    Any Recommended Transmission Shops in Southern California?

    I used Leon's Transmissions in Costa Mesa - they have 9 locations including LA area. Did nice work on my 2006 after another shop did a poor job.

    Fuel Ventilation?

    My 2006 does this with higher fill rate gas pumps. When it happens put two fingers between the lip of the cars fuel fill tube and the vapor seal on the gas pump hose to allow a bit of venting. Basically it puts the black plasic spring area back slightly and solves the problem.

    Shimmy / Road Force Balance

    Well in the case of Grand Prix you would be incorrect as they where early adopters having a Hunter machine back in the early 90's (believe they still have it). I've watched their techs in the past RFB and as you state it does take time to do properly. Regardless, I dont disagree with the...

    Shimmy / Road Force Balance

    Im simply stating what I've been told and the people at these shops - i.e. Grand Prix Performance - know what they are doing and have done it a very long time.

    Wants to die when pressing gas

    Most suggest a 1.0mm Gap and you should always double check prior to install. Did this start right after the plug change or later? If right after did you possibly damage a COP or associated wire? When I did plugs I did the COP's at the same time.

    As far as raising the rear its optional but many believe helpful - I would say about a foot should do the trick.

    Aftermarket head unit questions, post some pictures of yours!

    I went with a Kenwood Excelon DDX9905S - paid $409 for it on eBay a couple of years ago. I used the "Metra 70-5521 Radio Wiring Harness for Ford 03-Up Amp" and "Metra 95-500S double DIN Installation Kit for 2000-2006 Lincoln LS" to mount up the head unit.

    New tires

    I am currently running BF Goodrich G-Force Comp-2 A/S plus Tires. I recently replaced my worn DWS's with them simply because they were the best pricing via Costco. Good tire w/ positive review at Tire Rack (good place to go for specs and reviews).
