    tire feathering & chirping question

    Mine wears out the inside of the tires really fast. I have had the front aligned and double checked but the alignment shows good. The shop told me that there is a shim kit that can be put in the front to keep the tires from wearing the insides and I am going to have that done in a few weeks...

    Reliablity of AWD V8?

    Wow on that fuel mileage. I have a 96 5.0 with 111k and I get 13 city and 18 highway. I have had it almost 10 years and it has never had great gas mileage. Overall it has been a very reliable vehicle. I am beginning to get some tranny vibrations when shifting into overdrive.

    Newbie here with a few questions!

    Not that I can tell. I took it out last night on wet road and tried to engage the ABS but no pulsating of the brake pedal. Cruise works. Fuses good, no sign of damage on any sensor wires. Firestone suggested replacing the ABS module but that this is over a $1000. Thinking it is time to use...
