    I want to upgrade to ES poly bushings, but ride quality and (mostly) cost are a concern. Is it possible to just replace the front control arm bushings and leave the backs OE rubber? Would that screw with handling/alignment? Has anyone done just front (or rear) only?

    09 GS. When I push the 2 lights they work. The light switch doesn't work. When I open the doors no lights. I had to get the top windshield rubber replaced. I went to Mitsubishi and was told I needed the whole map light assembly. They told me the part doesn't exist. Checked Ebay no luck...

    Hey guys, I was wondering about how well the 4cylinders would put up with mixing some E85 in the gas tank I know this is commonly done on Subaru WRX's because they require premium, so you GT Eclipse guys might be interested because of this. What people do for the WRX's is either mix E85 about...

    About to look at a 2006 GS 4 cylinder today. It's a first year car so would assume they have to work through some first year hiccups. Car is one owner and under 40k miles so maybe cars gremlins have not occurred yet. I know how to inspect for previous and body work along with general...

    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...

    Does anyone know how I could install ricey looking mudflaps to the rear wheels of a 2012 eclipse and which ones I should get? I'm not trying to spend more than 50 dollars on them. I've looked around a bit and it appears there are no eclipse based mudflaps available, or they are cheap plastic...
  10. Maintenance
    Didn't see a step by step so I thought I'd help out. I did not disconnect exhaust. But you may have to depending on your setup. Step 1 is get a jack with a piece of wood on it and support the transmission. Step 2 is remove the rear two bolts on the centermember. Step 3 is remove the...
  11. Problem Reports
    I had one of my brake pads seize up today, luckily caught it before it did any damage to the rotors. I think the cause is from the Rubber Bushing being torn, the bottom slider was basically dry. I lubed it up good and replaced the pads, but I don't know how long it will last without a good seal...

    Okay so i need to replace mine, but have a couple of questions where to get one. Checked multiple places and they don't have one like all the chain stores, rock auto and summit. Would the energy suspension motor mount bushing fit on the transmission mount or is that a different fit? If not...

    i just recently started noticing my RPM shudder maybe a month ago when i was running freeway speeds(85mph) and came to a redlight i stopped and noticed the RPMs dropped to 300-400 and shuddered as if it was failing to keep idle, after the shudder it went to normal idle at 600, no lights or...

    I have an issue with the door seal on my passenger side. It seems there's a channel up under the top of the door frame. The rubber door seal slipps into this channel and is held in place by ridges on the rubber seal and corresponding ridges in the channel. Unfortunately, my seal won't stay in...

    Hey guys! I know theres been a few threads on timing belts, however I can't seem to find any definitive answer on which one specifically to buy. Rock Auto has a TON of kits, and its kind of overwhelming. They're all virtually the same, just different brands. The timing belt is obviously not...
