    For the life of me I can't find OEM strut assembly for the 2006 Eclipse GS? I found a few options but they're like $200 PER assembly... Would OEM strut assembly from a 3G work? Also I found this a coil over kit for $320; This includes all four corners... brand new full assembly Was curious if...

    Toilet paper may be in short supply, but there are now plenty of children wandering around aimlessly after their schools shut down and booted them out the door. Now is a great opportunity to get kids interested in cars. A little tinkering on cars can help teach them how to use their minds and...

    Well......to this platform at least. :wavey: Previous 3g owner and headed up to Cinci in the am to pick up my "NEW" 4g. Took me a little while to convince myself to switch to a 4g after trying to replace my beloved 3g (lost in a divorce as she was used as a bargaining chip) Huge blow to me.....I...

    Since my last 2 track days were hampered by brake juddering, and Sabertooth talked me off the ledge of Big Brake Kit purchase, I doubled down on EBC and got new rotors. I went with EBC GD7290 GD series Sport Rotors, as they promise significanly more venting and air flow than my current USR...

    Hi Folks, I have been a 4G GS owner since 2006 and was on the forum way back then. The car has never been back to the shop as I do all my own maintenance. I need to get the brake recall done, but that's another story. I just had my timing belt break on the way to work the other day and of...
  7. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    As I slowly work my way through my long list of mods (currently getting an AIT body kit installed, next up is RRE header) I want to make sure I'm future-proofing my Eclipse. It's at 100k miles and I'm putting a shitload of time/money into it, so I'll need to get to at least 160k-180k miles on it...

    I have a 2006 eclipse GS 4 cylinder, and I need my cv axle replaced on the passenger side. Which brands do you guys use to replace yours and is it reliable? My car is not performance modded in any way just a plain eclipse that is my daily driver. Car vibrates at highway speeds. Also I saw...

    Engine maybe has rod knock? I've been driving this car for about a year now (Bought it in February 2018) and everything has seemed fine. Car has 135,000 miles on it. I never noticed anything until the recent oil change. For some reason, after changing the oil last time, I started hearing a...

    I was on my way home from a buddies house and was grabbing my books for a linux class I had in about an hour. I was running a little bit late and was feeling very confident in my driving skills, so I started passing everybody I saw. I saw a truck coming up, as well as a very sharp turn, and...

    Hey! So I know there's a lot of material out there on how to properly bleed your clutch, but I decided to make a guide since me and the shop that worked on my car made some stupid mistakes on it. So! While I'm doing this on a 2.4, I assume the process is the same for the 3.8. If your clutch...
