Does bumping some Bassnectar and Doctor P count as doing something to the Alti?

I'm waiting on some inductor coils and project boxes for my custom 3kHz low-pass filters for my rear fill, and trying to figure out budgeting for struts(already got springs and shocks, want to do it all at once), and a brake job(pads/rotors).

Just received my KYB structs today. still waiting on the boot. thinking i should go on and get the shocks done also. is the front a pair a shocks like the structs? only seeing one part number.
also, thinking about ordering some lowering springs in time for the install next weekend. or just get some tint cause this current heat wave it really encouraging it right now.

^^The fronts are struts (the ones with the spring perch). The rears are shocks.

Raybestos Advanced Tech Rotors. O'Reilly Auto Parts in my area was discontinuing them and cut the price big. Not sure if it's a national clearance. The rotors look good.

I replaced the front 3 spark plugs yesterday, and stuck with the stock plugs. The Altima has 95,000 miles on the original plugs (i think) and still lots of power, good gas mileage. Doing the rear plugs and valve cover next.

i was starting to think it was a localing thing since it wasn't announced on the website. i will go into O'Reily on this.

Bypassed a sweet blue GTR on the way to work this morning.
And saw a clean (maybe '11) silver Z with aftermarket rims and tails in someone's driveway while leaving the neighborhood. Will try to catch a pic next time.

I was messing around with my audio system. Wanted to find out how the system would sound without the sub hooked up. Wheres too much rattling going on in the trunk. Well come to find out that the sub wasnt even hooked up... The ground cable came out of the ground distributor block. So i put the ground cable back in and now. The bass is so loud that i cant hear the rattling back there...
