  1. I bought it through Walmart. Had a set of Michelins from there that lasted about 7 years. but they don’t make them anymore for my rim size. (265 70 R15). So I got Bridgestone. And jeez that’s a long time ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did make a complaint an hour ago and got a $250 discount. So I think it works out fine in the end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I bought some new tires for the Pathy and they’re manufactured on the 34th week of 2019. Is that too far back for new tires? They were bought online and shipped to me today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This weekend I installed a new rack and pinion. I also installed new coil springs on the front and rear. Along with new kyb shocks on the rear and strut on the front. I also got new kyb strut mounts, bellow, bump stop, and bearing. My strut didn’t need the spacer supplied. Everything went good with the installation. Except on the left wheel it looks like the bearing might be binding a little. You can feel and hear a slight thudding when trying to turn the wheel. And when I have someone do it and look at the strut I can see the wheel and strut assembly turning a bit before the top hat starts to turn. The bearing was a bit tight before I installed it and I did question it in my mind but thought because it was new. Will this break in over time or should I take it out? I did a string alignment after for now as I will be doing a machine alignment when my new tires are installed in the coming weeks. It came out pretty great to be honest. Drives straight.

  5. Got the new set of coils today. You were right, looks like someone did a little funny business with the last set that came. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Just over 181k but I live in NYC (Queens) and as you know city driving sucks the life out your vehicles. But it’s in amazing shape despite. I do get some stretches of highway driving in every week though. And used to do some Florida and Canada trips before with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yeah I tried it a few months ago and didn’t work. So I pulled upper and lower intakes and changed knock sensor, injectors, fuel rail to intake seals, IACV, and intake seals. So far so good. Hopefully don’t see the warm restart stumble after 20 min come back. One thing I forgot to do which I will do this weekend is clean all the ground connections in the engine bay.

  8. Yeah I remember from a while back when I had previously opened them up. That’s why I was stumped as soon as I saw these new ones. I knew something was off. I ordered a new set and sending these back and also a set of Moog for the heck of it to cross check. Whatever set I don’t use is going back. If they’re all screwed up I’ll just wait for the OMEs. But my springs are in need of changing currently so that’s why I went with one of these brands for now. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. And I think you are right hawairish. According to ACDelco the spring wire diameter is supposed to be 0.6in thick and the one I got is 0.75in. The inner diameter is supposed to be 5.9in. This one is less than 5in. The free length is supposed to be 14.8”. This one is barely 14in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So according to the company’s (ACDelco) tech they said it’s not a true pigtail and it will definitely work. Only way to know is when I take it apart or I order a next set and see when it comes. The coils also look thicker. You’re defiantly right about those possibilities. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah, I don’t know how various places are selling them for this vehicle. Even the Moog for this vehicle has a pigtail end. And people claimed to have installed it. Even a reviewer on Amazon said they installed it on a 98 Pathfinder. I don’t see how it would fit the top seat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. No wasn’t tampered and was the correct part number. I even called the company and provided the vin this morning and they said that’s the right one. But I will get a better pic up later. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m assuming that means it’s unlikely to work? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
