[QUOTE="Better than the bubbled out lettering that was on there before I blacked it out
I just did my fuel filter the day before yesterday. I did the spark plugs as well. I used a K&N Fuel filter and was careful with stock plastic clips. I re used the clips.
Being from one of the many real winter states I learned quickly to take advantage of the nice weather to do maintenance ...As you found out its best to keep things fresh ( especially suspension components) on our LSes ...glad to hear the ride is smootherYesterday, I installed a new upper control arm on the passenger side and it fought me the whole way. The arm bolt was stuck in the knuckle as if it was welded there by design. To break it loose, I first cooked the knuckle with a torch and then gave it some shock therapy with some ice water. A few rounds of that broke her loose. Although I had to remove the shock/ strut assembly to remove the bushing bolts, that ended up being a lot easier than expected. And of course, the threads on the stabilizer bar end link were stripped out and corroded so it took me a while to chase the threads just so I could get the nut off. But it was worth it. The car now drives great and with no banging sounds from the front end. The driver's side isn't making any noise (yet) but it's on my to-do list before winter sets in.
Fixed the yellow connector under the driver side seat on the Kleen. Airbag light gone. Replaced the struts on hood. Blacked out the lights on black g1 LSE bumper. Pretty productive day.
