I think he was suggesting that most of the time when driving on the street, the RPMs are usually down in the low to mid range. Of course we all get on it every now and again, but I bet most of us...

The stock diff for a 328 with a manual trans is a 2.93:1 non-lsd unit. It took me about three hours to swap my lsd in. Wasn't super strenuous doing it on jack stands, but of course a lift is the...

Don't do any work at all until you've had the frame straightened. There is NO point to bolting/welding new parts onto a twisted frame. It will cost thousands to perform this work. We've discussed...

Yeah, me too. I had a caliper piston get stuck so badly in my Maxima that it actually boiled the brake fluid and caused the pedal to go straight to the floor in city driving... Yikes!

It just pops right out. No need for tools or the removal of any other pieces. Keep trying. ;)

Aside from sticky caliper guide pins, it could also be a seized caliper piston. It's super easy to determine if it's a sticky caliper, however - just drive the car and then quickly touch each of the...

Very high likelihood of it being a dead battery. Take it to an auto parts store and have it tested.

Needing new pads & rotors aside, I don't see how replacing those items could help anything. If it was brake related, the noise would be due to a stuck caliper rather than anything to do with the...

Yeah, if you're in a state with no front plate laws, you can put whatever you want on the front of your car. I always had a non-registered vintage plate from 1966 on the front of my GTO when living...

I'm of the other perspective. Chances are that it will work correctly, even when 20 years old, and I'd like that protection. The science does not indicate that older airbags are dangerous.

Your reasoning here is pretty flawed, however. Except when defective, airbags increase your changes of surviving a crash by a huge amount. And I'd argue that a 20 year old airbag is still vastly...

Yeah, I've heard that GC uses custom valved Konis, not standard Koni yellows. Not sure if that's true, however.
