The looser the waistband, the deeper the quicksand. Or so I have read.

Feather-light suspension, Konis just couldn't hold. I'm so glad I took a look inside your showroom doors.

Hey everybody, it's good to have you on the Baba-too-da-ba-too-ba-ba-buh-doo-ga-ga-bop-a-dop

Car is basically all back together and done. Gotta get to the DMV this week

I pulled the codes yesterday. The one setting off the stability warning was an open circuit for the abs pump. Added an additional ground wire to the existing one and problem solved. 2 other codes are present that pertain to the RSS system but they do not limit top speed to 90mph or throw warning lights and I can live with them. I think they may have even corrected themselves once I got the car back on level ground(was jacked up 2 feet in front)

A little update on the car...
Its been stripped for parts, lol.
Turns out the gas tank started leaking and suspension needed work. Wasn't going to be worth putting any more money into it. I sold the motor first with all the work done, and now I'm slowly getting rid of random parts on ebay and craigslist. All said and done, I figure I should make a few hundred over what I have into the car.

The day I discovered the extent of the gas leak, I also found out about another car which was too good of a deal to pass up. So now my daily driver is a 6 speed '04 GTO.
