    Replaced the rear shocks with a used set out of a 2001 STS with 78K miles. 100 day warranty, $50 each! Pretty good deal, I think.
    How much difference do you see?

    It's considerable - the old ones were factory original and at 156K miles completely worn out, with leaking air boots (sagging rear end) and no shock absorption.

    The new ones, with 1/2 the miles and good air boots, get my car to where it was when I bought it 4 years ago - with shocks that still have some life left in them. I had replaced the fronts with the Monroe aftermarket equivalent ones at about 110K miles, so 45K on the fronts and now 78K on the rears.

    When the time comes that these are worn out, the car will have over 200K miles, and I'll have to decide what to do then. I doubt there would be any good used shocks for my car available in a salvage yard by 2014.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    last night i test fit the subwoofer box im building to make sure it will fit where its going, it fit perfectly:


    the box isnt done yet of course.


    started to finish the speaker box. i went to walmart to buy a jigsaw silicone sealant and a compass, for drawing circles. They had everything but the compass. Bought a 50 cent ruler and improvised:


    unfortunately i miscalculated the radius by an inch so the speaker wouldnt fit. fabricated a back up plan similar to the original and finally got the right radius in and got one hole cut then stopped for the night.

    Also, popped the top off in preparation for our trip down to florida. noticed the pulldown motor was acting up again cycling at the wrong times. Removed the ground to it today and fixed that!

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    got a set of repro front bumper fillers in the mail today from 1980 coupe. makes me wonder why caddy didn't make them out of ABS from the get go- its alot more durable than the poly propylene or whatever they made the factory originals out of. and they don't decompose when you wash the car.
    also got a wood grained piece for the left rear door from dr. menard to replace my original one that wont stay in place (2 broken screw mounts.)

    Sting, 3 8 inch rockford fosgate P2s powered by an audiobshn a8000t which should send about 210 watts to each. Not a monster of a system but its going right behind the seats. Akso, i looked at specs of other "banging" systems ive had before and this one outspecs em. Back then i just saw 1000 watts max and thought i was doing big things, not know each 10 was really only getting 120 real watts. Im eager to see whay this will sound like since it will be my most powerful system yet and the first box ive built.

    Today im in west palm beach florida, tomorrow i will visit the legendary dick hussey at allante source for a pair of pearl white doors

    Haha naw. You can bearly tell in the pic cause the light hits them just right.

    Some ass repainted the doors. Since theyre pearl white it would have been hard to match the color anyway so thats issue 1. The person who painted apparently didnt bother to go one level finer on his sanding, so you can see the sandmarks on the doors. Its REALLY ugly once you know its there
