  1. I totally agree. I emailed Doorman about them and they sent me extra sets for free. I ended ordering the stock bushings.
  2. Wow, you're the first person aside myself who experienced this problem! Too bad I have not been following the forum for a bit otherwise I would have told you so. I learned not too long ago about The TPS after doing a lot of studying the TCM schematics and deduced it to the TPS. What happens is the contacts wear in the general area where the throttle sits a lot (cruising) so so throws voltage spikes to the TCM. OEM is where to go with the TPS. I used a cheap aftermarket and the fitment is poor.
  3. Nice! I know the work involved since I did the same to a set of heads many years ago!
  4. Pull the pump through the back hatch. My pathfinder sat and rust ate my fuel pump and clogged the fuel filter, leaving me stranded and had to get my truck out the impound.
  5. Didnt quite think the thing through but it is a work in progress and build as you go type deal. Trying to strengthen the wings so i can lift from it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  6. Find a good donor transmission or have it rebuilt is your best bet unfortunately. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk

  9. Tell him he can pound sand. Lol. Have you ever been in a front end collision or see any evidence of such? My 93 originally had a copper radiator but most are now aluminum. Make sure your condenser and radiator fins are clean and not clogged up. Home depot has some type of coil/fin cleaner for home HVAC units but i do not knoe if it's snake oil to try. Cheap but wouldn't hurt. A gentle stream from the garden hose will work too if you do not have mud clogging it up. Make sure the fins are straight. Take care to bend then straight with a small thin flathead or similar tool. Stock use to have foam filter guides to "seal" the sides of the condenser and radiator so the fan can efficiently pull air through the fan shroud without air leak. You can use aluminum tape or rubber gasket liner from home depot as a replacement. All this is to ensure maximum efficiency of the stock mechanical fan. When you press the ac switch and turn on the fan dies the clutch engage? If not check to make sure the single wire plug is hooked up to the compressor. It follows the distributor harness to the side. Plugged and not frayed or broken check to see if you have pressure in the line. If it is too low or too high, the compressor clutch will not engage. Check to make sure your high and low pressure lines do not have cracks. Get yourself a recharge kit and follow directions. When it gets up to pressure the compressor will kick on but if you have air in the lines, it will-over pressurised and the compressor clutch will disengage to prevent an explosion. The auto parts store has rental vacuum pumps and manifold gauges. Even harbor freight if you want to buy. Use their coupons if you do. Also keep in mind there is a ratio of oil for so many oz of refrigerant. You do not want to overoil. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  10. The distances should be relatively the same for both sides. Was the caster issue related to the side with little space between the bump stop?What is your alignment numbers? There were some arms (welded badly but cannot remember the brand) that caused funny alignment issues. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  11. Removing the shim will help with the positive camber. When you crank up the torsion bars it lift the front which pulls the tierods in closer giving you neg toe. You can do a diy alignment to get thr alignment closer to spec until get it professionally done. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  12. Rust holes on top windshield...still need to replace windshield too so I'll deal with the leak or don't drive it on raining days.
  13. Had a couple hours to lay some booger welds. May need to reinforce the stock bumper bracket for more rigidity or leave it as-is for a failsafe. Using 3/16 plate. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
  14. Lift it some more and it will get rid of some of thr positive camber. Cut down the bumpstop until youre new low profiles come in. Drive around a bit with sandbags or weight in the back to help the springs settle in the rear. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N920A using Tapatalk
