Re: Front Brake Hose Lines

Most hydraulic places will be able to make them from a sample. I suggest you check there length at full suspension droop (i.e. are they stretched or not) and use the opportunity to make them longer if required.

Re: Lockable spare wheel nuts

Or buy a long bolt and nut, and screw in place from the back of the wheel bracket , use the extra nut to lock the bolt against the bracket and then buy a set of locknuts.

Sub Tank Light and fuel tank cap not tight

Posting this as a note, sometime ago my sub tank light came on, I got the manual out to check how to read the codes but in the same time frame I also noticed a fuel smell after driving.

Re: Need advice please

Most Midas and Autozone have kits fro various cars, let them start by bringing a you Skyine 2.8 set, they are fairly long- check the distribute side connection and length against yours, else they should have loose ones and you can make up a set from that . Bougi Cord is the most common brand.

Re: Wanted: 17 inch Front Wheel Centre Cap

If the look / attach the same as the front then why not use a whole sole to remove the center part from one of the rear ones?

Re: Tow Bar Problem

Just a note, with a lifted suspension you will find that a normal trailer will be very low in the back, so check speedbumps. I've added a drop plate to mine without issues

Re: Tow Bar Problem
