Is the lamp burning out? Perhaps you are touching the bulb with fingers when installing? Is the connector on tight? If not, time to start checking the HB circuit - you may have a direct short of some sort that is drawing large amounts of power through the bulb. >Secondly, my ABS light came on and now is staying on constantly...i >haven't had a chance to remove my wheels to see if the sensor light >has been jarred as of yet...

The rear shocks are just "shocks". The noise is likely your front strut mounts and/or bearings. Replace them. Do the struts if you are in there. Your control arms could be bad but it's less likely. The ball joint does sometimes wear and replacing the arm is the only way to repair. But, it's less common of a problem at 101K. If you can afford it, buy 4 adjustable Koni's. You won't regret it. >lastly i am going to replace my plugs and wires....cars seems to want >to stall when i am coming to a stop sign...but fires right up...i am >sure it needs a tune up..so i'll start with the wires and plugs....a >little slow on power i am noticing....i am not getting the punch in >third gear when i am reeling in all the "ricers" on 95 north!!!! any >suggestions on the brand of plugs and wires! You don't have wires, you have a direct ignition cassette. Replace your plugs every 10K with the STOCK plugs. Change the air filter. Run a bottle of Techron Fuel System Cleaner (accept no substitutes!) through. Clean the IAC. You need to know about this site: http://pages.infinit.net/mlbriand/index.shtml
