  1. So frustrated. Ordered my shifter back in December and delivery date kept getting pushed back. Was finally supposed to ship this week. Nope! Tried to push it back to middle of March. Back to shopping. I do think I have an answer for the park/ neutral wire for pin 34 on the pcm. It took a long time for my tiny brain to comprehend how to use a single switch on the shifter to interrupt power to the starter when not in park and provide ground to the pcm when it is in park. I believe the answer is to switch ground with the neutral safety switch. When in park the switch grounds b
  2. Those look awesome. What tires are you going to run? I don't want to stretch mine and can't find a lot of choices in 15".
  3. One of the big problems is reading through 10-20 year old threads and getting great recommendations only to find out they just don’t make the tires anymore. Especially in 15 and 16. I’d like to run 245/45r16 but only see 50 series I want the same all around but it seems like different offsets in front and back is common. So I won’t be able to rotate anyway. The JR19 rims I like don’t come in 9.5. The rotas don’t come in colors I like. Want all bronze. so here are my thoughts right now. Front 16x9 -15 with 245/50 rear 16x9 -25 with 255/50 will I have issue
  4. Good advice. I was thinking about that. I just worry about getting enough traction in the rear and clearance in the front. I would be happy with 245 all around.
  5. Any help with wheel choice would be appreciated!
  6. Hello again. I am finishing up my LS swap https://forums.hybridz.org/topic/132113-spdrcr-ls1-and-4l60e-build-thread/ and it’s time to pick flares, wheels, and tires. I have been through about 40 pages of the wheel thread and have like 60 or more to go. I was going to go with a 15” rim but tires are nowhere to be found! (I do not want to run drag radials) I am going to use lowering springs (eibach or zcardepot) KYB struts and wheel flares. I have chosen my wheels but could use some final advice on width, offset, and tires. I am going to use 16”JR19 they come
  7. Only 3 big items left - wrap up in car wiring and mount ecm and fuse box - install shifter - back ordered - Take to shop for exhaust
  8. Ok seriously. How do you get the clutch pedal out? I can see there is a bolt or something with my mirror. About to send the kid up there. also could not get the dimmer or odometer reset out. Did get the gauges wired up. Could not get the dimmer to work right. It was opposite of the factory lights. Also could not get the high beam indicator. Something with the ground vs 12v. Got tired of fiddling with it. I want change to all red lLEDs in the future anyway.
  9. Alright. Got the dash cap off. Can’t get the gauges out with it on. yup I see why that’s on there the problem I was having the odometer reset cable was wrapped around everything. After I got that loose just popped all the connectors off. A few screws and the old gauges come apart easily I have new speedhut gauges to go in. they come with a ring that almost fits into the factory housing i ground down the nubs a little bit and it fits right in for a tight friction fit! Perfect fit. So happy about that.
  10. Good news is I went out for spin last night. Got some gas and did about 5 miles. No transmission issues! No more pressure building up. So either the line was kinked or the tube was clogged. I didn’t get on it at all cuz I have no exhaust yet. I did create a another tool if anyone want to buy one. It’s-a-don’t-spray-shift-juice-all-over-my-car tool. Luckily it wasn’t need.
  11. #$&@#$@#$! DASHCAP!! @#@*#$@##! GAUGES! You know what I’m saying? Struggling to get the old gauges out. Got that urge to just start pulling real hard. Figured I’d come look at pictures of finished cars or puppies or something and relax for a minute.
  12. Thanks for the encouragement. I’ve always wanted to do a project like this. I’m having a pretty good time.
  13. have you looked at these? https://zcardepot.com/products/coil-spring-set-stock-and-lowered-240z-260z-280z?variant=21384265269361
  14. I am so glad you posted this. I have the same question. When I look through threads most of the stuff isn’t available just like you said. I was also looking at the kyb. I am finishing up my ls swap and am looking for some wide tires and better suspension. Sorry I can’t help with the answer but I’ll tag along for some info.
  15. OHMYGHERD! tranny woes continue. Checked the level and it was low so I added some more. Still was getting some air out of the dipstick but I thought it might have been from being low on fluid. What do I know about auto tranny? Nada. anyway, took it out for another drive. Shifting much better.. and when I stopped at the end of the street... poof! fluid goes everywhere. And I mean everywhere. All over the whole car, the paint all the way to the trunk, the window, the entire engine. The dipstick popped out from the pressure and the fluid hit the rubber stopper and then bounced back
