  1. thanks Craig, I gave them direction, but they sounded like they wanted coverage for every possible thing that could go wrong, so I gave up..
  2. HAY BODE... just to set you straight NO the solenoid is NOT right on top of the starter... it is right UNDERNEATH.. didnt you look at my photos??? both of ours are 99 ls400's plus when you try to take those two bolts out behind the block..... well I dont want to scare you... AND But, it could also be dead spots on the coil or bad contacts, brushes, I think they still call them that. NEVER saw that failure... on a LS400 I am out of here, make your choice and good luck
  3. OK, had the arms installed last friday and got it aligned today, and it handles/rides like new with NO sounds, popping, cluncks ... just it.. on thursday I will have the new bushings pressed into my original arms, and if these china arms give me any trouble I will put the OEM's back on..
  4. that was 2010, times/prices have changed, have you noticed??
  5. My nephew has done 5 LS starter jobs (2 were mine + 3 friends) he charged 400. and BYOS.... 4 to 5 hours each without hurrying .. ps never had a comeback. photos was my 99 in 2010.. still going strong.
  6. well I ran into a snag on my new bushings (it is just a time snag) I dont have all the equipment I need to pull the arms off, remove the old bushings and press in the new and put it back old body cant do the work anymore (without a lot of pain), SO I just bought a pair of new arms for 150.$ (probably made in china or some cheap country that makes them for china).. I will put them on,and see how they do while I do the R&R on my 28$ bushings and then decide if I continue or change them out.. I will keep you posted... the original arm/bushing lasted 210k, and I (at 83 in june) will neverapproach that...
  7. quote: now if only we could clear up the power steering trouble... you can, you can.. just read up on PS repairs.. RIGHT HERE... its amazing what you can learn when you just READ... Like this Quote
  8. ONLY put Dextron IV ATF in your PS.... NO stop leak at all read your manual.... and read up on PS leaks right here...
  9. sounds like he already has his mind made up, and is not asking for any guidance.... so go for it John..
  10. dont they have any parts houses in Washington that will check your Alt for free ??? also remember to check for a GOOD GROUND
  12. Go by Autozone and have them test it with their ODB tester and get the codes... why ask ????? you want a bunch of guesses?
  13. yes, I done it the same way on mine....
