Don't know if the beer + Heat indexz is a good idea....but whatever...I'd do it the same way.

Good luck and let us know how it goes, or comback with any questions you may have.

Pat..how can you say that.. the CCR system reliably works until it reliably fails.

yes true but some have failed at 50K and some have made it to 125K.

it goes without saying 98% of the equipped cars have a problem with there CCR, there are only 5-6 that actually have working CCR out of the almost 5000 member club...not good odds if you say me

Mine also works..as does Andrews (1995)

I'm pretty sure there'* more than 5-6.. but let'* get back on topic.

Yes..swap the ELC, it'* a great item to have and leave off the CCR.

Let'* put it this way:

Both of my cars have FE2 suspension.
Both of my cars have Energy Suspension Poly endlinks.
Both of my cars have ELC.

My 95 has CCR.
My 93 has a Gabriel/Monroe setup front and rear.

My 93 KILLS my 95 with CCR in handling. Can I feel the difference between CCR modes? Sure. But Performance ride doesn't even begin to compare to premium struts/shocks.

Well yesterday, I disassembled the ELC on my extra car. I have it all off, but halfway through I decided to do this my own way (not the same as they do at the factory). The search is now on for some Monroe Reflex ELC Struts for the rear. I was at the Advance auto last night picking up a clutch for another job, and they told me they no longer existed, but when I ask them a question they are dead wrong 90% of the time. Here are some pictures of what I took off.

This is the sensor connected to the A-Arm.

This is the sensor itself.

The crusty compressor.
