Great DIY! I'm very thankful for this site and all the info.

Yes it was a PITA. My clamps were all in difficult positions. I had the infamous whistling sound and when I got in there i found this was why:

I put in the upper and lower boots and the next morning my SES light went away and I was very satisfied. Even had more low end power.

But the next day, the SES light came back on. Looks like the positioning is off and the upper tube is bent a little. Hmm. Hope some repositioning will fix it.
