I've had no complaints about the compressor for tires (and balls and such). I'd much rather leave it working than go buy something else... My mechanic seemed to think it would cost more to replace the air shocks than to replace them with his recommendation. I haven't done any shopping around, so I don't know if that's reality... Was just wondering if anyone's been in a similar situation or been given this recommendation.

I'll post here when I decide with how things turn out.

I took the Aztek on the Iowa Gambler 500 and the Tek showed me what it had out on the trail. I have decided I am going to run this thing into the ground. Literally.

I am going to move forward on the Rear differential re-build. I will try to update this post on the how to's. The clutch fibers found in the differential are probably from the wet clutch packs.

I haven't replaced the shocks on my Tek as they are one of the few things that still work.

The compressor runs separate lines to the shocks and to the compressor on the back. So if you did replace the shocks, it would still work as long as you clip the air lines underneath or leave them open. They are pretty easy to see if you get up on a lift.

I will say I was pretty underwhelmed with the compressor, probably because of such a small tank. I wouldn't rely on the compressor to do any tasks such as airing up a tire.

Regretfully, my Pontiac Aztek died.  I'm looking to hopefully sell it to an enthusiast who will rebuild it and give it a good home.  The only other option is to junk it, and I don't want to see that happen Sad  

The body is in GREAT shape for a 2002 vehicle.  There's no rust, and only visible paint fading on the front bumper (it was replaced once).  It has normal wear and tear, but for the most part, everything works well.  

Please let me know if you're interested soon as I'll need to make the decision to have it hauled to the scrap yard within a week or so.  I'll attach more pictures soon, but will take pictures/information upon request.  Please email me for any inquiries.

My 2001 Aztek has a towing package with the air shocks, I think one of them has a leak or something. The self-check the compressor usually does for a few seconds now runs for a few minutes and the rear end is jacked all the way up, like it's compensating for a heavy load. I sometimes hear some deflaty-balloon noises right after I turn the car off and open the door.

Anyway, I stopped in for a quick word with my mechanic and he recommended replacing the system with self-leveling heavy duty shocks. Is that a good idea? Will I lose the ability to use my compressor for tires/air mattress/basketballs? I don't do any towing, that hitch is all rusted out, anyway.

Anyone replaced these with something else?

LED lights, unlike HIDs, are designed to produce a beam similar to Halogen bulbs. It is a direct replacement. Just get good quality bulbs!

I have another exterior build thread going, so check that out too. I have a bunch of old school car audio and new stuff laying around, so I have been working on building up the system.

I just had these 6.5" infinity Perfect 6.1 mid range woofers laying around, so I did a test fit. They were just slightly too big, and they needed a little modification inside the factory adapter, but I made it work. I ended up cutting the back off the baffle around the magnet instead of the little half moon because it wouldn't clear the window! It's still protected from the elements and creates a nice barrier between the speaker and the plastic. I'll probably do the head unit next, then turn my attention to the wiring and the amps.

Put a little weather stripping just to make sure the old squashed material had an extra seal.

I'm using the stock wiring for now, but I will most likely just rewire the doors for the 2 way setup in the front and the rear will be left alone, maybe just replacement speakers. I cleaned up the gold terminals because they were a little corroded. I can already tell that the bass response is better, even with the stock radio (for now) and the stock wiring. Now I have to go check to make sure they fit in the door panel's hole. I might have to trim those up a little too.
