    Best place for jack stands on the rear end

    Just to close this out.. all 4 corners are now on jack stands. I have the car just high enough the wheels barely touch the ground. This is enough I can get the tires off to work on the brakes, especially the rear ones, which was the goal for now. To do this, I had to move quite a few things around the car. I was able to give myself enough room to crawl my fat self between the car and the workbench behind it up to my shoulders, and from there I could see well enough to get the jack on the jacking point.

    Caliper Mounting Bolts Keep Backing Out

    Yeah, it’s high time I got a torque wrench. I usually just use the torque-by-feel approach, and if I’m doing something that would be stupid to do without a torque wrench like assembling an engine, I’ll rent one. I’ll check my work with those torque specs, and replacing the other old bolt might not be such a bad idea either.

    I like the 50 extra horses. It's worth the effort.

    Caliper Mounting Bolts Keep Backing Out

    Dorman 13899 are front caliper bracket bolts and are supposed to be torked to 148 foot pounds. The front caliper slide bolts Delco #18K114 are supposed to be torked to 80 foot pounds. I had the driver side bracket bolts come loose the first time I replaced my front pads because I only torked them to 100 foot pounds.

    LQ1 common oil leak areas

    As much as I’ll admit that they’re oddly designed and a pain to work on for some things, I honestly don’t know why they get the hate that they do. The three that I’ve had have been maintained somewhere between mediocre and decent, and have been very good to me.
