  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

2wd vs 4wd springs
« on: January 11, 2016, 01:39:57 AM »
I know this is a dumb question and ive looked everywhere. Does anyone know if the sprigs for a 2wd are different that springs for a 4wd 2nd gen?

Correct. I get a set of bilstien 5100s and got a extra set of springs and top plates and now my truck sits lower than it did before but I realized the springs came out of a 07 2wd. Gonna have to take my stock 4wd ones an replace

Springs do settle and may wear out and compress more but you should measure your stock 4wd one and just remove 1 2wd to make sure. maybe confirm what i have read.

Well after I posted the OP I did some more research and they are different p/n fo 2wd and 4wd and found a post were Greg from prg states they have different spring rates. I'll be getting  spring compressor Friday and swapping them out. I also noticed before my ball joints went out the front end felt like there was too much weight up front. Kinda like a boat going over wake at low speed

are you planning on keeping the 5100s?
If so you could just run a stiffer spring and upper control arms and you could get more lift
