well........actually it feels better. I honestly think that I had made myself think that it was riding terrible before, but after riding stock for a week, it's really about the same....

Oh yeah and I put some RR red strap grab handles on the other day...I'm going to order a set for the rear too. They look good.

My alignment isn't off, but my steering wheel is just barely off center, and it's bugging the HELL out of me (it's the little things that bug me. ). How do you center the steering wheel? Or is that something I should leave to the pros?

Oh, got my Monroe steering stabilizer in on Tuesday.. looks like I won't get a chance to put it on until mid January (going out of town then working for a week).

And today I sprayed all the road salt and Ice off with some warm water at the car wash. I don't want anything to corrode and stuff, and I also wanted to see if the slight pulling to the left, squeaky rear-left brake and shimmy was attributed to the ice and salt buildup. Turns out it was... say buh bye to an alignment!

There's a turnbuckle in you steering linkage that can be loosened, turned to center the wheel, then tightened again. Looks pretty simple, but I don't know linkage very well.
Look around the forum. I've read wiser men than me walk people through it

Cannot wait till January to put everything on.

Yep, it's so easy my 7 year old could do it. I did mine this week. It took me all of 3 minutes and a 15 mm wrench. There is a write up here if you search for it....

Picked it up from the dealer yesterday. Was having the wipers fixed. They weren't working right in Intermitent mode. Dealer changed the stalk lever but the first time I tried them with the Service Mgr standing there, they didn't work. They're replacing the motor today. Service Mgr was pretty po'd at the tech.

If memory serves me right, that is the EVAP canister.
