So last night we were at a party and there was a request to pull my car out to the bonfire for music so i did. And it was out there a whole 5 minutes when some douchebag pulls his grand prix out there too same color same interior neon but he was playing his system obnoxiously loud... it wasnt anything close to mine and it sounded awful he was playing lil wayne.. nobody wanted to hear his garbage and i was playing the music the girl wanted so we took my car back up front and everyone left the guy out there with his bad music and car.. it really pissed us off because the owner of the house told me not to play to loud and i was like thats fine. but this guy just played his so loud and it was just totally innapropriate.. i was pissed.

Also, I'm two days late, but I watched as my swaybar and control arms were replaced. All of those were all sorts of worn out or put put in wrong by NYPD contracted mechanics or a combination of both. Made a world of difference

But today, while driving home from classes, I was driving along through a construction zone and this guy cut another guy off (cutter-off was in a 94ish maxima and the other guy was in an Avenger) At the next red light, the guy in the Avenger got out of his car, walked over to the other guys car and choked him. My phone was dead, and I sorta wished I charged it last night.

I got my sparkplugs changed today, and it was quite an odd experience. The guy working on em found that one of the boots had been only connected to its plug by a single strand of wire. Needless to say, the car moves a lot faster/efficiently now. Sorta insane that GM says the Iridium Sparkplugs will last for 100k miles and mine were all garbled up before 50 (probably because of the crappy wires).

hey guys, im gonna do my bearings either tomorrow or sat, but i cant seem to find the torque specs on the bolts for some reason. i know i found them on here before but i cant seem to now. theyre not in the tutorial thread https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.p...19#post1443319

im looking for the torque specs on the hub and the 3 bolts in back. i remember the hub was relatively low and the others were super high if i remember correctly. i could have that backwards.
thanks alot guys.

oh and mine doesnt use the torx from the front, it uses the bolts from the back
