  1. Oh hai everybody! 

  2. Anyone know an easy way to make the driver's power seat work better? Pretty sure mine is dying...

      New actuator maybe ? We've had to replace them in the company cars because of all the people using them and moving the seat . (2008 Impalas and Cobalts). 

  3. Looking for opinions of brands of A/C compressors for the sable off rockauto.

      My store just got a 2004 Sable LS Premium sedan on trade, a geriatric special with black leather and 43k miles.

      Not looking for a new car, only an A/C compressor....

      OReilly sells Murray aftermarket compressors.  I see very few new compressors back.  Remans are a whole different story.  Replace the drier and orifice as well.  Also, the condenser may need replacement as some cannot be flushed.

  4. Sable needs a new passenger side ball joint. Looking for Brand recommendations asap. thanks in advance.

      Nick and I had this discussion last night. Moog greasable ones with energy suspension grease boots

      Anything that isn't super cheap. And avoid AutoZone.

      Yes.  Good luck finding the grazeable ones.  Moog is pretty dang good.  Just slip the boot over what is there - the Moog/OEM boot won't last.

  5. I'm a fan of this new banner!

      Those are "speed holes". The Lotus mantra- simplify and add lightness.

  10. Exciting things will be happening to the sable very soon!

      Jaguar used to. Rolls Royce and Bentley still do.

  12. Looking for the thread pitch on the bolts that hold the plastic muffler hanger at the back of the car. I can't find it anywhere online.

      The plastic hanger where the rubber one mounts to.

    3. Thub

      Best bet is take the old bolt or a piece of one to a hardware store and find something similar.

    4. ShelbyRacer78

      ShelbyRacer78

      Got the bolts today, finally...

  13. I'd like to get a bigger oil filter on sable for the next oil change, I'm thinking the FLA1 is the right one for the job can anyone confirm this for me?

      Chart in the post, starting poing is threads, then OD of the gasket.

      Also, remember that the FL1A does not have the silicone anti drain back valve (ADBV) like the "S" filters do. The duratec (FL-820S) and Vulcan (FL-400S) all are originally specced for the silicone valve.

  14. I am loving the retrofitted headlights!!

  15. I guess Brian won't be the only one with a retrofitted Sable on here anymore...

  16. Messed around with my exhaust and now its only loud at the back of the car!

    1. Brian_05_SEL

      Brian_05_SEL

      Where was it loud before?

      Ah, well I think you need gen 3 or older brackets then. And I'm not even 100% sure there is a kit available for the rear?

    4. Vulcanator

      Vulcanator

      You can order the rear brackets from shosource

      If you can't find them at a wrecker.

  18. What other cheap mods can I do before Carlisle?....

      Oh wow, you covered all the ricer things.

      He can remove the radiator to get more airflow to his engine.

    3. TaurusKev

      Turn the radiator into an air intake cooler? :P

      Strap dynamite to it and hit the blow up button.

  19. My 7-spokes need new tire valves, anyone know what the replacements are?

  20. 3rd catalytic converter delete, best thing ever!

  21. Duratec plugs gap specs?

    1. Thub

      Thub

      check your hood sticker, might be there.

  23. Intake gaskets: Could I get ones from a Duratec Escape and still use them on my Sable?

      Just checked found nothing...

      The Upper intake manifold is slightly different IIRC, I would think the lowers are the same, its the exact same cylinder head and fuel injector layout.

    4. breeves002

      breeves002

      Why would you even need different ones... Just get ones for your car. They sell them everywhere.

  24. My new hub is here and I'm gonna try and tackle it tomorrow at school. Any tips? Also I wanna get new front sway bar links soon and I kinda wanna get metal Moog ones, yes or no?

    1. Thub

      Thub

      Yes, can't beat the Moog links with the grease zerks.

  25. My Sable needs a front hub any tips on which brand to get? I'm leaning towards a Moog one.
