The rack will only throw it off if you don't line it back up

Or if it was uncentered from the factory... What I gotta do to get that tool?! Blood of my first born? Done!

Got home, mailed my leaking strut to Koni. Then went downstairs and played with my new rotary tool by sanding down the burrs on my OEM strut housing.

I ripped the horrible, horrible, tint the previous owner put on the tail lights off and cleaned off the glue and polished them.

Tomorrow, head lights! They're yellowing :|

Tightened up the steering rack bolts (since I'm getting a weird knocking noise on right turns...) and washed the aluminum undertray and the rest of the exterior of the car.



And I also Photoshopped in a drop

My steering wheel is ever so slightly off center. Didn't disconnect the linkage or anything either.

Unfortunately no Researched the hell out of those headlights I got from you and found out they are simply xenon.. one is HID and the other is halogen. The stacking design of the SRX headlights allowed Cadillac to avoid using a bixenon setup.. I guess to save money? They do use Valeo lenses though, which are nice!

I ended up selling a bunch of parts so fund a Morimoto version 5 bixenon retrofit setup, with Kensun bulbs/ballasts and a TRS relay. I tried to piece to together on Amazon/eBay to save some dough instead of just go through TRS.. I think I saved about $20

Yep and now my rear end is slammed. Had to take the mud flaps off because they were dragging and my exhaust is less than an inch off the ground. Hopefully I can limp to mach v or my house. The konis have a warranty so hopefully they make it easy to get replacements.

How long have you had the Konis? I wanted to go this route but a lot of people seem to be having problems recently.
