    One area of brakes that many overlook is the o-ring around the caliper piston and corrosion on the piston. Check the rubber boot around the piston and it should be free of cracks and soft, not hard...

    I didn't know that the steering box was changed out previously and that's the problem. Since the mechanic recommended Moog pitman arm, maybe the box is made by Moog. (?)

    I was referring to that one or more brakes might be dragging or hung up even though they were not being activated. In large trailers most have electric brake activated by a signal (voltage) from the...

    Check if the trailer has brakes. If it does or does not, jack up the axle(s) anyway and give the tires a spin.

    Where's the beef? With computer controlled everything, the 02 sensor helps the system to adjust the fuel mixture, timing and who knows what else. Removing them will only let you burn more fuel,...

    If the engine seems tight, no blue exhaust and no use of oil it probably is a good engine. It was just my experience. After you replace the cat I'm sure there is a shop that can do an exhaust...

    No matter what you do for a new cat, it may also plug up or fail for the same reason as why it failed now. #1 enemy for cats is raw gas and or oil burning in the combustion chamber. As with any...

    If you want a taller tire then you move up but if you want a wider tire, 265 vs 285 you need to change the aspect ration to keep the tire diameter about the same. To go to 285 it should be 285/55/18...

    McClintoc is correct. Let end these claims about Nitrogen but change it to what Nitrogen does for you.

    By magic the reading came down and it now reads usually 1-2 PSI higher than the others. A day later I checked all tires with a a dial gauge and had all of them reading the same PSI by removing or...
