I can not stand the way the transmission acts in my truck. For some reason it likes to shudder over 50 mph, and I swear I will beat it like a dead horse if it's the Torque Converter or the solenoid.

A 5 speed swap is out of the question, this transmission only has 51,000 on it, and I intend to end it's gayness and make it behave like a normal transmission should.

Pretty much hate everything about it today!!! Took it in for an alignment...can't get it aligned because ball joints and control arms are shot, oh and I need a wheel bearing and my rear brakes are completely shot and falling apart...yeah, falling apart. Which is why my front brakes have been working overtime.
Getting the brakes fixed so it can be driven safely...for awhile...until I find some parts and things. If I have the shop fix everything, I'm looking at about $1700. F MY LIFE.

Hate that mine averaged 18 mpg for the first 3/4 tank of gas it's used since I've owned it. Just a while ago, I bought MAS cleaner, SeaFoam Spray, and Bosch plugs. Plan on doing all that tomorrow and see what this next tank of gas brings. I put a can of SeaFoam in the tank.

^yeah, I considered doing it myself, but I'd have to order parts and wait until they come in, and because I live in an apartment and have a garage that is suitable for little more than an oil change (and even that is difficult to do in this small space) and it is now freezing outside, I'd just rather get it in and have it done. And I got a quote from the shop we use here at work and he'll get it all done for $1100 and will warranty it all so if there are any issues with it at any time...he'll replace/repair.

where did you get all that done for under 7 bills? That does sound like the right price but so many places will rape you for more. I know for a fact Firestone will want AT LEAST $800 just to do all the balljoints and an alignment and nothing else!

The fact it's not 4wd, that it's a singlecab, and I have to fix my speedo and gas filler neck when I get the money.

yeah, I got it quoted at 2 shops...one was 950 for just ball joints and an alignment. Another place was 1100 for alignment and ball joints, but then they found wheel bearing too, which added 350... damn

Mostly the giant R-rejection sticker because of emmisions. I need a new filler neck, you would think they would sell just the plastic insert that always breaks but no that would be too easy. Also need to do the rear spring shackles and dont really want to. On another note my 2003 explorer just got two new wheel bearings at a cost of $681.59 whoo hoo. (got to admit the front end feels tighter)
