Since it'll be maybe a week or 2 before I get it installed... Any tips on making sure my current one lasts? It's only getting audible at 45mph+ and like I said, louder on right hand turns, quiet on left.
I have 4 of these sitting in my garage. I am planning on rebuilding them one day, but could mail one down to you for way cheap if you want it.

I dissembled and repacked 2 hubs on the kitchen island the other night... in front of the wife. Only need a hammer, 3 pennies and a decent sized flat blade screwdriver.

Sounds like a typical Tuesday evening at the Casa de Pérez.

I appreciate it but the timken was ordered already. I just need to put it in and be able to get to work without noise/busted bearing...

I've seen the tutorial around here somewhere... I know it's doable but I just need it now. I'll be doing a lot more 'projects' later on this year in the winter. Repacking all 4 is one of them

Got busy this morning to try and install the cops setup I've had for well over a year. Whomever designed that bracket for the coilpacks should suffer the bites of a thousand fleas.

Went to reinstall the driveshaft and discovered the bearings on both ends are almost completely shot. Nothing like a month long clutch swap.

Called into work at 8pm on a Saturday.
Walk in door, punch in, hit "reset" on an overload, punch out, walk out door.
Such easy money.

Just a funny aside:

I clicked on shuiend's link above and since I am sitting in Lima, Peru the Ebay listing came up in Spanish. Damn technology is going to kill us all? Or should I worry that I am being followed?

New... issue.

Randomly my car is going very lean briefly for a few seconds. When it happens I let off the gas to engage decel fuel cut and it seems to fix it. Is my pump dying? Are one of my Five-O injectors going fubar? The motor still sorta runs just very lean during this time...

When it happened this morning on my way to work, 3k rpm, out of boost & cruising, had 14.7 or so AFR oscilating

Only lasts a few seconds.
