      Ah.. I always thought it way the felt part that I can see that way sticking but the internal track makes more sence. Thanks

      One of my Philips XtremePower bulbs died, so I replaced it with one of the old ones I had from when I swapped headlights. Unsure if I'll try the newer Philips XtremeVision, or just snag another set of XtremePower off eBay for $12.60 or $16.91...

      Yesterday I had the tires rotated and balanced and found out it needs a full brake job all around...calipers, pads, rotors. 191K miles on the clock.

      I had this completed earlier this week and while the shop had it, I also had them fix the vent mode issue. While they did a bit of a "rig" job rather than the more expensive appropriate fix, it gets the job done for a fraction of the price and I have good, full air blowing out whichever vents I set it to again.

      Noticed my rear driver tire looked low. It was ten pounds low at most. While inflating it back up, I noticed a nice rusty nail a couple inches up the sidewall from the tread. Not repairable.

      I never had my $23.99 Fusion SUV tire mounted for my spare, so I had that done, and put it on.

      Now gotta figure out if I want to buy a single Kumho AT51...
      or a new set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3 for $409.96 minus $145 in rebates...
      or get another new set of Firestone Destination LE2 for $451.53 (mounted & balanced) minus $60 in rebates...
      or get a set of Michelin Defender LTX M/S for $532 minus $100 in rebates...
      or...

      Installed a set of 2" blocks on the front coil springs. Now she sits nice and level.

      Did have to grind a little to get the blocks to seat into the springs. Pretty easy job. Didn't even need the bolt extenders.

      Installed a fresh Driveshaft, new spicer U-Joints and balanced, into the Eddie Bauer. Still had the vibration. rotated it 90* then 180*, then 270*. As I was testing it again for vibration the third time the light finally went on.... it might be the front driveshaft.
      I pulled the front driveshaft just to test for vibration. As I'm pulling it one of the caps came off spilling little roller bearings everywhere. So, vibration or not, its gonna need a new U-joint. I hit I-10 and took it up to 80. It was almost as smooth as the wifes Mercedes. If I hadn't had All terrain tires it probably would have been! Houston...We've found the problem. I took the driveshaft to Arizona Driveshaft (yes, thats a plug). They should have it done today and I'll be vibration free!
      If ya live in the Phoenix area, and need driveline work done... Check them out. They've been very courteous, very helpful, and they do great work.
