Re: Tech Thread - Toyota Hilux...D4D and all older models.

Hey folks, I am not new to Trinituner/Trucks and Pickups nor the Tech Thread since i use to own a navara for 5 years and only sold it last week and prior owned 2 brand new frontiers, 2.5T and 3.0T as well. Nevertheless, i switched over to a Toyota Hilux 3.0 A/T because of the great reviews and simpl...

Re: Tech Thread - Nissan Frontier, Navara, Pathfinder.

Then you should go with genuine shock absorbers. The kind of stress I went through with my van, I am only going to use genuine parts, besides, it pays back in the long run and your ride will thank you... I am guessing you have never changed ATF....

Re: Tech Thread - Nissan Frontier, Navara, Pathfinder.

Maybe in this regard, you may want to use genuine because of sensitivity of tire wear and suspension issues on the navaras. Are you changing all 4 and what is your mileage??

Any of you guys ever used the Amsoil Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid in your vehicle? My van is coming close to 100k and I have never changed the transmission fluid and the original Nissan ATF is difficult to source. I just want to get some feedback on how the the Amsoil ATF performs and the ...

Re: Tech Thread - Nissan Frontier, Navara, Pathfinder.

Go with the Michelin Latitude Tour HP.... It is the best, i had Toyo, Dunlop and Kumho installed and you will definitely feel the difference in terms of ride, comfort and tire wear.... It may cost you extra now to get the Michelin but they pay back for themselves..... By the way, your suspension wil...

TriniVdub, if you have one of those plastic wind shields on your bonnet, get rid of it....

The algae-x had to be relocated because it was vibrating against the body. The heating flex was also vibrating and had to be secured. Bonnet hinges were renewed because...
