Re: Spyder Halo Fogs?

My fogs only have a two-position switch. ON/OFF. My guess is that you'll probably need to wire up a second switch to control the halo ring individually.

Re: exhaust ideas

I spent a lot of time on YouTube listening to exhaust clips trying to find the perfect tone for my particular engine. Unfortunately, I wasn't willing to spend $1000 on a cat back to get the sound I...

Re: Doing exhaust on 5.7L WK...What's your opinion?

My opinion. Start with a tuner like the Diablosport Intune. It will increase both performance and fuel economy so it's a win-win. Don't waste your money right now on an exhaust or air intake. You...

Last night a guy in a box truck tried to squeeze through me and the guy driving next to me at about 30 mph. Didn't quite work out. Let the reconstruction begin. :(

Re: SRT-WK: How long do your brake pads last?

You may want to ask in the SRT-WK1 section. WK's don't use Brembo brakes.

Re: on again, off again vibes

Sounds like a wheel bearing. You could also switch your front and rear wheels and see if the problem moves to the front indicating a bent wheel or out-of-balance tire.

Re: Bilstein Strut install, no bumper.

If you're referring to the bump stops, then yes you do need them. There are no bump stops to replace in the rear unless you changed coil springs. The front struts will need to be completely removed...

Re: Top 5 Suspension Parts to Replace for a comfier ride

Hopefully you did the coil spring isolators when you did the struts in the front. With 125K this would have definitely been on the top 5 to replace. I would also include ball joints in that list.
