    Don't forget the reason you have the auto-leveling, the HID's.

    Without the auto-level your headlights may end up to high or low.

I bought a couple of spade type automotive light sockets with the two wires for connecting to a circuit. I plugged a 10 watt automotive bulb into each socket and pushed the two wires into the computor connector which had been previously connected to the MRC shocks. (You have to remove the adapter to expose the female connections) Wrap some electrical tape around the connection to keep it place and viola 'No Warning Flags'. Both light sockets c/w bulbs cost about $10 bucks. Took about five minutes to do both sides. I also read somewhere that a 3 ohm resistor works as well. Don't know for sure. Been driving for a couple of months and so far so good.


    One last piece of info. The bulbs did not light up so you don't have to worry about starting a fire under ythe hood, however, they do provide enough variable resistance to do the job.
