You're sure it's not the tranny downshifting? You've got the 4th solenoid bypassed, right? That's where the common thump is. It could be coincidental, but you'll usually be on the brakes when...

People usually use "head unit" and "stereo" interchangeably.

I doubt your run-of-the-mill stereo shop can fix the tuner. You'd probably need to find an electronics specialist for that, and I...

That seemingly rules out the CD changer and amp, so the head unit is likely the problem. More specifically, the tuner, not the preamp, as the latter would affect the CD changer, too.

I don't see how disintegrated speakers would explain it sounding good when initially powered up.

This is one big reason why I despise integrated, proprietary audio systems, be it car or home. If something goes wrong, it's so much more difficult to troubleshoot and expensive to replace. Totally...

We quickly surpassed my knowledge on the topic. :) I would guess there's either power or ground going to both bulbs in series, with the other applied by the switch's state. I probably have notes...

Yeah, I took mine apart enough to see that I would have to modify the traces to go any further, so I stopped there. I sort of recall the bulbs being wired in series, so you would want to keep those...

You're probably right, but technically speaking, that doesn't rule out the possibility that it wasn't plugged in fully and you simply improved the connection by plugging in the new one. That's sort...

It would be easier to just remove the hood blanket (or get new clips) if it's sagging that bad. It kinda sorta has some noise suppression and fire retarding qualities, but not much consensus on...

I was stumped at first, too. Someone finally pointed out the right way to do it with no extra disassembly. When you rotate the hub, you'll find a spot where you can push the stud out the back side...

Now that I can see the pictures, I'm luke warm at best about the body kit. How much trouble would it be to go back to stock? You could sell the body kit for $1 and come out ahead. ;)

Your old pictures in the first post are dead, but if I were closer and didn't already have my SC, that price would be enticing for such low mileage. I would hope someone bites. I'd love to lop half...

Someone else will have to weigh in on how the parcel shelf brake light hooks up, as I've never seen that setup in person.

I'd be very surprised if a non-functioning center brake light would pass inspection, but if not all of the LEDs are out, maybe you'd sneak by?

Am I reading that right that the '97-00 radiator costs more but the '92-96 one is basically twice as good, and they're interchangeable? If so, you deserve a gold star. :)
