  1. Wheels, Tires, Brakes and Suspension
    Been Looking around the forums to find out and can't get a conclusive answer Will 18x9.5 +10mm fit our cars? and if so How much will it poke out? or will a 18x9 +33 fit more flush? Thank you for anyone who can help! (Ps the wheels I'm admiring are the Hyperbronze XT-206r from Cosmis Racing)...

    This Eclipse right here is a certified badass 4G if you hadn't already seen it on YouTube. I can't do most of the custom amazing mods he's done for performance, but I'm wondering if I might be able to emulate a backyard version of his custom one-off front bumper mod. You can see it here in...

    I'm attempting to do a full coolant flush on my 2008 Eclipse GT tomorrow and as the manual states you don't just drain the coolant from the radiator. There are actually two bolts on the engine block, both front and back, to drain all the fluid out completely. My question is, is it necessary to...

    I've been in the process of updating hoses and flushing the power steering fluid on my car. I can say with certainty, if you haven't done it, get it done. The power steering fluid eats at the inside of the hoses and it discolors the fluid, Pieces of rubber can end up in you steering rack. I have...

    My sons eclipse gt just got a engine swap, the old one had a roller bearing issue, and would've cost a arm an a leg to replace. Got him a new used one, and everything was great, until the back lifters started clicking, changed the oil, after using motor flush, no noise, then it started back up...

    I'm coming up to 124k kilometers on what I can assume is the original coolant. Car runs fine, no overheating problems, but it may be high time for a little preventative maintenance. What coolant do I need and how much to fill? As some may know, I plan to get a few laps in this summer. Would it...

    Looking to flush and refill my transmission oil in the spring. I've got 123k kilometers on the original fluid, hoping it can smooth out my (at times) notchy shifting. Are there any high rated brands/products besides OEM, and how much do I need to buy to fill?

    Ok. So I'm new to Eclipses. Arfe the drain and fill bolts in the generally same location as the 6-speed? Also, what would be the best fluid? I was thinking about using Redline 75W-80, but I've read that GL-4 compliant fluid is also good for it. Also, 1.9/2 quarts? Do I need a flush if the stock...

    I purchased a set of solid aluminum replacement door panels on ebay which I'm sure come from someone on this forum and I wanted to post my thoughts after installing them. The handles on my car were beginning to break and I decided that I wanted to replace them with something that wouldn't. I...

    Hello. Anyone near Burbank that can take a look? Haven't started the car in a couple of years. Charged the battery. Changed the oil. Could be debris build up. But, the radiator or radiator area is loud as hell with a metal/ metallic noise. Let it run for a bit and I saw smoke from the...

    Hey guys, so I know this sounds a little ridiculous so I wanted to get some extra feedback from everyone. Just to see if it would be as dangerous as I would think. So as of right now, the front two wheels are roughly 7/8" from being flush with the fender, while my rear passenger is 5/8" and the...

    Hey all - I have some new wider wheels on their way so I'm selling my two 20mm and two 25mm Ichiba V2 wheel spacers. They've been on my car for about two years and are still perfectly functional. For those who don't know, these size wheel spacers will make the stock wheels sit dang near...

    Alright guys. I need help finding an aftermarket shift knob for my GT 6 speed that fits flush with the gear shift lever and reverse lockout. I made the mistake of buying a cheap "universal" shift knob and there is a 3" gap between it and the reverse lockout. All the ones I am finding only show...

    Been noticing on every after market head unit job the dash grill doesn't look like it sits inside/flush with the rest of the dash like with the stock grill. They look like they protrude outward overlapping the dashboard. Is this the way the after market grills are made or are people having...

    I have an automatic 2006 GS coming up on 70k miles. I am the second owner, bought from a hyundai/mitsubishi dealer. Haven't had any problems with the car, but I have no record of maintenance from the previous owner or if the dealer fixed/replaced anything. I recently went to the dealer for an...
