

Re: Inner CV joint boots slinging grease.

I went with new from Advance Auto, GSP brand label (?) because of lifetime warranty and online promo code. Ihatemybike, I think mentioned the possibility that some aftermarket cv axles could potentially be slightly shorter in overall length than originals so something to consider/check maybe. The fr...

Re: Inner CV joint boots slinging grease.

One of mine did that after the torsion lift and I just used a hose clamp as a temporary fix and replaced both cv axles not long after. I kept the original to rebuild which I haven't gotten around to yet.

How about some info on the Bilstein 5100's I see there. Which ones did you go with?

Re: How to wire up a NP 236 in place of a 136.

Yes, sort of. The stock NV136 transfer case is a single speed, electronically controlled (on-demand) AWD system. The NV236 is a two-speed transfer case which normally operates in Auto 4WD mode, just like the stock NV136 but also allows for push-button shifts into 4HI / 2HI / 4LO. So really, the best...

Re: Ka-Thunk goes the '04 AWD?

With a misfire/P0300 code, the PCM won't command TCC apply so that is perhaps what you were feeling.

If you get the rapid 'check engine' light flashing, you should stop driving and resolve the issue as that is indicating a serious misfire condition that can damage the engine.

Re: 235/85/R16

No problem. I've been considering 1" - 1.25" hubcentric bolt on spacers for some time to widen the track a bit to offset the lift somewhat. With quality hubcentric spacers I don't see there being any issue as I prefer factory wheels over aftermarket.

Re: Still Crow Hopping

There is indeed a front diff drain plug, both my '97 and '04 have one - driver's side just below the side cover plate.

Re: Still Crow Hopping

Transfer case is next to transmission, fill plug and a drain plug, don't overtighten, Auto Trac II fluid. Front differential is at the front and same deal, just fill and drain plug with (usually) reusable nylon washers, no gaskets. 75w90 or 80w90 gear oil, I use a long tube attached to the gear oil ...

Re: Still Crow Hopping

Yeah, should really change the Auto Trac II fluid in the transfer case once, maybe twice.

I don't think you'd see enough of a fuel economy improvement to justify changing the gears.
