#77 of 126 Re: Trailer hitch [lcw1]
Oct 06, 2007 (8:21 pm)
I went to U-Haul to have them install a trailer hitch. It took 30 mins to install. No special tools were required, just two holes were made and 2 existing were used. Paid $137.50 hitch, $50 labor, $5 warranty. I didn't want wiring as I use it only for bikes.

#81 of 126 Bolts adjacent to rear windshield wiper

There are two, typically black, bolts on both the right and the left side of the windshield wiper blade in the back of the 05 Maxx.
Mine has rusted out and I'd like to unscrew them and replace them with shiney new black ones.
Anyone know what these are called or how to find them?

Any chance you could provide a specific part number so I can be sure I'm ordering the exactly right thing for my stereo? Just got it replaced under warranty and they used a radio designed for the older models with the plain black spinners.

This is a company who "Claims" they make a lowering spring for the Malibu Maxx. Anyone use them before. When i get back from Iraq im going to trick out my BOO with various upgrades, Painted headlights, tint taillights, upgraded stereo, LED underglow, LED interior accents, etc.

with all the front suspension problems the Maxx's experience...I would be careful adding a lowering kit or adjusting the OEM suspension......BTW I have found no sites offering true performance upgrades for the Maxx in almost 6 years of owning one.......

^what performance upgrades are you looking for? i'm gonna put a CAI in and a flowmaster 80 series muffler in my '06 maxx ss. think that's about it for performance mods. i'd keep the stock suspension if you own a ss. just throw on some 18s or 19s to fill that wheel well. i went with 18" aftermarket rims wrapped in michelin pilot sport a/s plus tires (235/50) and that size tire barely fits, but everything sounds good so far after a few hundred miles. haven't heard/felt/smelt any rubbing/clearance cues yet. and i don't know about 20" rims. they are too heavy for this sporty car and they might not even ride well without modifying the stock suspension w/ air or something. better leave that lowriding stuff for the show cars.
