Re: A Teen at Work!

I don't think I ever made a post for these, but I am running OME HD coils in the rear to match my Bilstein 4600s with the RRO 2.25" spacers up front. I shot them with an undercoating first then top...

Over the years, my bumper covers on either sides have taken a decent beating. I have already trimmed my front on and I love the way it came out. Recently, my rear bumper cover has been getting worse....

Re: A Teen at Work!

I made a mistake, it's P2706 I believe. MS Solenoid error. I'm gonna go ahead and say I need to replace the Solenoid pack above the valve body.
