    Got some pics of the LED puddle light upgrades. For some reason, the passenger side has the Festoon bulb holder, which I put a 6 LED in, and the driver side has a 195 socket in the side, so I put a 5 LED flat plug that I had on hand. Why would it be this way?? I'm going to make a junkyard run and get another festoon housing. Here are the pics for comparison.

    Did an oil and filter change, Installed the Monroe 90012 Electro to Passive shock kit, installed a new dorman air compressor for self leveling shocks.

    Now I am trying to find a way to keep the self leveling rear shocks, but delete the RTD without cutting up my wiring harness to install the resistors. The coolant temp sensor uses the same series Metri-Pack connector, but with the tab index 180 off. Canibalizing some cheap CTS for the rear, but a lil lost on the front. Thinking I will cut the stud off the old front shocks, find a way to run a wire securely to the center conductor and nut a ring terminal to the shaft.... then I can install the resistors to all that stuff while leaving my wire harness alone.

    Just cut the thing. You can keep em and solder em back on i guess if you want to later.

    You are making it unnecessarily difficult on yourself imho.

    I dont get the point of that kit... The front shocks are just normal el cheapo $20 monroe shocks and they come with $5 worth of resistors.

    Atleast it is dirt cheap i guess.

    New black leather installed today... more pics to come

    Also got the headliner finished and put in. Front overhead console had to be repainted... so it’s missing from the pic.

    Yeah, I am realizing now that they are crap shocks! Still feel like I am driving on jello. Wondering what I should get. I still want the auto level in the rear.

    Thanks brother. Been a work in progress for many months now. I think I promised y’all some new interior a couple months back but with job promotions, movin, and of course family time things have been quite hectic.
