    Is there anything better than this?

    The spray will get rid of the squeek for a few hours, then comes back! I've resprayed the uniballs a bunch of times with this stuff and the squeek keeps coming back. What gives?

    That's what I use with no squeeking issues. Your best bet would be to contact your UCA manufacturer and ask them what they recommend. Let us know what they say please.

    How exactly do you "set" the 5100 shocks to an amount of inches of lift? I don't completely understand. And is just having a set in front ok?

    So I've been wondering, is there a point or purpose to the tow hook and loop in the front of my truck? Do the work together somehow? Or did they just make two things for variety?

    Many people in Southern Maryland could use a refill of this. Most people have faulty blinkers here! Must be low in fluid.
