    Converting to mono-leaf

    So I already have 3" blocks in the rear of my trac, but i still wanna get rid of the wheel gap. I used to be lifted, and read of people using the 4dr leafs for lift, but they only got lift because of the monoleafs sagging. I've been doing research and found that the rear leafs on the sports...

    Just lowered my truck a few days ago. I brought my truck to a friend who works at the local Ford dealership to get it aligned, and he mentioned that my front shocks were blown/leaking oil... I've decided to go with the Nitro Slammers, but...before i buy them, they need to know the collapsed...

    Well...After Lifting my Trac with longer torsion bolts and Copperhead Fab shackels, and running 33's...I was getting 12 mpg... I decided to drop her. I used some old 265/75/16 tires(still kinda big) and removed my torsion bolt all together. A friend of mine actually gave me some 3"...

    Finally Elite 04 Sport Trac

    Update... After getting an amazing 12.6 mpg with my last tank, I picked up some 265/75/16 Michelin ltx m/s for free from a friend who put some 22s on his chevy... That being said, I had an ex-coworker mount and balance them for free; and yet another friend offered me his brand new in the box...

    03 Sport Trac Intake Plenum Leaking????

    i believe it is a gasket...If you take off the little cover on top of the motor that says "4.0 SOHC" you can actually see the thermostat housing...there are only 2 bolts on it and the coolant hose clamp

    Need some help

    The aussie locker (i'm actually ordering one on thursday) will go into full lock under load, ie acell(sp). when turning the locker will "unlock" and will allow one tire to spin faster than the other. This cuts down on tire squeal/wear/hopping around corners. Although it "unlocks", it will still...

    Honestly, they suck. The holes that were drilled were way too small, so I had to go buy a $15 drill bit and new grade 8 nuts and bolts to fit the new 1/2" holes I drilled. Then, the shackles weren't wide enough to fit over the leaf springs, so I had to beat them with a hammer to fit correctly. I...

    2001 sport track

    it should be a non interference is a single overhead cam..... so i would think that just replacing the timing chain and tensioner and setting the timing would take care of the ticking... do a little search on the timing chain, you might be surprised

    Intermittent parking brake light

    mine was doing the same thing...most likely you are low on brake fluid...and the brake fluid only gets low if you have a leak or your brake pads are low... so check the fluid and go from there

    Stupid Mechanic....

    They don't go over the half shields, they replace them. I think there are 3 tabs on both of the small ones, so I would assume the full shield would mount up with those 6 tabs

    Stupid Mechanic....

    run your hand along the tread of the tire... -it should feel smooth, i.e. all tread same height -if the outsides of the tire are worn more, the tires are under inflated -if the inside(middle) of the tire is worn more, there is too much air -if just the inside(closest to the motor) of the tire...
