      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

'04 Tahoe Shaft Seals

Recommended Posts

Had the oil changed on my Tahoe last weekend and they told me the front differential shaft seals were leaking and that it's common in these type of vehicles. They gave me an estimate of $485 to replace with new (and improved) seals. Is this truly common with these trucks?

Thanks

so you're saying if there's not a noticeable amount on the garage floor, I should be in decent shape? I could always use an extra fishing trip!!!

Thanks

Just take a look underneath the truck, if there are drips hanging, then you should look into having it done, not a huge priority, if there is just wetness and no drips, enjoy the extra fishing trip wink

My brother-in-law has the problem. I think he said his estimate was double yours. He's keeping an eye on his fluid level. His drip stain is pretty big.

My 94 was leaking for about 75,000 miles and I only had to add fluid once. About as long as it was leaking oil out the rear engine seal. Don't let them run dry and you'll be fine. If it really bothers you and you do want it fixed go to your local tech college, they're alot cheaper.

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
