Well before I replaced the shocks the support tower on the one side was rotten and it was unsafe to drive. That's why it got traded in at the dealership and I got it from my used car manager for $501...

Drat, then that's not broken... So my two possibilities that I can think of are sticking caliper or bad steering gear. Any other causes that might lead to the occasional pulling condition?

PS fluid squirts out cap

My 1995 F150 5.8 felt funny when driving. Sometimes it was pulling to the right, other times tracked straight. I had recently replaced the shocks and support towers so I thought maybe they weren't as...

Are Powerstroke Turbos water cooled?

Just curious, I know the ecoboost gas motors have water cooled turbos allowing soccer moms to shut off the car without a cool down due to the thermosiphon, but is this carried over on the current...

The reason a dealer lowers price to get you to buy on the lot is because it typically is $1000 cheaper for us... Savings we can pass to you. Additionally most customers are liars and its not unheard...

Off topic but its my thread...that's a beautiful jeep. I'm an AMC man at heart and have a future drag 65 Marlin as well as a 68 Javelin. Full size jeep trucks have always eluded my cheap ways.

I'm not unemployed, that's probably why the idea of needing to take a road trip is so appealing, I can almost justify it. I did put in a bid just to see, but yeah, if I could haul west, not to make...

Great input. I only have the single 18g tank so I def was planning on extra fuel. I figure the frequent fuel stops will help keep me awake. I have not towed much as I've not owned it long. It had...

Probably did a hard stop during suspension test. Again, you're lucky it failed in/near a shop rather then when you were going 65 and slammed on the brakes to not hit a deer. Still poor customer...

I'm in the logistics planning phase of a 5k road trip to pick up a truck in Idaho (I live in Pa). I'm seeing if the seller can hold the truck until spring so I can get my funds in good order and get...
