    Ok so according to the vehicle maitanence sheet, the: "Inspect wheel bearings for noise and play Found left front wheel bearing to be noisy/worn/loose" is in fact the hub assembly and I should spend the $$$ and go with a BCA or Timken one? Thanks for the help, much appreciated.

    Hood release problem question

    Ok I own a 99 Explorer Sport. The cable for the hood release broke. I went to Auto Zone and Advance Auto Parts but they both told me they dont sell nor could they get them. My question is, will cables from other models 2000+ work if I can find one of them at either of these stores?

    LED lights are 12v?

    From what I've seen, the LED lights im looking at on street glow are 12v. If this is the case, can I just hook up the positive/negative wires up to the +/- of a 12v battery from Home depot? Would this work? If so, would any of you have any idea as to how long a battery would last doing this?

    Neon lights question

    well the way i see it is this. the battery always has a current running through it and the way i have my car set up is the neons are connected directly to the battery so if i just took the car out of the equation and only had the battery and the lights they should still work. isnt the...
