Replaced the ATF fluid for power steering using the "Turkey Baster" method. I was surprised that the power steering reservoir was well below the fill line to begin with. After replacing it, the steering does feel a bit tighter

Did yours have a burnt smell to it? Just curious, as mine smelled very crispy.

Where can I get more info on this? There're parameters that I wanna activate in my ZHP, too. That one sounds pretty awesome.

So Im on stock sport suspension still...

Go to friends house. They have a gate. in the middle of their driveway there is this small metal thing that the gate locks on. Usually I can go rite over it, but I just go slow anyway.

So a few nights ago I pull up and make it over fine. Go to door, pick up two chicas, and go to exit the property. I hear this metal thing scrape 3 times on the bottom of my car

Wont go there again. This is one of the many reasons why Im hesitant to go low.
