    i have an upper radiator hose leak, or I would be near there in Plano soon at corporate meeting with someone intelligent to get to the bottom of it all
    it would be nice for local dealer to change this hose for me for a 'reasonable' price so I could be on my way
    now i gotta fill up a cart from Camelback with bits of this and that and wait for hose to arrive before any out-of-town adventures :pout:
    a dude from Chicago approached me at the Shell pump interested in buying my truck, says he used to have a 2000 model, showed him the engine compartment to satisfy his curiousity and the thing is still leaking after I rotated the clamps 90 degrees, this must be original hose since its clamp indented the whole way around. Cannot risk a 200 mile trip and back to KCMO with a coolant leak, or is ok to drive with no coolant in the system

    I risked a 1600 mi trip with a HG leak while towing, lol, but all my hoses are new and with fresh constant tension clamps. Just change the upper hose, it takes like 15 mins... the gates hoses from Oriellys are great, hell pretty much all rubber hose is made in USA still, it's one of the things we still do. Get some constant tension clamps and call it a year.

    That's just what the book time on the job is, they count the time to drain and fill the coolant fully, but you only need to drain enough that it's below the hose. The tech has to make money, at 90mins, thats roughly $150 in labor which to the tech is maybe $70 in their check

    i was just gonna elevate the front end a bit and pull the hose off and see what can get into a catch pan and hose it all down, not sure how much liquid I am gonna lose, this coolant is all new from a couple months ago and approx 7500 miles

    or is it going to make a big huge mess in the timing belt area, major leak (slow drip) is right on top of the cover

    I try to keep it off belts, especially the timing belts. Don't want slippery belts. Just yank the lower hose off and let it go into a clean bucket and you can pour it back in after.

    @Empty_Lord just ordered the OME lift, do you have to unbolt the lower control arm to remove/install the front struts, I’ve watched tutorials where the do and they don’t

    Joshua tree forest :notsure: if you're out in the desert anyway

    We do have heavily forested areas in the mountains but when I think of 'the woods' I think of flat areas with a dense amount of deciduous trees

    If your coils are coming already assembled to the shock you literally just bolt that sucker in. 3 bolts up top and one through the bottom.
