Good news; new crush washers, no more leaking

VERY good news; while driving, brake pedal feels tighter than an 18 year old virg.... nvm.



Bad news; ABS light

VERY bad news; (and someone correct me if I'm wrong, but) it sounds like 2005's were the first year without the ABS diagnostic connector, so I NEED to bring it somewhere to get scanned? Car drives absolutely fine, just ABS and DCCD light. Is it safe to drive to the dealer?

I found this post, showing the ABS connector going into the harness directly where the green ECU connector goes in.

Than mine- absolutely NO WHERE the ABS connector can be, I looked for hours

Any thoughts on the ABS light? I pretty much NEED to bring it somewhere to get scanned?

Got home from SC friday night.
Saturday morning, got an "alignment", and they also scanned the ABS code.

3 ABS codes. 27 Left rear ABS speed sensor, 42 power supply error, and 48 communication error. I'm assuming all 3 are related to the speed sensor, so I got a new one on the way

Alignment; threw it up on the rack, and without any adjustments to anything what-so-ever, is pretty damn good. Even on the impact side Right rear, with a new hub and trailing arm was MUCH better than I was anticipating.


Camber;
Front: -1.38L, -1.4R
Rear: -2.09L, -2.02R
Remember my ass end is lower cuz I got the H&R's in the rear for now, AST's still on the fronts.

Toe;
Front: -.43L, -.52R
Rear: -.06L, -.45R
Is this an excessive amount of toe?
STS' specs are between 0 +/ .12 each wheel, which mine are like 3.5times that.
But the manual's specs are either 0 +/- .25, or +/- .167, still can't figure out which one, but both of which are better than STS'.
