I just did the top end, I don't use anything in the oil. 5000-7500 mile intervals, and Mobil-1 since the factory have left nothing inside the crankcase of my LS I've seen engines run on dino oil that look worse than mine at 10K...and mine's got 95K!

Changed the completely wore out adjustable shocks with some stock quality Gabriel shocks. Now speed limited to 80mph, so either need a tech 2, or hit up a radio shack. Then I discovered that the drivers rear upper control arm mount had broken loose from the frame, so I welded that **** back on. Drives a whole lot better now.

Finally replaced my factory original, all cracked to hell, DRL/Marker light housings. Now I'm thinking I need some LED DRL bulbs, because the sockets were starting to look a little toasty.

Had every intention of getting the cover off and going for a cruise, however, a fine bottle of red wine, beautiful dappled sunshine and a adirondack chair under a pecan tree in my front yard derailed my intended automotive pursuits for the day. Well, there is always tomorrow, supposed to be just as nice, clear and in the 80's. I'll get her out then. Best wishes to all!

Had the wheels aligned. Was way off. Feels so much better now. Not hunting all over the road due to plus toe end. Our local front end shop did one heck of a job.

Finished detailing my 98 coupe using the DA polisher and Meguiar's car care products. Man she's looking good.

Pulled all 4 wheels, clean and dilectric grease on the ABS plug in's. One was loose fitting on the bracket so tighten that up.
Still getting a c1214h on the TCS system at times.
