Whiteline are a decent bushing. A diff brace may help too.

Thanks.
When you say exhaust here I'm assuming you mean muffler. If so make sure you check the picture of the new muffler to make sure it will fit your current bracket. The 03-04's use a different bracket than the 05-06's and a lot of companies don't address this when they advertise their systems.

And yes, if you have basic tool skills, unless your current exhaust is rusted shut it's a very easy replacement DIY.

And if you don't mind spending a few more dollars, you can easily swap out the exhaust hanger bracket on the car from 05-06 to the 03-04 bracket (or vice versa) to accommodate the new exhaust system. If I remember correctly, it was like $20 for the bracket.

EDIT: Correction, it's $30 for the 03-04 exhaust hanger bracket - https://conceptzperformance.com/infi...400_p_7153.php

Not sure if anyone's done it, but you most certainly CAN. I would only do that if it was strictly a track car tho. BBKs on street cars are really just for looks, and just doing the front would look dumb af.

That's ridiculous for only calipers. If it comes with rotors and pads and lines it's another story.

For reals? UsuAlly comes with lines for that price. That's usually the going rate for used sets. But why would u want used rotors and pads. Better getting new ones start off fresh

06 G35X, Today I noticed my analog clock is no longer working (time stopped) and the buttons won't move the minute hand. It still lights up when the headlights are on.

I did some searching and saw a fuse as being the initial thing to check so I tried that. I am not sure if it matters, but the spare fuse location has a fuse that is like double the height of the one it would be replacing, but still 10 amp. I tried it anyway and didn't seem to help so my initial follow up questions are:

1) Is it likely that the spare fuse is also bad or incorrect and I need to buy a pack of fresh ones to try?
2) How can I check the stock fuse to see if it is bad or not? I have some super cheap multimeter that I never use so I guess I just need to know what setting to put it on to check for connectivity on the fuse.
3) What else should be affected by this fuse if it is bad, maybe I can verify that way as well?
4) What other possible fixes can I check if the fuse is not my problem?
5) Is it possible that the clock itself broke and I need to find a replacement? Seems odd that a simple thing like that could break, but I suppose it is possible...

I've had a lot of little issues the past few months with a few dash LEDs dieing, possible fuel level sensor failing, airbag light blinking at times, but never seeming to show an actual error code, etc. If things keep popping up I may need to look into switching cars before a major repair comes, but I would rather not right now.

To test a fuse you want to check continuity. Put your multimeter on resistance (Ohms, or the horseshoe) and touch the wires together from your MM. should come out with a reading. If that works, put the MM wires on both ends of the fuse. If you get numbers on the MM the fuse works. If not, replace.

Why is this leaking, or rather, from where exactly, I suppose!?

This is the steering rack.

I don't like oil coming out from under my cars.Random Little Question Thread-photo273.jpgRandom Little Question Thread-photo804.jpg
