Re: Did someone throw away my Camber Bolt parts? Upper Control arm.

Replace both control arms, if one is bad the other will need replacement soon. 90,000 is about the average lifespan. I guess you are low on funds but buy OEM control arms and adjustable camber bolts....

If you pull anywhere close to the max expect 13-16 mpg max since the turbocharger will constantly be spooled up.

Re: 03 Ford Ranger 4x2 question

Whoever told you the 3.0 engines are hit or miss is an idiot.
Very reliable engines so don't listen to spammers.

Re: Pinging?

If 91 octane stops the pinging either seafoam or have the timing set back 3 degrees.

Re: Pinging?

Probably carbon build up in the heads. At 110,000 miles I would doubt a bad EGR valve. A timing chain rattle would be evident all the time.

Those size tires don't exist. 33/12.50/20 tires exist but would look totally ghetto on a Ranger.

Re: 2002 Mazda B2300?

Try to solve the problem yourself first. If you can't, then ask questions. This kind of crap is a big problem with millennials.
