Here's a quick shot of my home made plugs.

Very nice on the plugs. I agree! It is very nice not to have a spoiler in the rear. The SXT isn't too bad though as opposed to the giant basket handle

Pretty productive couple of days. First, I installed a set of Prothane short end links:

Before:

After:

I noticed my left rear was almost a full inch lower than the right rear. The coilovers either settled unevenly, or they weren't set up well from the factory. Either way, I fixed it by raising one side half an inch and lowering the other side half an inch. Split the difference. Now the rear is level and the sway bar is stiffened and placed at a better angle.

Next, I finally recharged my K&N filter. It was filthy. I was dreading removing the front bumper to access the filter. It's just so tedious. Fortunately, once I removed the driver's side headlight, I realized I had complete access to the filter. So from now on, all I need to do is remove the headlight to clean the filter, which is so much less work than anticipated.
