Not sure where to post this, figured here was as good start. I don't frequent these forums often, but I will need to spend some time searching for more information here ..
So, the wife crashed the 07 TBSS last month. Its her primary vehicle but she has a spare in the meantime. I've gone back and forth with insurance since then and now I am ready to start the repairs myself. Additionally, while the truck is down, I am going to attempt some other issues that have come up over the years.
I've already ordered a bunch of replacement OEM parts for the front end; what's actually available, and some of the discontinued parts seem to still be available at various sources.
Here's what else I'm looking to fix while I'm at it ..
Body work - collecting parts currently, fenders, headlights and things ..
Tires - Need a new set of tires, and one of the TPMS sensors has been intermittent for a while. Reprogram or buy relearn tool, I'm not sure.
Suspension - drivers side CV shaft boot is torn and flung the grease all over the wheel components. Some of the bushings on the control arms are completely destroyed or worn out. End links look pretty beat up. Also, rear airbags deflate overnight but they work fine otherwise. Probably good to replace soon due to age and not to overwork the compressor.
Exhaust - I've noticed a ticking sound, looks like a few of the manifold to head bolts have broken ( more missing on the passenger side ), looks like a pain to repair in vehicle.
Stereo - half of the speakers stopped working, she would prefer to keep the head unit, I'm thinking about aftermarket speakers here.
HVAC - seems to blow hot even when you don't want it to. Won't blow cold from what I am told. Not sure which actuator or blend door is causing this, I'll need to do some searching and trouble shooting on this issue ..
Brakes - seem worn, need replacement but the OEM seem to not work all that good to begin with. Looking to upgrade, the Bear kit is the only big brake kit I can find at the moment.
Thats a lot and that probably doesnt cover everything now that i look it over ... if anybody has any good information or can point me in any direction that would help a lot. Thanks for reading
