    WOW, those look great. I replaced my DRL's last year. Its really amazing how much better the new lights look compared to the old one's. Mine were in decent shape, just got foggy when they got wet. Now the yellow light emitting from them almost looks like a fog light. LOL

    I started to replace my a/c compressor this week. Replaced chipped belt tensioner pulley on the blower bracket assembly. Finally re-installed the rear sway bar on the MOSER 12 bolt after the 12 bolt has been on the car for 10+ years! LOL. Peeled off the 12 year old tint from my windows. UGGGHHH. PITA getting all the old glue off the windows. Busy week.

    Got them on eBay. Read about a trick to installing them...have to drill out the screw holes a little bit or the screws will break.

    I'm assuming the trick is in the listing or where did you find it?

    I found the trick on another forum by accident actually...bunch of guys were complaining about screws snapping when they installed the new DRL's because they are made of a harder plastic than the stock ones and the factory screws have some pretty deep and aggressive threads so they would bite and snap off. I could tell immediately that if I didn't drill the holes some that the screws would probably break so I highly recommend doing it if you get a set.

    Item number for the ones I got is 370876961434.

    I under stand I wasn't sure what you were drilling. You are drilling the holes a little bigger to accept the screws better. Thanks

    Finally got the car up on jack stands and started on rear end swap. Got the wheels off and brakes and rotor off one side not vary far but at least it's a start after another busy day doing everything but what I wanted. I plan on cleaning and painting everything that needs it along the way so I will keep you posted along the way. Also ordered my S/S brake lines on Friday

    Well 2 days ago got the front end links put on and yesterday got the MSD spark plug wires on and NGK spark plugs put on. On side note pulling the coil pack off the pass side made it a lot easier getting to the spark plug, but still a PITA. Also recharged my a/c system, it was blowing pretty cold, but after a little while was not blowing as cold, so went ahead and recharged it to see what happens, seems to be blowing colder, but will find out when I take it on a road trip.

    ^^ In case you want to DIY, Harbor Freight sells a very reasonably priced set of AC gauges and has three (3) vacuum pumps available, also very reasonable. I have used my AC tools 3 times already since buying them and they have paid for themselves easily at this point in what I have saved in shop fees.

    Got some time in the garage tonight, the way I see it drive shaft, torq Arm, and shocks and the rear should be lowered and out.

    Sorry miss under stood you when you asked what I was doing thought you were referring to old one. Actually I have a Strange S60 with 4:10's along with drilled and slotted rotors and S/S braided brake lines going in. Haven't had much time to work as I'm trying to split up work around the house getting my trailblazer back in order, softball team I coach, and working everyday don't leave much left over. One good thing weather has absolutely sucked here so hasn't been to bad.
