    I have a 2003 Protege ES 5 speed. About 6 months ago I got a CEL for a random cylinder misfire. I replaced the coils, packs, and plugs and the problem went away.

    Spacers question

    I have a stock '03 Protege ES with the stock 16" rims. I would like to get some spacers to push the wheels out a little and make them flush with the fender. What sizes, front and back, would I need to do this without pushing the wheels out too far and be at risk of snapping my studs?

    Rota Slipstream fitment?

    Once I get the money I will be picking up a set of Rota Slipstream's. I have a stock Protege ES, but I will be lowering it some time in the future.

    Weird ABS issue

    Two weeks when I was parking my car on the side of the street, I drover up on the slanted curb and when I hit my brakes ABS kicked in. At first I thought that there could have been a patch of ice on the curb. I wasn't going fast and I definitely wasn't slipping or anything. It did it to me again...

    Front end link squeak

    I got my front sway bar installed and used the Ford Escape end links from autozone. Before I switched out the bar and end links my front end squeaked real bad.
