    Met your mom about 3 weeks ago. Said that I knew you. She changed me more :notsure:

    Seriously, she’s really nice. I would sometimes buy food from Pet Food Express when we were out and it was close to 8pm. Now I just let my dog starve until the next morning. Gotta make sacrifices to support local businesses. ;)

    We’ve been buying food there since moving to Benicia 4 years ago. Every 10th or 11th bag is free! That Orijen shit is expensive...

    Hmm....so, 20% chance you go? Wow, those are some pretty weak numbers, young man. Look at this forecast! Time to go play in the snow.

    I just installed a winch....so maybe.

    Edit: Shit, what am I saying. One of my front lower shock bushings is MIA.

    I caught it while torquing the caliper bolts for my new Tundra brakes.

    A lot of crap and too much money spent

    Damn, that's a lot of movement.

    That's a good one. When you do your repair, torque/ tighten that bolt with the vehicle on the ground on its weight. That bushing rotates with suspension movement and when its torqued up in the air like it, it always has tension on it at ride height and will cause the bushing to wear out faster

    Nothing to get excited about
    There's always the alternative "weak build" route to the spot.

    Excellant advice! Thanks!

    I'm fairly certain when I initially installed them I torqued it up in the air. Then when I replaced the lower control arm bushings a couple months ago I also torqued it up in the air.

    You mean the normal route? That requires going through that meadow that's probably way too flooded for anyone without a snorkel. Or are you talking about the back way that we went with Dan that weekend everyone came up and murdered a tree? I don't see either way being an option for me. Is there a third way?
