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'.

Replaced the LR wheel speed sensor




And since my tie rods were rusted frozen and they couldn't adjust anything....

Installed new inner tie rods, and a Whiteline Roll center kit.



Not sure if it's because I did the ball joints like 40K ago, or if it was the air chisel/hammer, but as soon as the air hammer barely wedged into the split of the hub, the BJ's almost dropped out.


All good things

SURPRISE!!!! Fender flaress!!!









They surprisingly fit alotttt better than I was anticipating thankfully. I've only mocked up the fronts so far, but I don't think I'll need to trim them at ALL. Yet.
Last things I gotta buy are the nut-serts, hardware, and gun to install the nut-serts.



Already got the Bushwacker fender trim, and my first decision is how to mount it;


Like it was intended to be installed:
Pro's: flows better and looks smoother, and the double-sided tape has more surface area to stick to the flare
Con: it's more visible



Or flipped around.
Doesn't flow as smoothly, but is less visible.



I'll probably go with the 1st option, I don't think it'll be too visible when more than 5ft away.

Interested to see how the flares turn out. What wheel/tire specs?
