So I bought a high mileage 2003 from a member here it's been lifted using xc90 struts. I have cleaned it up a bit, I ordered some. Fluids and parts from ipd. The cars seems to run fine. I have 3 issues that I am trying to sort out. The first is , it needs exhaust manifold gaskets . The stealership wants 750 for this, is this a job I can Do with basic hand tools in my garage? I am a decent parts changer but it looks like a ton of things need to moved to get to them. Second more annoying issue is that the CCM has been changed. The ac doesn't work and I am not sure if anything does what it supposed to in terms of what buttons do what. All I know is it is hot as hell as the time. Any suggestions as to what is happening? It seems like the temp control is useless and he air doesn't seem to go from different vents. This I can deal with as it going to get cold here in VT. And lastly the problem that I think has e potential to bite me is the ass is the front dif. It seems when I turn the wheel all the way to make a sharp turn, the front wheels hop like I was driving a jeep on dry pavement in 4x4. It's almost like its a locked axle. I am not sure if this is normal , or if the strut/ larger tire combo is the issue? I have not had my wife in it to test this out as I walk next to the wheels. Anyways I am sure to have a ton of questions . Thanks Matt.
