    Hi all, 10 years ago when I bought my eclipse (3.8L V6) I had an Eibach lowering springs/kit installed. I just recently broke the rear passenger spring. The mechanic said I'd have to make sure to get the same size replacement spring. The problem is I can't remember the size of the springs...

    Hi everyone, I've creeped these forums for a couple of years since getting my Eclipse for ideas on what's working for others and what I should avoid. About a year ago I saw both the AWD Eclipse that's been created and a video on a Civic Type-R with in-hub electric motors on the rear wheels to...

    I decided to take out more interior panels out of my 2008 Eclipse GT and weigh them for you guys in case anyone is interested in the numbers. You should also check out the original post for weight reduction here: Weight Reduction Here's everything I took out: Center hood vents: .12lbs each...
  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...

    I need to get my airbag light to go off. 07 eclipse gs. It will not turn off unless it's plugged in (or at least the ecu thinks it is) It's got two active sensors. One to check the position of the driver seat rail, and one for the weight pressure sensor. Does anyone have any idea what resistor I...

    What's up guys I just registered a couple days ago. Just wanted to introduce myself here my name is Flin and I'm from the Modesto, CA area. Decided to buy a 4G GT because not many people have it and many people underrate it, but after doing some research it has too much potential for it's own...

    I promised myself last time I got tires I would finally replace the OEM wheels. It's about that time. I really want the Enkei NT03+M, but those are only available in 18 x 7.5, so that's a dealbreaker. But now I can't decide which looks better; weight/price difference is negligible...My SE is...

    I can feel my throw out bearing going out and I'm sure that the clutch that's on there is the original clutch, and I've got about 124K miles. I think it's time for a new clutch. I don't plan on boosting or nitrous, so I imagine I don't need a clutch rated for 400HP, but at the same time, I want...

    I am having a devil of a time finding an access point thru the firewall for a single wire I need to run from the trunk to the battery positive. I have had a Class 1 hitch on my 2008 GS Spyder for hauling bicycles. I just bought and built a light weight trailer to haul a couple of kayaks. The...

    I'm running the Comp Cam Mustang springs, and I'm getting loud valve train noise. It seems as if the springs are too stiff, and over taking the hydraulic lifters on the intake side of the rockers..... anyone else have this experience? Not sure if I will need to go with a heavier weight oil, or...
