Front end alignment and use of spring compressor + new strut mounts= $100

Cost for shop to do it=$260

Strut mounts were still good, no need for any of it=priceless

So I saved $160, and it ended up being those indented pieces that were the problem.

Now I know more about the car, which was nice.

Fuel filter is next, dipping the roof.

Thanks. I need a couple hours. Don't want to rush it.

Yeah that's the biggest thing you will see. Plus it's important to see out off. 20% will be nice with headlights at night.

You could edit your post to something relevant to prevent that from happening.

No big update.

-In the process of dipping my roof black, pictures to come up when it is complete...its bad right now...
-Rain deflectors came in yesterday, yes they are in-channel AVS dark smoke.
-Waiting on an email for fixing my 2 bent SVT rims.
-Red electrical tape to go over the blue part on the SRI.
-Still waiting on Euro Headlights to get here, Euro grill is sitting in my room waiting as well...
-Still thinking about yellow HID's for my fogs.
-Fuel filter done sooner than later, its rolling around in my trunk.

Christmas break is going to include installing Cruise Control to Betsy. We will see how that goes. Still have to research that.

I like to be different. Yellow is different, until you get to a focus meet, then its all YELLOW.
