Re: Rear suspension subframe

Hey all. Last week I backed into a retaining wall at my mom's house. Did more damage than I initially thought. I have the rear suspension cradle out of the car, and my brother (he's a mechanic) learned that there may be another vehicle other than Freestyles and T-rexs that share the rear subframe? ...

Re: Thanks for the add!

I should have mentioned that she has 168,000+ miles. Also, it does have a gasket between the throttle body and the intake right? I only ask because I couldn't find one to order on rockauto. Of course I can always try O'Reilly's or Merle's here in town. Never messed with the 3.0 before.

07 FWD 163K miles

We are lucky apparently, our Freestyle has been ours since 2012. We got it used with 73K miles, but we needed a bigger car than our 2002 Kia Rio to shuttle two kiddos in carseats. She now has over 163 thou and just now is getting a misfire on cyl #4. Not to bad for the stock spark plugs. Probably go...
