#730 of 761 Re: What brake shoes do you recommend?? [wise1]
Sep 26, 2011 (6:40 am)
I have a 2004 Titan that has been a nightmare with the front and rear breaks. In defense of Nissan, I have 197,000 mile and have only paid for one brake job. I put on drilled and slotted rotors with ceramic brakes and wow, what a difference. I have about 40,000 mile on them and I could not be any happier. I purchased off ebay, 4 rotors and shoes for $250.00. They came out of Chicago. The pads are Evolution brand. NO break dust, NO issues.

Now I have to try and remember as I haven't owned that hardbody for some years. I've used Raybestos for over 20 years with no problems. Well I did have one on a '02 Yukon where the counter guy at Checker's gave me the wrong set.
I usually order it online to be picked up at a local store. Since O'Reilly's bought out Checkers I've been ordering online with them.
Come to think about it even the cheapest of shoes would work ok since these are rear drums we are talking about. Most of the braking power comes from the front.

Thanks, I'll do some research on Raybestos and see what's available. These are the original shoes as the truck now has 788?? miles on it. I took the drums off and cleaned them up so that's one thing out of the way. 25+ years so I'm grateful they have lasted this long but they are getting very thin.
#733 of 761 91 Nissan p/u: No electrical except headlights
Oct 17, 2011 (7:34 pm)
I was driving my 91 Nissan p/u, parked it and turned it off. turned the key to wind up the windows and the car was literally dead. After about 20 minutes all power came back on and I was able to drive it home no problem. After turning off the engine again the same thing happened.
When I turn the key there is nothing. No dash lights, no fuel pump noise etc. When I open the door the dome light doesn't come on. When I close the door, the dash clock comes on, but goes off when I open the door. The funny thing is the headlights work and are full strength. The battery is less than one year old.
Any help would be appreciated.

#736 of 761 95 KingCab - Radio/Dome light fuse keeps blowing
Nov 08, 2011 (12:24 pm)
Help!!! My dome light fuse (also includes radio and clock) keeps blowing - took dash board partly apart and tried to trace - couldn't find anything. Does anybody have a similar experience or a good idea on spot under the dash where wires consistently get rubbed bare and start causing a hard short - I tried putting a in a 25 amp fuse and it blew that instantly. Help!!! One guy suggested a relay switch but I can't fine one that works on this circuit. Another guy suggested I need to replace the entire fuse panel..... Sounds pretty unlikely.....
#737 of 761 95 nissan pickup HUB BOLT trouble
Dec 13, 2011 (4:09 pm)
rear wheel drive, 4 cylinder automatic - the main hub bolts on the front bearings are coming loose, requiring bearings to be repacked. The front tires are balding on the inside as a result. When I repacked the bearings, I noticed the main hub bolts were already loose. Only days after repacking the bearings, they are loose again. ANY IDEAS? alignment?

After becoming disappointed with Ford and their quality I am considering a Nissan Frontier. Years ago I looked at one and was surprised at how bare bones it was (but not the price). Please give me honest feedback on good or bad on this truck. Also where is it mfg.?
