  1. I have a 2003 Monte Carlo SS, ... 3.8L w/ 55,000 miles on it, & has never seen a single snowflake, nor the accompanying "salt 'n cinders" here in Central New York. The Problem: The PASS side DRL (high beam's on this car) runs dimmer than the DRIV side. When I use high beams, they work flawlessly, ... &, yes, they are identical bulbs - Philips Diamond Vision 5000K 9005/HB3's. During the day, I chocked tires, & applied the parking brake, then put it in gear to activate the DRL's. I took the DRIV side bulb out, & used a DMM to measure voltage right at the fixture, & it read just shy of 6v ... appears they run at half-brightness as DRL's, ... then I unplugged the PASS side bulb, ... The DMM read just shy of 3v. I used another DMM to confirm the voltages. What a head-scratcher at that point. I asked some folks in a Monte Carlo Forum I am part of, & someone told me to check a particular relay under the hood. I found the relay with ease in the upper fuse box, & there happened to be an identical relay right above it - that one runs the fuel pump - so I swapped them out to see if the lights would work, & if the relay was bad, then the car would also not start because it would not activate the electronic fuel pump. I hit the key, & the car started. Ugh. ... & the DRL's were still messed up. I grabbed the relay that was running the fuel pump - the one the originally ran the DRL's - & I pulled it out, & the car quit running almost immediately. Relay problem? No, Sir. Anyone have any ideas? I am mechanically inclined, especially when I get Pop involved. Thanks for anything, folks.
  2. Ok so im planning on getting new Shocks this week. Or early next week. It's been to long. But i want to Level the front of the truck to where the back side is. I do a little offroading. Nothing crazy though. So i'd like to lift the front, Not lower the back. I found these.. and have been seeing alot about torsion keys.. About the Truck, 2000 Silverado EXT 2WD, 20's My tires dont rub but the last set i had did when i turned in the front. Would the first option on this link suffice? http://www.carid.com/2000-chevy-silverado-suspension-systems/readylift-lift-kit-3088078.html I'll be getting the shocks put on at Goodyear. There going to let me put it on a card so i can start building credit. Also got my last set of tires there which i paid my mom for thru them. The manager there who usually helps me said i could get a level kit to level it while they do the shocks also. Any help would be appreciated. More so by people who have the Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Tahoe, Surburbans.
