Secrets to Installing Rotor/ Wheel Bearing Seal?

I'm repacking my bearings and noticed the seal was deformed. So I pulled it, and now having quite a bit of trouble getting new seal in. It just does not want to go into the rotor. This is my second...

Re: 0 Compression in Cylinders 1+4

So the belt was completely broken. So the 1 cylinder was stuck on intake and the 4 cylinder was stuck on exhaust, at least thats my best guess. Replacing that now.

Re: 0 Compression in Cylinders 1+4

After looking farther into it, I noticed my timing belt had an unnecessarily large amount of slack, so that's going to be my first replacement. Hopefully that piston didn't smack the shit out of the...

Re: i want to put power windows and locks in my truck...

It looks like eBay doesn't have a very big selection anymore, actually none at all. And the kit I bought came with remote door locks, not just keyed.

Re: Pull springs from other trucks?

You can do that, and you can also add shackles for even more rear lift.
And torsion crank if you already haven't done so.

Re: Whats my options on seats for a single cab?

Any single cab seats made after 1998 should fit. You can also get seats from the Mazda B-series single cabs

Re: Clanking sound with new springs?

Nothing came out with the old springs, so im assuming they were stuck up there and not removed. If clanking persists after new arms are installed i'll try to fix it then.
Thanks for the help though

Just installed the 3" lift springs and have been driving around for a few days. I have noticed, though, that when going over a sizable bump or hole, I get some clanking that sounds like it's coming...

Re: Finally installed my lift

Add some wheel adapters. Pushing the tires out to the sides would make it look tons better, IMO.

Re: Go for the blacked out theme?

I had the same thought for my truck. When I found out black rims and billet grills were much more expensive, I went with chrome. I can honestly say I like the mix of 95% black and 5% chrome on my...

Re: Question about suspension lift....

Ok, so more stress on the joints. If I can hold out on the arms for a little bit, it's alot better for me. I'll probably just replace the old ball joints when installing the lift springs.

Thanks...

I'm looking to get about 2" of lift up front by replacing the stock springs. Are there any known cars, trucks, SUV's, or vans that will swap in? If not, ill just buy them, but it would be hella...
