  2. Skyjacker Dual Steering Stabilizer Install 96 b2300

    Ive been going through growing pains for a while since installing coil spacers on my 96 b2300. Had hella positive camber for quite some time and steering was a disaster.

  8. 3-28-2014 freshman

    It seems I have a knack for buying a used vehicle that turns into an all out obsession. My brand spankin new (to me) 1996 2wd Mazda B2300 2.3l with 8 fricken spark plugs and a manual transmission is quickly proving to be no exception. My input will likely be infrequent however unless I do...
