Have started a full detail on the car, Maquiars 3 step included, that i have had sitting around for ages, and taking a few notes on what i need to do.

New struts, old ones? these are well and truly poked. I will probably settle for some KYG Excel G Struts, i was going to do them myself but by the time i got a new spring compressor, and the shocks, then my time, i may as well let someone else do them.

Before i can look at those i need to get the rear bar on the truck, so i can tow my camper in March, that's about the same cost as the struts .

I need to fix the direction switch on the heater, i had it all apart a while back, but ran out of time, and had to go to work so put it all back together uncompleted, this time i can leave it and take the truck if it not completed. Whilst i have the dash apart i need to put a aerial booster in, so i can hear the radio properly, the installer many years ago forgot about that, then wouldn't take my calls to come back and fix it, i just mainly listen to my USB sticks anyway.

Tyres are about 50% but the spares poked, i dont think i will put the Yoko ATS on this time, i reckon they wear a little fast, i might try something different in a stock size A/T.

A full service will get done soon, i usually do that after summer and also change all the wiper blades.

Some seat covers, maybe some nice sheep skin or some black ducks

New rubber mats and lots of other goodies.

Lots of fun to be had

I am actually finding it fun to have a car to work on myself, that i can still take to hell and back if i feel like it.

I am sure there is something you might be able to do to the car after the struts are done

Ewww that smell

Could smell a very odd stink about the car last Thursday so immediately checked the drivers side CV boot, shes cooked captain

On Monday will have a new shaft and boots done, exactly 135,000k before she went so thats not too bad.

Since i went up the bush a few weeks ago i have had a light grinding sort of sound, definitely transmission orientated, as soon as you cluth in it stops, so i am hoping this is it, if not i will do the other side, if its the tranny i may order in one with revised gearing etc, will see how i go.

Ahh its only money

That's a good run for the boots. Good luck resolving the grinding.

Considering the smacking they have had, yes, mates went at 90k and he only drives it around town.

Yes that noise, although faint, is annoying, maybe a bearing of some sort

Oh well i have only been driving it around town pretty much, so might turn it into a desert tourer

Are you getting an OEM axle? Aftermarket ones usually don't last very long on a lifted Subie.

Are you sure the grinding sound isn't the CV having spat the grease out?
