So I was changing my my oil the other day and had my car on the lift since it is sooo easy to change it when its in the air. I was waiting for all the oil to drain so i was just looking around the underside for the hell of it when I noticed something that I had never seen before. It was at the rear of the vehicle and it was weird looking, what it looked like was a black box that had what looked like an acuator comming out of it hooked up to one of the suspension parts. It looked like a sensor of some kind. It also had a wire comming out of it... This was hooked up to only the left side of the suspension only. I dont have pictures but I could get some alot later from now...wife has the car and all... But I was hoping to find out wtf this is, cuz I have never seen anything like this before and my knowledge of cars is pretty great...I was thinking maybe this is a JMD feature only since I could not find anything before posted...but then again its hard to search for something when you dont know what to search for! Haha. That is also why I posted it in this forum. Any thoughts on what it is? Oh yeah, I think it might have something to do with the tuned suspension option we got...or it has something to do with that..

LMAO - somehow the urgency of this post doesn't come through as it should.

Do yo have a girlfriend - disgruntled even? It's a GPS tracker and she knows where you are right now and all the time.

It's probably that black box everyone is talking about... I think mycar has this too, but i don't ever remember having that option, i even looked at the owners thing, but it didn't say.
Maybe i'm wrong and it's just something else, since my knowledge of cars is moderate... If it is that, all i really know is that i want it taken out...
