    Blue just hit 80k on the clock and i was wondering about things i should start replacing so our relationship can go for the long haul. Thinking about her ever breaking depresses me. What can i do?

    Is there anything like "the squeaky wheel" expression that is happening?

    Bushings, mounts that use stock rubber can be switched to poly, etc.

    I like the expression - "if it isn't broke, don't fix it"

    However, like Scott mentioned, checking minor things isn't a bad idea. Anything rubber would likely deteriorate. Check/change all the fluids; transmission, rear end, hydraulic if manual, power steering, brake, etc. Check motor mounts and transmission mounts.

    no squeaking just yet, but the bushings have been on my mind for quite awhile. I was looking at the set from energy suspension. Anything better?

    Energy Suspension products work just fine.

    You have Energy Suspension, Whiteline, and Noltec to name a few. All are popular with GTO owners.

    Flush your brake fluid and save your ABS system. It's easy and cheap.

    Best bet is to suck the fluid out with a turkey baster, re-fill the reservoir and run the engine for about 20-30 seconds and then repeat until the fluid looks clean.

    Better than paying a shop for a power steering flush.

    opps we forgot to warn you about that.....






    Try smelling oil that is mixed with coolant for a yr. That was a job I let my son get to experience as I went for refill of drinks. He was so pissed when I got back Told me he wanted to puke 3x's.
