    HAHAHA!!! The new slogan for the 401 Highway is "Life is too hectic...Slow down take the 401....Stay a while.....sit back and enjoy the multi million dollar digital traffic signs that only seem to state the obvious.....EXPRESS LANE MOVING SLOWLY OR STANDING......COLLECTOR LANE GOOOOD LUCK SUCKERS"....................I think they should convert the signs to TV Screens and hold a weekly raffle to raise money to fix the potholes with the winner getting the remote control for that week LOL!!!

    it wasnt our heat pump. we were trying to cut a tree off a roof w/o hitting that pump. i was on the roof, and got a saw stuck, so i was whittling away at the tree with another saw to get the first one out, and it was so rotten inside that it broke unexpectedly and the other guys didnt have the ropes tight. so it smashed it up real good.

    HAHA!!!! YES!!!! That is so hilarious! That's EXACTLY how it is. The more tabs you have open, the more power you have. Who knew Mozilla could be so powerful!!!!!! Well, once the brake issue is diagnosed, that will determine what I'll be doing to that truck (and it may not be pretty so you better close your eyes)!!!!!!!!!!!

Why won't my mustang just work!?

by Springthing on 11-07-2010 at 07:43 PM
So for the past year I've been having trouble with the mustang. It kind of sucks because that's my gas saver. It's a v6 mustang so it's good on gas.

The car started to lurch. The car started to stutter. The car started to hesitate on the road.

So after a little bit I got to being able to get the nerve up to fix what I thought was the issue. Plugs and wires.

So I did my plugs, my wires and I sat in the car and went for a short drive and POOF! it works

Uncategorized it's time to vent. Brakes on 1999 Suburban K2500. (Part 2)

by Springthing on 08-08-2010 at 01:52 PM
Friday morning I head up to the dealership. I have a few coffees in the waiting room and they come back, finally, with the fact that the ABS light is on because the front left (driver's) ABS sensor is out and needs to be changed out. But the whole assembly is one unit and needs to be changed out, along with the bearing thing..etc etc.

Until then, 'we can't bleed the brakes, the ABS system has to be full functional first'

They need to do both

Uncategorized it's time to vent. Brakes on 1999 Suburban K2500. (Part 1)

W. T. H?

I'm serious right now...wth is up with this stuff??

First, let me say....this is primarily me, venting. I've said most of this stuff before but now I need to get it all out.

I don't even know where to start.

I've had this Suburban for a few years. In that time I've had to replace the front pads four times. I've looked around, I've done some research, and I understand that the brakes for this truck aren't top notch. It won't stop

It's an engine SWAP! Laying the groundwork.

by Springthing on 07-30-2010 at 01:48 PM
More for my sake than anyone, I have decided to write a little about the 454 engine swap out of the 1999 Suburban. I won't be making a How-To, that's for sure, but it will be nice to chronicle the steps to getting a new motor in front of the truck.

I started by digging around a little, asking questions to people online, an engine builder in the area, and doing a little research.

With 205,xxx miles on the truck it's about time I just take care of the problem once and

Ultimate Truck Gear Rocker Pods - Real World Use Update!

by Springthing on 04-03-2010 at 10:21 AM
Weeeeeelll... it's been not quite a year since installing the Rocker Pods from Ultimate Truck Gear. Wow. Just... wow!

Florida.. Canada.. Vegas.. numerous trips to St. Louis, and countless local trips. I can only estimate but I believe I've gone about 20,000 miles since their installation last May(ish). If I went out side and cleaned them up with the hose right now - they would look like they were just installed yesterday. I kid you not!

They have gone through water,
