    Stripped Stud

    Hey, Couldn't find a better place to stick this one. I've got at least 1 stripped stud on the back left wheel. 98' Mazda B2500, larger (10"?) drums. My question is: How easily can I get these studs out? Do I HAVE to pull the axle? Any help appreciated!

    Mid-Life Refit

    Well, the truck rolled over 160 000 KM's the other month and I've decided to finish up its mid-life refit. I'll be doing quite a bit of highway driving this summer to a new job (which will hopefully turn full time once I graduate) and want to tune up the ol' 2.5L. Here's what I'm thinking...

    Can Anyone Identify This??

    First off - not related to a vehicle as far as I know... It's a mystery object given to my class to try to identify. It's about 30 lbs, 2.5 ft long, and has two electric motors. The large motor turns the jackscrew running the length of the shaft. This moves the smaller motor assembly up and...

    Thank god (or buddah or whoever) for friends!

    So I'm driving home from school today after just dropping my buddy off at his '89 B2 and noticed my steering got a little sloppy and my brakes seemed soft. I pulled over to take a look and didn't see anything, figured it was just me overthinking something. Pull back out and hit 50kph and the...
