I didn't expect my HG's to last to 210k miles, so I didn't do the WP during the first TB replacement. However, I replaced the ENTIRE TB kit and the WP when I did HG's at 150k miles. And I will...

It sounds like the tech that installed the remote start did something wrong, (or the battery is just toast). My guess is that there is a constant draw on the battery. It should be easily rectified...

Since you are not removing the motor, just do as Quadrozontal said and remove the 2 nuts holding the motor mounts to the x-member and the dogbone and you'll have plenty of room.

With a misfire on all four, I'd start by checking the T.B. It sounds like it jumped a couple teeth. I could also see a bad fuel pressure reg causing that.

I used felpro on my 04 with no problems so far. I think 6 star or cometic are generally referred to as the two best options though.

I would first think it's a bent rim. If not though, it could be something in the bearing/hub area. Next possibility is that you damaged the differential. Was the blowout in the front or rear?

I would get another quote. $5800 for a fender, bumper, and door repair seems quite high. Give his ins. co. a call and ask if you can work with them to find a better repair option.

Welcome to our forum. The core support is indeed welded in, but it is not much of a structural member. I cut mine completely out, welded on flanges, and made it a bolt-in unit when I did my H6 swap.
