I believe that the G8 guys were swapping to the PPV struts as an upgrade...

Yep, but who knows if it was actually an upgrade. I think they were doing it for a firmer ride or something, right? Seems like all the Caprice guys want to soften up the ride...

Re: Struts off G8 onto 2013 caprice

Struts won't change the ride height, but springs will.

Re: 3.45 Differential install

I'm not Maurice, but I used the Caprice coupler when I installed my Camaro diff. It mated to the Camaro diff exactly like it mated to the Caprice diff. There was no difference. I don't remember having to support the LCA with a jack. Actually, I had to force it down. This is really an easy bolt in s...

I never take mine off of recirculate.
Well, the car does it for you. They do not stay on recirc when set to recirc. They cycle back and forth. I believe most if not all newer cars are like this.

Man, I figured the recirc button does that, but I guess there's a 'recirc' and a 'really-recirc' setting, too! :lol:
Does what? Pollution mode turns recirc on and off depending on speed. It has nothing to do with recircing more.

Re: Complete Stock Exhaust and Front Crash Bar

Is there any interest in a complete stock exhaust. I have everything from the cats to the mufflers all in good shape almost no rust? $100 local pickup about a half hour north of Pittsburgh PA. I also have a front crash bar. Complete with hardware and mounting brackets. This is a nicer unit that doe...

Re: Mysterious electronic noise in engine bay

Yeah, I think that's what Maurice was getting at. It makes sense, since I think the EVAP solenoid is on the front of the pass side cylinder head and it's almost the only thing on that side of the engine with the exception of the fuse/relay box and the starter. Does anyone know how much voltage the s...

It was civilian owned its entire life. There was never one bit of police gear installed in it.

Re: Mysterious electronic noise in engine bay

Weird, right? If it did it more than a few times a year, I'm sure I could figure it out, but it's so random.
