?'s wierd idle and abs light

so...ever since i installed my new springs, my idle has been around 1500 or so, where it was at around 800 before. and my abs light is on!!! #@$@% $@#!!!!!!! but my thinking on the ABS light is that when i was taking the front dampers out, the cable that runs to the brakes (the one that can unsnap together) came...unsnapped. i put it back together but i mightve stuck it in backwards....im too lazy to try my theory right now...but maybe ill try later. help!

arguing on the internet is like competing in the special olympics....even if you win..your still retarded.

RIP 03 ZX5

That's is really weird. I've lowered my car and haven't had this problem (yet) and I hope that I don't! I have to get on my soap box about the shitty idle though. I checked my spark plug gap and those were fine. I inspected the spark plug wires and those are fine, too. I haven't checked the ignition coil yet so I suspect it might be bad for now.

My car wants to stall and I notice something close to a misfire while cruising around 30-45 mph. I think that I will just park my car on the railroad tracks near my house to get rid of this problem!!!
