Q1: How can I tell if my truck’s sway bar bushings need replacement?
A: A sway bar prevents the body of a truck from leaning excessively and ensures it remains stable when turning. If there is a looseness and "excessive play" when turning or driving over bumps, this is a good indication that the rubber bushings holding the sway bar link in place could be wearing out and in need of replacement.
Q2: How does a performance exhaust system affect sound and noise levels?
A: A performance exhaust system generally sounds more powerful than is the case with the majority of stock systems. Larger pipes that are used by standard models create the rumbling noise.
Q3: What are the benefits of upgrading to high-performance brake pads and rotors?
A: An upgrade to high-performance brake pads could provide many benefits, including increased durability, superior appearance, increased resale value, improvements to stopping power, and enhanced braking feel. High-performance rotors can combat brake fade and decrease stopping distance.
Q4: What is the role of a clutch and flywheel kit in a truck’s transmission system?
A: The flywheel is responsible for connecting the engine and transmission via the clutch to send power to the wheels of a truck. The flywheel stores energy to balance the engine to ensure its continued good performance.
Q5: What is the function of fuel injector connectors in a truck’s fuel system?
A: Fuel that is under high pressure needs transporting from the rail or pump to the injector inlet to run the engine and power the truck. This is done via the injector inlet connector tube, aka the fuel feed tube, which is set through the side of the head of the cylinder.
