I'm confused. Why did you top off the brake fluid?

Finally fixed the outer CV boot and mounted my painted BBS wheels (black). Next purchase is the V-Limited front lip from MachV.

low brake fluid is an indicator of worn friction material. Or if its real low, a leak. I never top off my brake fluid as the level shows me how they are wearing. Chances are you may need to replace your pads if the brake fluid was that low...

Yuuuuuup

My fronts are a bit low, but the last time I messed with the brakes I had to remove a caliper because of a seized bolt. I probably didn't add enough.

Soooo problem solved ;-)

First you should never add brake fluid, unless you have a leak that you just fixed. Then you also need to bled the system to get the air out. You need to go back and read brakes 101 o not.
I really hope you didn't add to much fluid. When you go to do your front pads, you are going to most likely make a mess when you compress the pistons on the front calipers.
To each their own.

As I said, I had to remove a caliper a wile back and most likely didn't add enough fluid.

I know how to do brakes, I've been working on cars since I could stand.

Thanks for all the info though

As far as what I did with my car today, I stared at it coming out of Walmart.

I think the next day I have free is the 23rd, although, I don't believe removing my down pipe is an option. : /

I do have an exhaust manifold, trans mount and crossmember bushings that need to go on too.

Forgot I loaned out my Tatrix cable though, so I won't be able to turn off codes.

Heh, well I haven't been under my car since the rotated setup went on, so it could be easier, or much harder. I'll have to crawl under it one of these days to give it a look.

Just did the parking brake bypass for my Pioneer HU. Will be running the satellite radio antenna and mounting that unit later.

Installed intake, radiator plates, belt cover, turbo back exhaust, uppipe, heat shields, bypass valve, pitch stops in 2... yes 2 vehicles. Sold my acces port for the WRX, and had a prospective buyer come by the house and take the WRX for a test driver after it was returned to stock. I am ****ing spent and so sun burnt it hurts to flinch.

That's about the strangest bit of advice I've ever read. So I should just live with the "BRAKE" light rather than filling the fluid to the proper level? On both of the cars I own that actually have fluid level sensors in the MC reservoir, the light is triggered well before the pads are worn out. And it's not like removing the fluid when you change the pads is some sort of crippling inconvenience. A couple seconds with a turkey baster (which you already have in your tool kit, unless you never flush your brake fluid) and you're done.

Fought the rear end stuff yesterday. (Rear diff, lateral links, trailing arms, hubs) It took waaaaaay too long to get just two bolts out. I was able to put the r180 diff and driveshaft in before I needed to get ready for work. I knew this whole swap was going too smoothly for nothing to happen.

Almost done with this crazy swap. It also sucks having to do most of the work by myself. I get a friend to help for a couple hours here and there.

I fired her up again to find any leaks, saw there is a few small exhaust leaks (header flanges and header to uppipe.) One small coolant leak at the back of the motor as well, just a bad clamp I presume.

I got my base tune from Phatron this weekend as well, that will be flashed once I can drive and do the logs.
