    Used VX Commodore King Springs

    I've used plenty of used springs before, I think they're fine to use again. Only thing is they'll sag, so probably sit lower then they once did. Just make sure you're buying the right type of spring for your car... etc V8s have a stronger spring for the weight difference. You might get away...

    Ecotec in VR

    Hey, finished installing fitting everything.. I got a memcal to disable VATS it all runs, but i'm getting engine light on "Code 51 - Memcal Unit " I'm guessing it's because it's a different ECU and it's not detecting it's there properly?? Is there any way to trick it into thinking it's there...

    ABS strutts

    Sorry, Feeding you lies here. Didn't really look into it.. I'm use to VR+ strut, where it's separate from the HUB.. So if it's VN-VP it looks like a complete unit..

    Distance to empty Help

    Stop starting, driving around town will cause the average to go up. Once you hit the highway it'll probably go back up and probably show more K's to empty.. Distance to empty isn't accurate on most cars anyway.. gives you an idea.

    abs and airbag light staying on

    ABS can easily be sensors.. Airbag is normally common when people unplug seats/steering wheels without disabling the system first. also can be a faulty clock spring... Probably wont be able to fix the lights showing your self without a scan tool (tech2) or w/e..
