Re: Which Denso replacement alternator for 2006 3.5 Vue

Thanks for the reply Atikovi.

I'm assuming acdelco would be good, at least it should be OEM specs, but you're the first I've heard of installing one on the forum. How long have you had it in for?...

Re: 2006 audio system overhaul questions and opinions

Ha. No I don't think so... I'm sure I'll get flack from some audio folks, but I prefer to not quiet outside noise so I can hear if my vehicle develops any weird sounds.

Can't tell you how many...

Re: Suspension and other suggestions for higher mileage 2005 3.5 Vue
