Good DIY. So how do you burp the system? I know there's a way because I had to pay the Dealer to do it after jiffy lube messed it up and got air in the system.

When I had my lbj's replaced as a precaution, the mechanic said that the camber arm bushings were totally shot. Replacing the camber arms made the car handle like new again.

How rare are pushbutton shifters on the steering wheel? I know they were on the 99 gs400 and not offered after some point due to epa gas mileage issues.
