A bad radiator cap can cause the coolant to boil; it's the higher pressure that makes for a higher boiling point. If the cap isn't holding pressure the water will boil closer to 212 degrees F, which is far too low for these engines since they run at close to that temperature during normal conditions...

Mine came right out. Then again I'm in CA and the car only had maybe 50k miles at the time. Are the bolts just seized or the arms themselves?

Could be massive toe-out on the passenger side. Did you take these pics without moving the steering wheel I assume? Both wheels appear to be facing out. Try to get one completely straight with the car and check out the other one. It would be turned out quite a bit if your total toe is significant.

I thought there were both 0.72 and 0.81 5th gears, didn't they change to the latter in the 03-04 T-350HD 3.94's for fuel mileage reasons? Or am I going nuts?

I guess since there wasn't a 00 R/T or ACR, the cable clutch bell housing is a non-issue here.

Sounds like a HG, can't hurt to pressure test the cooling system and maybe rent a block tester to check for exhaust gases in the coolant reservoir.

I'd recommend pressure testing the system, it will show the leak clear as day most times. If it's hard to track down, consider adding dye to the coolant and using a black light to find the leak.

If the OE sensor design was updated, I would. The way I see it, both my cars lost the OEM sensors in 30k or less miles, so putting the exact same ones in doesn't make much sense. Even if they're all the same, good for 30k, why buy the more expensive OE version when the aftermarket ones have the same...

Fiberglass ones aren't very expensive, save up for another week and do it once and be done.

Totally depends on where you live and what labor costs there. Also depends if you go with a quality shop or a backyard special. I'd expect around 3-4hrs labor. Here in CA the going rate is $100/hr or more, the math is pretty simple. Springs can be bought used for $100-200 usually, maybe up to $350 n...

Chances are the MFS and/or connector is bad. You may need to pull the column cover off and check the connector. The black/yellow wire from the MFS goes back to the tail lights and the licence light.

Assuming the speed sensor is sending the signal to the PCM, an OBD interface will also receive the information over the data bus. If the PCM doesn't know the vehicle speed, it can't send the data to the OBD port. Best way to tell would be to hook up any OBD software to the car and monitor the speed ...
