DIY 75k mi Service?

I'm currently on an extended business trip, so I thought it might be the perfect time to have my '06 RRS SC'ed in for some basic maintenance. It's at about 73k miles, and just had its 60k service a few miles late around 65k (and obviously the oil changes since then). I shot an email over to a dealership near my office thinking I'd have one of the folks at my office deliver it for me. They recommend the 75k service for nearly $1k. I know, I know if you can't pay the maintenance then you don't belong in a RRS. It's not that at all, I just don't like feeling like I'm getting ripped off either. Hell, I just put a $2k clutch in my Z06 but I new it was necessary for the power it makes. I'm not sure I feel like a $1k service is necessary.

So I'm thinking about just doing the 75k service myself when I get home. I have access to a lift, air tools, etc. etc. So my question is are there any specialty tools required for anything listed below, and/or DIY guides for some of the funky stuff:

The only things I'm really questioning are:
  • Resetting the Service Indicator[/*:m:26k54ild]
  • Replace Anti-Roll Control Valve Filter[/*:m:26k54ild]
But are there any others that are particularly annoying on a RRS SC'ed? I've had my 'vette apart and back together more times than I care to think about, built a solid axle swapped 4Runner, LS1 swapped a FD RX7, and worked on everything from my old B2200 to a friend's F430 so I'm decent with a wrench. I just wanted to know if there are particular oddities to working on the RRS. Thanks!


PS- does anybody else think that for nearly $1k they could at least throw in brake and powersteering fluid flushes???

It's really not a long list of things that get replaced... a pretty long list of things that get inspected though. They only charge 2.4 hours of labor, so it's not a lot of actual work. What's my time worth? I don't know, but it's not like I get paid hourly and I'll be missing a day of work to do the work. I always find that a silly argument. I do enjoy working on cars with my buddies (I like wrench work, not a big fan of "ranch" work as you put it though ;) ) though so I consider it fun. That being said, I obviously don't have the proper diagnostic tool to reset the service indicator. Otherwise everything else looks straight-forward. I just asked about the anti-roll control valve filter specifically since that is very specific to the RRS and I personally haven't worked on one.

Sorry about the ranch :shock: - although working in a ranch might be more fun then working with the wrench :) - I hate when my smartphone guesses the next word - sometimes they are not that smart. In any case, the point wasn't literally about your hourly rate - as a businessman with busy lifestyle how much it worth to you to spend your free time working on the car. Since you enjoy doing so - i am sure it worth your time.

Gotchya... I was just joking around about the 'ranch' thing. Yeah, I guess with business taking up so much of my time working on cars is still a bit of a release that reminds me of the 'good old days' when I "had" to fix my own cars. LoL.

I just wanted to know if there are any pitfalls in the 75k rundown.
