    Buy the equipment. Axle stands are $80 a set.
    Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the end of the world?

      Ummm, the car won't be lifted off the ground and supported by a shitty jack.... wont even be taking the wheels off.

      Anywho, consensus seems to be a bad idea so will take to mechanic and pay him to do it.

        Ummm "on a very similar line", I wasn't talking about your specific job just one that was similar.

          Are those electric anti rust systems on 4x4’s actually worthwhile? Seems useless to me but so many people seem to have them fitted?

            100% snake oil. The physics / chemistry doesn't work.

              I need to run a hose/line from my ISCV to my turbo inlet piping (currently its sucking atmo unfiltered), will a "standard" rubber hose collapse under vaccum?

              hose such as this - https://www.golebysparts.com.au/prod...f6ea4d4a&_ss=r

                Hmmm - there are some super car nerds on here so this one is worth a shot.

                I have a 2000 Stagea RS-V, so factory RWD auto. Pretty sure the rear wheel bearings are flogged out but can't figure out which wheel bearings are the appropriate ones to buy. Anyone have any ideas?

                  Genuine number is 43210AA100 which interchanges with a small handful of JDM models like a couple of 2WD R34s, S13 and Z32 but also with Aus delivered S14 and S15

                  The earlier number that it supersedes from fits Aus delivered Z32 as well

                  edit: wrong part number, I was looking at the hub

                    the earlier number also suits RWD R33 turbo (and like 3 versions of non-turbo but I wouldn't search for DE bearings because that will just stitch you up because the majority of them have a different part number)

                    and all RWD R32

                      If it’s 400 series hose it should have some Gates markings on there but pretty vague description that it just says rubber hose and doesn’t specify what elastomer. If you can find some Nitrile hose then you’ll be fine. Just don’t use EPDM that’s typically used for coolant.

                        There will be bugger all vacuum upstream of the throttle, but i'm guessing that hose would be fine upstream of the throttle too.that should do fine.

                        i'd be looking for something cheaper, but i'm a tightarse, I "found" some 5/8" refrigerant hose (which is probably more expensive than that 400 series stuff) to use for breather hose if I ever needed it, haven't yet.

                          thanks guys will take on that advice.

                            2017 X-Trail with 69,000 k’s on it. Front pads & discs are fine, but rear pads are toast. Is this usual for them? Would have thought fronts would be done before rears.

                              Got a custom front leaf spring hanger, and just got a question regarding which bolt to use.
                              Option A is a bolt where the threaded section is too short, and if I were to use it, two washers would be required per end.

                              Option B is the opposite, the threaded part is too long and the threads will sit against the hanger.

                              Option C would be to find an exact length bolt (may be tricky)

                                Add two washers.
