thanks a lot for the detailed response. i'll get the tranny fluid changed tomorrow. also, can you give me the number of Nasir Sh so i can check for the prices of the ball joints? he's in khi or lhr?
to clarify, i have the interior (under dash) parcel shelf that i got made myself and love it! and i'd rather stick with my side mirrors till i find good quality chrome ones cause mine a much better than those hideous black ones.
i'm a little confused about the rims / tires. you mentioned its best to go for the original steel rims and get the adapter plate out. (though that's a separate debate cause i don't understand how changing the PCD would affect the suspension as long as the new rims are the same size and weight as the originals), i'll change to the original rims so if anyone has any leads, pls point me to them. as for tires, you mentioned to use the new city ones, but i'm guessing the mini pajero tires are narrower and taller, hence closer to the original. pls sort out my confusion here.
i still need to address the engine knocking issue.
please elaborate further on the engine soundproofing kit & the dynamat.
thanks for your time
