I replaced the left rear window regulator. Honestly, not a bad repair at all. Took me about an hour. For me, the window clip is not what broke, instead the regulator anchor for the cables broke apart and the cable unwound.

Anyway, I have my window back now so that's a plus!

Replaced an axle seal at the front differential as well as the o-ring. Hopefully, this will stop the oil leak. If people are going to replace the axle seal, I would suggest that you buy a Genuine Factory seal. The Factory seal comes with a plastic guard that prevents the little spring on the seal from popping out as you pound the seal into the differential. If you are too cheap to buy factory parts, you can just fill the seal with grease where the spring is located to keep it from popping out. You can make a cheap seal driver by using PVC pipe bought at the Home Improvement stores. Bring the seal so you will get the right diameter connector. I purchase the cleanout plug that screwed into the PVC coupler so that I would have something to pound against.

What spacers did you go with? Trying to settle on a set for my 4.8is.

Installed 2nd pre-owned accelerator pedal. Finally cleared fault code on that. Also installed new post-cat O2 sensor #1 to clear those faults. Surprisingly, the O2 sensor came out a lot easier that I expected, considering the difficulty some others have experienced. Other than those issues, still going strong at 164k.
