Re: [DML] Torsion Bar "Relief"...........

I do that and so did the previous owner. He recommended it because it 
should increase the life of the struts too. After 2 years of doing this, no 
problems so far. However, I do keep the car in a garage and there are no 
bugs and small animals around here that can use the D as their home.

As for the door lights, I have an impulse sequencing relay installed on 
that circuit. This basically allows me to turn the lights on and off with 
my keyless entry remote. Never cared for the master battery disconnect method.

VIN 4099
