    I saw a guy on here with a JL Audio setup of W7's mounted behind the rear seats. I have no idea how he did that without cutting out the rear wall. Those things are about a foot deep.

    If the uniball on my TC UCAs are squeeking, what's the best kind if grease to put on it? And if I take out the uniball to apply the grease, do I have to get another alignment?

    Good question. I hear teflon it the best for these. I have a set but never had to grease them myself always have Big O do it for free. However you should not need to take out the ball because they have zerks.

    this is a good idea, but it will never work, see noobs are only going to find this thread if they know how to use search, and if they knew how to use search they wouldn't need this thread.

    The uniballs don't have zerks (at least I don't think they do). The bushings do, but the uniball has a reservoir-like dip where a lot of water can get in there. Then cause it to squeek later on. For a quick fix I sprayed some wd40 and it worked for a few days. I'll have to take the uniball out this weekend to properly grease them

    Alright, since I can't find the info here or the manufacturer's site, I'll ask. Mine came with SAT radio and I assume it's free for the intitial period of time only and I need to renew if desired. My question is how long. It's been more than 6 mos and it's still working. Am I just lucky (actually I don't use it much) or it's ending soon?
