    First parts changed out in my ws6(not really mods)

    Just finished doing the first changing of parts on my WS6.

    Changed the 2 front signal bulbs as the idiot that had the car before me had 2 DIFFERENT colored ones in the sockets, one was orangish and the other was whiteish.

    Changed all 4 brake pads to hawk ceramics as my previous ones started squealing and were causing steering wheel movement during braking.

    Also installed a skip shift eliminator.

    Car runs a lot better now, looks sexier, and is funner to drive without the cags!!

    Was going to paint my calipers also, but ran out of time.
    Bought the paint though, engine enamel ford blue

    I bet your rotors are warped, thats probably what was causing the steering wheel to move while braking. The stock rotors are very notorious for warping on fbodies. Your pads would have been the cause of the squealing though, so changing them was worthwhile as well.

    Changing just the pads seems to have fixed my steering problem also, the rotors didn't seem too bad. Will probably need changing during my next brake installation though.

    Not questioning anything really, but water/water vapor can cause a running light to change from orange to white. Mine on the driver's side has done it twice since I've had it (99). Just a thought, incase you like the guy you bought it from and don't want a negative opinion.

    I bought it form a dealer so I don't even know the guy, and they looked like 2 different bulbs, the glass casing was a different color and the manufacturer was different also.

    Cool. Might just be different then. Maybe he didn't know the right #. No excuse for that!
