    Where to get new leaf springs?

    I am trying to find a new set of leaf springs for my '99 explorer xlt. I bought it around a month ago, and the rear end sags. In the future i am going to be putting on some 31" tires, and i want it to be level. I really don't like the look of the shackles, so i was wondering if i could just get...

    I am thinking about new tires...

    I have a stock '99 explorer with stock sized wheels/tires. I want to get some 31's with a more aggressive tread. I just bought this truck a couple months ago, and want to start making it my own. My concern is that there seems to be that the rear end is lower than the front end. Do i need to...

    which transmission do i have?

    How can i tell if i have the sohc? i am not very savvy on engine types. Anyway, i have replaced the filter before, and the only problem i had was getting the heat shield out of the way to drop the pan. The drive shaft was kind of cramped, but i was able to easily get the pan off. Sorry for the...

    A Modest proposal for those 5R55E Owners - EPC Solenoid Replacement Proposal

    I would be happy to get one. I need to replace my vb gasket, so i am going to get a new seperator plate with the gaskets built on to it. I could replace this while i am there. I may need it anyways. Thanks Jason

    5R55E 2-3 flare FIXED!

    I am pretty sure that i have a blown vb gasket. 1st gear is not holding back after the tranny gets warm. It will hold back fine when it is cold. That is the only problem that i am having that i know of. Could i just get the new separator plate and the new bracket assembly and fix the problem? I...

    1st gear is not holding back....

    Thanks for the reply. I think that i am going to do the valve bodt rebuild while i am changing the gasket. The problem in the thread you suggested was right on with my problem. I am going to take a day and do all of it at once. Thanks again for your help. Jason

    1st gear is not holding back....

    Any more ideas guys? One of the symptoms in the rebuild diary is that 1st gear will not hold back...that is why i thought of that solution. Also, there is not hold back at all in 4wd lo. It does the same thing as if i am in neutral. Any ideas? Thanks for the help. Jason

    1st gear is not holding back....

    where can i find the tsb that you are referring to? i tried finding it with a google search, but had no luck. btw... all of the gears seem to be working fine, but seem to be slipping a little to me. they may not be, but it seems that i am revving the engine higher than what is required to...

    1st gear is not holding back....

    I have a 1999 Ford Explorer, V6, 4WD. I bought this used, and noticed that it will not hold back in first gear. It will hold back until i get up to around 30mph, but after that, it is like i am in neutral. i can slam the gas, and it will take off (hesitation first), but when i let off, it is...
