    Thats why I figured they quoted him for a full rack and pinion. Plus alot of the chain shops seem to only want to replace full units instead of fixing whats broken, for fear of come backs and all.

    The million dollar question is how long will it last...it was 17 this morning and high of 60 tomorrow. Hopefully it's here for a few days but it'll probably be short lived.

    Like I said very tight/rigid at first but after a couple hundred miles it loosens up. Havent missed a 2-3 since installing it. Used to have a factory Hurst before. Still a tougher shift slightly then stock and you always know when in its in gear. You can feel it as it goes in.

    Hey,, I think the theorangeguy tossed some of that warm weather up to Md !! Got up to 47deg so I uncover the T/A to take her out for a little spin and all I get is a " click click click etc.... " I know it's been awhile but DAMN !! Put the battery charger on for awhile and it started up but boy was she mad !! Ran rough and wouldn't idle worth a crap for several minutes. Is that normal?? I know it did something similar to that when I put the PCM back in after a tune but not quite that bad. Just wondering..

    They used to use that cinder crap down here on the roads but everyone complained so much they switched to salt only ... be careful what you wish for I suppose. Sometimes they put down more salt than the amount of snow that falls --not lying ! Going down I-95 in traffic we're in a white salt-fog. Ridiculous !! I'm with you,, where's April??
