You could do it. You need a separator tool. You did say you were a novice, so what's your time ...

You could do it. You need a separator tool. You did say you were a novice, so what's your time worth? It will probably take you a while. $1100 all your problems are fixed,trucks aligned does not sound to bad to me. Your going to have to take it to get aligned and trans flushed anyway.

If you want to do something change your oil and belt yourself. Best of luck

If you're going to have the trans fluid changed why not have the bands adjusted at the same time.

Backseat, B&B headers and pipes

Hey I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on some headers. My truck already has magnaflow on it so I won't be getting a catback at this time. For an 06 Quad cab, and for B&B, I need to get the headers ~$1800, high flow cats ~$850 part number (071-FTRU-0446) (Front Section To B&B Header w/Catalytic Converter), and the quad cab extension pipes ~$215? On jegs I've got the cart at about $2900. Yikes!

Also, I posted a couple pictures of the latches on the back wall behind the QC back seats. I wanted the ability to pull the back/upright part down so I could wrap a seat cover around it. Basically, when you pull the bottom part of the seat upwards it also lifts the back upwards, but latches prevent the back from popping loose (to where you can pull it down). So, if you loosen the bolts holding the seats down (on mine it was 18mm) and lift up on the back you will clear the latches on the back wall. After that you need to flip the latches on the back wall upside down (used 10mm to remove bolts). IF the picture loads (it hasn't while I'm typing this) you can see the upside latch is lower. This will allow you to clear the latches when lifting upwards on the back. Do that for the others (four total) and you can now pull the back down when you need to. It won't fall down on you either. By flipping the latches it just allows you to clear them when you lift upwards on the back. Hopefully that makes sense.

I'd be happy to set you up with headers and exhaust for much less.

You wrote that your front seat slides when braking. I also have an '06 QC that does the same thing and it's REALLY annoying!

Did you ever get it fixed? I'd love to know "the fix" or how much it cost you to fix it.

I haven't fixed it yet! I guess I got used to it lol. But it is annoying. Now that you mention it maybe I will look around under the seat. I've wondered if it is just loose on the rail and all that needs done is tightening of a bolt. I'll let you know. It is strange that no mechanic has mentioned it yet, though. I've had it in a bunch of shops a lot recently and I assume they test drive it at the end to make sure everything runs ok.

I also wonder if its a bigger issue, at least for me. Periodically the airbag light will come on. When that happens I lose air conditioning and heated seats. It doesn't throw a code though. One dealership thought it may be an issue with the occupant restraint control (ORC), which may be located in or around the seat. I haven't researched that a whole lot. It has been known to short circuit... can cause the airbag light. Another thought it was a control module within the dash somewhere b/c of the ac, heated seats issue. Someday I'll probably get it fixed.
