    Dying LT1

    My 1996 LT1 (automatic, 67K) has been hesitating upon startup but eventually recovers. Following a long period of driving (>1 hour), it sometimes stalls but usually starts right back up. Yesterday, however, it started then stalled 5 seconds later not to start again. I had to be towed home. I...

    Front Bearings

    I need to replace the right front bearings on my '96 LT1. My mechanic prefers to use Timken as that is what he has found to perform the best. However, his supplier is not able to get us one for a couple of weeks. Their price is also high, $350. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to...

    Best Rotors

    I know this has probably been discussed before, but I wanted some fresh opinions and the latest news on what others have tried. I participate in non-competitive track events and have been going through the rotors. Currently, I have some crygenically treated Brembos on my '96 CE LT1 and have...

    Z06 Wheels on a C4

    I am considering putting Z06 wheels on my '96 CE. I have grown little tire of the current look so thought that this upgrade would look nice. A couple of questions though. First, does anyone have pictures that they could share of a C4 with Z06 rims? Second, I thought about buying them on ebay...

    Error codes

    I had my '96 CE through out two codes today that caused the "Service Soon" light to come on:cry :cry. They were P0161 (O2 sensor) and P0332 (knock sensor). First question, did I define the error codes correctly? Second, how easy are each to fix? I assume a new O2 sensor would cure the first...

    Koni Adjustables

    I am considering getting Koni Sport adjustables all around on my 1996 CE. I would like a better ride during daily driving yet still want to be competitive in SCCA Solo II. These seem like the best choice and value out there. Has anyone used these and what has been your experience? Pros/Cons.

    Power Steering Flush

    Any tips on flushing the power steering fluid? My 1996 CE has a little hesitation in the steering boost from time to time and I thought a flush with new fluid would be the best place to start. Is there a drain valve or do I need to have it sucked out from the filler cap? Any help/tips would...

    Power Steering

    I have a 1996 CE LT1 that, on some mornings, has labored steering. I have not noticed any unsual sounds nor have I observed any apparent trend (e.g. cold mornings, sitting in the garage for a couple of days). It does not happen immediately on start up, rather, it takes a few minutes to...

    My '96 Collector Edition was recently struck by another vehicle(:( ). Apparently, the OE replacement body panels (hood front quarter, bumper) will have this NHSTA sticker on them instead of the original VIN sticker. How will this affect future judging?:confused Can I get the original GM VIN...
