Re: Radiator lower hose change

I also wanted to add something to this discussion :-" You will still need to bleed the system of any trapped air as well :-?

Power steering hydraulics refresh - Plus :)

When does it ever end :-({|= While test driving after exchanging the rear springs, I noticed that the power steering was whining louder than "normal", admittedly this has been leaking for quite some time, and such a dirty mess that I really didn't want to deal with it :cry: In fact, I am embarrassed...

Re: Fixed my saggy butt - rear spring replacement

Hey Bert, it was a great feeling to finally get at least the rear pair of these springs in #-o

I only took a short drive, as my power steering is whining and that's my next issue to address :-({|=

And you should easily be able to sell those Bilsteins here or elsewhere \:D/

Hmm :-k

Yes, it's true, I've had these springs from Bert for years :roll: While doing some other work in the rear recently, I noticed rubber bits sitting on the spring perches, and thought that the pads were disintegrating :-? Turns out it was just the closed cell foam bump stops that apparently aren't even...

Thanks Dave, I have to admit that it looks much better than the one I made :roll: But the more I look at the setup and think about it, it appears that the only purpose for the plate in between the wheel and hub is to mount the horn button :-?

Gents, in my quest to install the old school Motorsport Roundels everywhere, I got hung up on the steering wheel horn button, and made my own. :-" It sorta came out all right, but I wasn't satisfied, so I bought one from Renown https://www.renownusa.com/ as their info told me that it would fit =D> W...
