    Can you give me some more information about the drill mod? sounds a bit complicated
    IIRC, it's called the "Whistler" mod because that was the log on name of the guy who 1st did it on LS1Tech...

    you drop your rear axle, remove your coil springs and the rubber insulators on top of them that isolate suspension noise from the body. they are just thick rubber circles. take your coil spring to vatozone or local parts store and get some heater hose that slips over your top coil. get enough to do both springs. spray the inside of the hose with some lube and slide that hose around your spring. reinstall everything and wolla! lowered just a lil bit but its noticeable

    I took my tb apart and ground it down with a file. Alot of guys really butcher this mod up, so take your time and make it looks nice.

    Looks like a direct copy of Install university. I even see their pictures in several of the writeups. That's not very nice.

    How do you do the headlight mod? I think my car has it because i have to turn them on manually but I would really like for them to turn on auto.

    Pretty sure there is a resistor you change out under the dash where the sensor is. Can't seem to locate the thread for it.

    The sensor is on the top of the dash..under where the center vents are I believe. Where the alarm light would normally be.
