Re: '97 5-Speed - synthetic oil rather than ATF?

Good to know! I put in MerconV just to get it drivable. Shifts like a dream, but does have a little more sound (however it could just be that it's wearing in).

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!

'97 5-Speed - synthetic oil rather than ATF?

Just picked up my rebuilt transmission (for '97 4x4 M5OD) and the guy suggested using synthetic motor oil rather than ATF since it has brass syncros. Anyone heard of this? Thoughts?

Re: Lets See Those Lights!

Hm... I'll look around for those light tabs. Sounds like that could work. Do they seem to help a lot? Looks like it from the pic.

And thanks!

Re: Front Valance

The whole this was super easy to install. The bumper is a simple swap - bolts right in. Fogs are really easy too, they just bolt on to the bumper and I hooked up the fogs to the parking lights.

Re: Deep Wedgewood Blue Rangers

Yeah, I've been offline for awhile. I bought myself a '90 VW Corrado which has been a complete headache!

Nice! What did you end up doing for a lift?

Re: Deep Wedgewood Blue Rangers

Nice! Looks good. Yeah, I like the 4wd setup a lot more. How much did you end up getting yours for? New or used?
