Re: 1997 Saturn SW2 (HELP)

A number of folks here have seen corrosion issues with swaybar ends over the years, especially with the machined ends that are mated with the bar/tubes. From the symptoms, I'd give that very...

Re: Failed Wheel Bearing and more

I've had much better luck with the consistent quality of SKF bearings.

Timken not so much since the company split/corporate games/exec payouts gone wild several years back.

Re: " clutch out" and replacing motor mounts

I replaced my OEM clutch hydraulics about 2 years ago (excessive squeaking above 90F) and the Luk kit was a straight replacement -- and $45, so not a huge cost.

Re: Wheel Bearings Timkin vs. NSK

Re: Plus or Minus

Re: Fuel line leak at fitting in driver's side rear

This one for $24.79? I don't recall others here comment on their experience with Marmon quality -- but I could be wrong.
