Replaced battery with Oreillys Super Start Extreme (765 CCA). Old battery was still cranking but barely getting the job done. Lots of winter left.

Also replaced the 4 year old hood gas strut which wasnt getting the job done either. That was a warranty freebe also from Oreillys.

Got the modified OME installed today. Installed rustys rear coil spacer after removing stock isolator to gain approximately 1.25 inches. Stacked two rustys 1/4 spacers on new upper strut mounts that have 1/4 longer thread than stock for about 1 inch lift up front. Installed adjustable track bar and bwoody 1 inch extended sway bar end links. Sitting about 4 inches above stock front and rear.

At the alignment shop now getting everything including the track bar dialed in!

Would post pics but can't seen to get my photobucket to log me in. I know if there aren't pics it didn't happen!

I think the air dam effects it a lot. I took off my dam for all the snow around upstate NY and I lost about 1.5 to 2 mpg's.

Mines getting traded/sold ASAP just as soon as I get it back from the shop. Who knows, may just trade it to 'em as is. They've had it a week and haven't figured out what's wrong with it. Put 45k+ flawless miles on it (now has 98,500), and it's been all downhill since September. And mines been far from abused.
