OK..so, upswing...lol, damn skippy

Well, I got the car back. The rad and trans cooler lines are done. But the female connector for the ELC is on back order until next week....now it gets interesting. I got home from the dealer, changed to come to work....my sister walks out to my car and runs back inside.

Jim...your car is making a funny noise!! So, I walk out side....brrrrrzzzzrrrrrzzzrr WTF????

For some strange reason my air compressor activated and it was filling my new rear air shocks with...well, air, the back is jacked up nice now. Droppd at the front, raised a bit at the back, and nice new white shocks partially visible...tres cool

And a big shout to my dealer, they helped me out a lot, got the work done quickly, gave me a parts discont, labour discount, and got me a brand new GM rad for the same cost as a refurbished unit.

Let the good times roll....now I gotta lick my wounds and pay for it all

89BonnieSE89, Glad to hear you got your car back. You have one think that I didn/t have on my Aurora, the Autoban package. The auto level feature must be nice.

The ELC is going all screwy on me now. The way it looks, the car is assuming that there is a heavy load on the car and its raised....quite a bit. I'm quite perplexed at this point..oh and quite broke too...hahaha

Meh...this is life
