that's not EGR, its the Pulsair system. it doesn't affect performance but (when working) you have cleaner exhaust gasses. it works by allowing a small amount of fresh air to the exhaust valve ports, it creates an afterburning effect only reason you want to block/remove it is when the 4 pipes going t...

Re: Leaf Spings

you can't fit the springs wrong way around as the centering point for the axle isn't located in the center of the leafspring.

Re: Knocking noise on rear axle

it's not likely that the knocking is from that rod (commonly known as the anti-tramp bar on here)

prime suspect is the rear jacking point being able to touch the leafspring, that happens quite often.
also, if you lowered it quite a bit it might be the shock absorber that catches on the axle
