New valvoline fluid in both the front and rear diffs. Kind of a PITA to fill the rear diff with the Addco sway bar in the way but figured it out eventually.

Amazon had the best price. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00480N18G/..._M3T1_ST1_dp_1

Took some Googling as they're not called "HIR2" by name. Here's where I first found some info: http://store.candlepower.com/hirlighting.html

And here's how to modify the tabs so they'll fit in our 9006 housing: http://store.candlepower.com/mohirbuba.html

That is an excellent idea. I may need to steal that one in the future

Taking a quick trip to the junkyard today. I attempted to replace my clock spring this past Sunday and was completely unsuccessful. I ended up separating the wheel from the steel hub that's pressed into it, then cut the hub in half with a dremel.

I broke one 2 ton gear puller and only managed to completely destroy the back side of the wheel using another 2 ton puller. Hopefully I have better luck removing one in the junkyard after work.

Wanna grab me one whole you're there, too? I've needed a clockspring for a while. They're only $67 online, too. Man I'm lazy. Good luck swapping them out.

Sure, they're pretty cheap. The wheel itself is only like $6 since it's half off day.

I know what you mean about the clock spring, I was being a cheap *** and pulled one off a WJ in the boneyard to use in mine. That steering wheel came off without out any issue, so I figured it would take me twenty minutes or so to do mine at home.

I was dead wrong, almost 2 hours later all I had was a destroyed wheel. I'd use the wheel from the Jeep I got the clockspring, but it was a tan interior

Should have put some under the bumper, too, in the air dam, to protect the bottom of the condenser.

I replaced my clock spring , which did NOT fix my airbag issue, so I suspect it's still good. For $10 and shipping, I will send it to you, if you want to try it. I never had any problems with my steering wheel buttons, nor horn.

Went to the hardware store to get a few panels and posts to repair the garden fence after the worst storm for 26 years (aledgedly)! Jobs like this is why I wanted my lights and light bar down low! (note small helper....useful for passing tools, getting beer and passing tiedown straps to me before the wind blew the panels off the car!).

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
