Thanks! yeah, I'm pretty satisfied. The swap wasn't all that bad really. I did swap out the ABS pump/proportioning valve for 4 wheel disc. I bought a used unit, swapped it in and it works great! No programming needed!

I'm surprised they didn't just tell you to buy a ss/sc, or ss/tc.

Yeah. I do prefer this site because people seem more friendly to us Sub-SS owners. There are better classifieds over there though.
