  1. Thanks for the kind offer. Will try and find a solution locally but great to know that is an option. I figure paying customs at the border and shipping to canada may be a bit expensive.
  2. Cracked a cross bar on my roof rack of my 98 pathy. Pretty sure I loaded up the cargo box a bit too heavy and send it pretty good on the FSR's in BC. I have messaged a few ads on Craigslist selling parts cars but no luck yet. Has anyone purchased replacement before? Any third party brand that makes something made top fit? cheers
  3. The Lordco near me quoted on some parts. They didn't have the quick struts (pre assembled) in stock but here's what they do have: Prices in CAD 140 each for the struts 76 each mounts 200 for the set of springs I think I'm going to buy the parts and see if I can tackle this with a buddy. I'm pretty new at this but he has a bit more experience than me haha.
  4. Will a couple of these get me off in a good direction? https://www.amazon.ca/KYB-335016-Excel-G-Replacement-Strut/dp/B000CODES4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1531852625&sr=8-2&keywords=1998+nissan+pathfinder+struts Any other suggestions? I spend most of my time in the pathfinder driving on the highway and turning off onto forest service roads to go camping etc on the weekend. The pathfinder does take a good beating! I should get new coils as well?
  5. Sweet - just thought of a friend who may have a bit of experience with this as well as some tools. Gonna see if he's able to help me and if so I will get your guys recommendations on parts!
  6. Hey guys- My 98 pathy has slowly turned into a floaty boat over the last year. The bounce in the front of it after going slowly over a speedbump or even going fast on the sea to sky highway but hitting a light dip in the road--- can be a little sketch when driving 110km. I have no tools and very limited knowledge so I don't believe this is a swap I could do myself... My usual shop in Vancouver (I won't name them) has quoted me ~$1420 CAD before tax to have the front struts replaced and necessary components (bumps stops and bellows kit, stabilizer bar end links, wheel alignment). Is this a fair price from a shops perspective for this work based on your experiences? Money is super tight at the moment so I would like to find a cheaper solution if possible. Also- am I at risk of drastically damaging something or getting in an accident should I continue driving with the brutal front struts for a while until I can save up? Thanks so much
  7. Wow yeah they were and they actually were burned out! Won't be buying those again... Couldn't believe they went in 7 months
  8. Has this happened to anyone else? Yesterday someone flagged me down to tell me my headlights were off, sure enough they were switched on, but the bulbs weren't illuminating. The high beams work perfectly however. I installed these headlights about 7 months ago, so they definitely wouldn't be dead yet and even so, the chances of them burning out on the same day seems very slim. I haven't had a chance to check the fuses yet- but does anyone else have any recommendations on what to check or look for? This is on my 98 chilkoot edition. Thanks
  9. What part even is this? It looks like I can buy a new exhaust silencer for a good price on amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Bosal-278-375-Exhaust-Silencer/dp/B0015CN4FU/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 But I'm not even sure what the above part is that is cracked...
  10. You guys rock, thanks for the fast replies. I really need a mechanic friend who I can coax with beers to help me work on this thing!
  11. Hey guys, took my pathfinder in for an oil change, and among a few other things, they showed me my exhaust pipe and muffler is all rusted out and broke right off. Also they mentioned if they swapped it out they'd need to do the catalytic converter too I think. Estimated quote is at $1000 at one shop, $1100 at another. See damage here: Is this crucial to get done? I just spent ~$500 getting new steering rack boots put on after another shop effed up and put on CV boots (another $500 thrown down the drain). So I'm really not trying to spend that money right now. It is too rusted to be patched or welded apparently. What would you do in my situation? Thanks!
