#730 of 779 Too much lumbar support
Jun 27, 2005 (8:25 pm)
I just got my 2005 Impala and I'm very happy with it but the lumbar support annoys me. I feel it pressing into my lower back even at the lowest setting. Can I somehow remove it or reduce it even more?

#734 of 779 Installing RDS Radio / Upgrading RDS Radio
Jul 17, 2005 (7:21 am)
FYI - I've figured out how to bypass the CLASS 2 Communications for all RDS Radios to enable them to work without locking. This applies to all Class 2 RDS Radios from 2000 - 2005. To put it simply, just hook up the CLASS 2 from the Radio directly to a Ground. I have been toying with this for a while trying to figure out how to get around CLASS 2 issues. I upgraded my chevrolet non-CLASS 2 radio in my 99 Blazer to RDS 6 CD Changer. I studied how the CLASSS 2 system and how it works. Current RDS radios do not look for a return signal, but instead look for a possible path to communicate with the BCM. I only noticed this when turned the ignition to ACC position and it would not lock the radio, however I knew there is no way the BCM is communication at this point.
#735 of 779 2003 Impala 9C1 Eibach spring fiasco...
Jul 27, 2005 (7:10 pm)
Greetings all. This is my first post to the forum. Lots of great information here so far, here's my current situation, perhaps someone can help me out:
About a year ago I got a nice 2003 Impala (9C1) police package with 41k miles. The car was in near new condition, and never used in police duty. It's a great car, though honestly it draws too much attention, but that's a different story all together... I've put over 20k miles on it since I got it, and have had no problems at all. I didn't like the stance though, it just sat too high, with way too much of a gap at the wheel wells... So, I decided to buy Eibach Pro-Kit springs, and put them on the car... I've had good luck with previous vehicles and Eibach springs, so I thought, no problem...
After having the springs installed, I noticed a definite vibration upon acceleration (in the gas pedal and steering wheel mostly)... I figured this would be cleared up after the alignment, so I didn't worry about it. After the alignment I got the car back and though the vibration has decreased, it is still too evident for my liking. Maybe a fluke with my tire balance, I thought, so I got all four tires balanced at the best place in town... Nope, still vibrating. Like I said, I notice it mostly in the steering wheel and gas pedal, and the harder I accelerate, the more evident the vibration is. I'm at my wits end... I've taken it to a couple mechanics, had them check it over, test drive it, etc. and nothing. I had the alignment checked again thinking perhaps that was the fault... Well, supposedly it needed an alignment, so I had it done, it changed the vibration a bit, and how it manifests itself, but it's still there...
Now, don't get me wrong, the Eibach springs really have made cornering in this car a dream, much better than the stock police package... (Also, the struts were in great shape, so I didn't replace those when I did the springs, though I don't think the struts would cause such a vibration anyway), but I just really, really want to get rid of this vibration...
Does anyone have any thoughts as to what this could be? I'm not sure what to do next. The car has been great to me, and certainly has it's charms, but now I'm regretting getting the springs done, because it's made my total driving experience so much worse!
Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks in advance!
