I know that there is a "seal" located underneath on the transmission that I will need to replace fairly soon. It's kind of over the "dog bone" mount. Also I will need to change out my strut mount on my diver side. I installed a perfomance suspension and I'm kind of not liking the ride. Don't get me wrong...it handles likes it's on rails, but ride can be a bit bumpy at times...so I'm thinking about going back to stock. Also, my battery light keeps coming on...I found a wire that is not getting a good connection to the alt, but I don't know if that is something I can replace myself or I do need to take it in? The wire is red and is set next to a blue wire and a black wire. Well, the red wire came out of it's harness and won't stay in, but I don't know if I can just "unclip" those wires or if they are permant to the alt? If you send me a PM with a contact number, I will call you later sometime and let you know when I will be going back to Dallas. Again, thanks for the response.
