Well I would like to put some fresh fluid and ideally install some stainless lines. Also needed is an oil change and tranny/diff fluid change.

Im sure I can do it all myself but I do not have a driveway and things get messy when your working on the street.

I def want the right fluid for the tranny and diff, so I am thinking maybe I should just go see a dealership. I can do the oil myself but figured I might as well have it done in one shot.

The brakes would be nice with some performace fluid and lines, but its not totally necessary.

Any suggestions where to get it done? Anyone want to help? IDK..

Youd be surprised how many people are oblivious to mods. Plus I dont do dealerships, except I need things done ASAP since I have a track day coming up and I am just hitting 30k and havent done the brake fliuid or tranny/diff fluid ever.

If they give me trouble then they wont get the business, if its gets down chances are I will never be back anyways.

Where did you make an appointment? I go to Morristown suby and so do some other guys I know. For the future I know one of the mechanics there that does some side work for me too. Let me know if you need work done.

I setup an appointment at the stealership.

First time my car will see a dealership. Oh well..
I would ask them for a list of exactly what they will do and what fluids they will use. When I called my dealership to buy the rear diff oil, the parts guy told me that they had NEVER had it in stock. Which obviously means that they are just putting some regular oil in the rear diff - not good. Check the drivetrain forum for more details on the rear diff fluid etc.

I'd get a quote up front too - you may be surprised by what they quote you.

Oh, forgot to update this.

I called precision tuning this morning and they said they were too busy to fit me in since it takes a few hours.

They has the SS lines in stock which I wanted anyways. Redline oil for the diff/tranny, and royal purple for the motor oil. They are going to do the coolant as well. They said it could take 3-4 hours easy so I am wondering if anyone wants to come down and hang out with me on wednesday.

I will be there at 1pm.
