    What do you mean? The rocker panels are clean. Does something look wrong?

    left rocker about 2-3 inches back from the front edge of the door looks smashed like it hit a curb or something.

    Which picture are you looking at?

    Wait, Are you talking about the silver exterior trim of the car on drivers side? I have no idea what happened to that. The car has been in the family since I was 10 (almost 20 years ago), and so my mom probably messed that up somehow... quite a mystery to me.

    LOL .... somebody noticed.

    That relay is the ELC relay to stop the stupid compressor from trying to pump up the shocks when they aren't the pump-able shocks (so they're just not connected to anything). I was so tired of that stupid loud compressor. lol

    My Avalanche is doing the same thing. Shocks leak and the stupid pump runs all the time. It gives up after a while, but it's still annoying. I'll have to find the relay and put it in my ashtray :-P

    LOL I'm starting a trend! Take a picture if you do.

    But hey, I don't use the ashtray, and I'll never lose the relay that way. :P

    Mostly. It runs well under 30mph and on straight-a-ways only.

    So did my 307...at least until it started having a smoke screen roll out from under the bumper on its last drive to the mechanics.

    Funny thing was I didn't know it was doing it. I got to the mechanics and commented to my dad how it was weird that I was doing 10 under the speed limit (because the 307 couldn't go over 25 or 30 without giving it over 50% throttle once warmed up and I didn't want to push it and risk it blowing up) and pulling away from everyone. My dad (who was following me in the van) said "didn't you notice the smoke?" I asked "what smoke?" And he said "there was a thick smoke screen rolling out from under the bumper. It looked like the car was on fire and it kept getting worse. I think that engine finally died." (I didn't notice any smoke, but I was worried about it making it to the mechanics....and it barely made it. It was making quite a racket the last couple blocks and it reeked of oil heavily, but it drove onto the lot.)

    Finally took the time to yank the fuse. Naturally it's upset about it - SERVICE SUSPENSION but no ill-effects. It was driving me nuts - ran every couple of minutes.

    I call it the nebulosity mod.
