Since it was a 3 day weekend, I had some extra time. Installed new seat covers from theseatshop.com and painted the sails. Third brake light next weekend, I hope. Happy 4th!
You might have to take the line back apart and use little emery cloth on it, or replace the seal, you can get the seal assortment kit from auto zone for 12.99, it comes with all the sizes you need.Can I row mine down to your mechanic? Finally finished the fuel pump and had to replace the lines that connect to the pump and sit on top of the tank. Primed it, and it fired right up. But where the new lines connect to the old hard lines in front of the tank are leaking a sieve. . I don't have time for this (radio edit). I hate all forms of plumbing whether it be in a house or on a car.
It turned out being a rusted through line that I have the shop replace. Was squirting like old faithful.You might have to take the line back apart and use little emery cloth on it, or replace the seal, you can get the seal assortment kit from auto zone for 12.99, it comes with all the sizes you need.
Good looking out camaroz. I already replaced the passenger front bearing back in December '19 when it started growling at me. I bought the drivers side at the same time and intended to swap as a set, but there was always some other pressing project. Now was the perfect excuse to get it changed out too, had the part on hand this whole time. Timken part# SP500301.Might as well do the wheel bearing too at this pont.
I'm getting ready to put rear shocks and springs on my Avy, it's starting to feel a little loose in the rear and I just noticed that the air bags on the shocks are both blown out. I guess after 226k miles things get a little worn out. LOLRemember the saying if one side is bad the other side is right behind it.
I have coil springs on my 2010, it also has the magna-ride shocks on it, $260.00 a piece for the aftermarket shocks and 60 bucks for the factory coil springs. SMH, I guess that's what I get for getting the LTZ model.Yeah about a year ago I notice the rear was acting funny when I turned a corner. I looked at the rear shackle and saw them OMG. I was lucky they did not break.
I didn't replace one I replaced both.
Wow, what a huge difference that is, I think I might order some for my 2010, the guy who owned it before me was a big guy and I sink in my driver's seat. I would imagine the foam is completely smashed. Thanks for the tip!When I bought my 2003 Z-66 back in February 2020, there was very little that I did not like about it.
The truck was in overall really good shape.
However, the driver's seat bottom foam was worn out a little more than I liked.
Especially after having been used to the firm seating in my 2004 EXT.
When I replaced all of my front seat leather in my EXT, including both arm rests and the driver's seat bottom foam, with products from The Seat Shop, I became spoiled with the firmness of their DuroFoam seat foam.

The driver's seat bottom foam in the Z-66 was worn smooth out and I could feel the metal spring runners when I sat down.
I am surprised the seat bottom leather was not worn completely out since bad foam is what leads to bad leather.
So, I ordered a new seat bottom foam and installed it.
From the looks of things, I was not a minute too soon.

The only problem is, now that the driver seat bottom is nice and firm, the OEM seat bottom leather is looking a bit too worn for me.
No holes, but I don't think it would take much with 246K on them.
So, I ordered both front seat bottom leathers.
The OEM seat covers have the cloth inserts along the front edge of the seat bottoms.
You can see on the old foam where the cloth has allowed who knows what, over the past 13 years, to leak down into the seat foam in the area of the cloth inserts.
The Seat Shop does not offer seat covers with the cloth insert, so the front seat bottom leathers I ordered will be OEM solid leather/vinyl designs.
This picture shows the cloth insert on the driver's seat bottom before the new seat foam was installed.

The new seat covers will not have the cloth insert, but the color will be correct.
The front seat backs, headrests and rear seating will still have the OEM cloth inserts since none of that will be changed.
The only cloth that will be missing will be the insert on the two front seat bottoms.
My wife and I both think that should not be an issue.
We shall see.
I got the email stating they have been shipped, so I will post up when I get them installed.
You will be impressed.Wow, what a huge difference that is, I think I might order some for my 2010, the guy who owned it before me was a big guy and I sink in my driver's seat. I would imagine the foam is completely smashed. Thanks for the tip!
