In our vehicles (in this case 2004) Does the Clutch relay (inside of the fuse/relay box under the hood) connect to both the A/C clutch and the Low cutoff switch? Then from the cutoff switch to the A/C and Heat control panel (via blue/orange cable)? I have a feeling that the cable from the control pa...

How to test if A/C LOW PRESSURE SWITCH is faulty?

Cable that plugs into A/C LOW PRESSURE SWITCH @ Accumulator was tested with a meter for voltage, mechanic showed me that it wouldn't light up his meter, thus no power was being sent to the A/C LOW PRESSURE SWITCH @ accumulator, thus A/C clutch would not engage unless jumping the relay @ fuse/relay b...

I'm curious.. would the A/C High Side Pressure Switch be the culprit to prevent the clutch from activating? In other words, only way I can activate the clutch is by jumping the relay with positive battery terminal.. which then the A/C works and blows freezing cold air. Even after refilling it, as so...

Haha dude you panicked awfully fast.

Correct. You need the rubber isolators though . The narrow spiral faces down on the rear, where as it faces up on the front. Yep. I'm going to order new ones. Either Mopar or Prothane (if they sell em). Edit: Wait.. for the front springs.. the narrow end faces up? <_<; http://i45.tinypic.com/5n28x....

Re: Tokicos Arrived... but...

Look at that crap?! How is the spring supposed to stay in place? There's a groove for the spring to sit in? Once it's compressed it won't move, I used to have a set before my BC's. Also, you can tell the difference between the rears by the sway bbar tabs. They only fit one way! They have a slant. T...

Any farm supply, or Harbor Freight would have a grease gun. Even a mini one would work, if the outer tie rods are all you would need it for. A regular sized tube would last for a few years. The grease may dry out a little by then. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Autotec-Mini-grip-greas...
