    At-205 in a small spray bottle will do your undercarriage rubber components some good. I spray mine annually to help with aging and grime.

    5100 Bilstiens today. Raised the front 1".
    20240425_161021.jpg Next! Should I have it installed or do it myself? It says about one to one and a half hours to install. For me that means one to one and a half DAYS.

    Do it yourself. You’ll also need some beer to keep you well lubricated.

    Nevada Mike, whiskey neighbor. Couple shots of some good Irish and speed bumps become ...fun.

    Is the active ingredient MEK or acetone? Something like that I am sure.
    It makes rubber parts swell and go flabby with time.

    But hey! If it works for what you want, Go for it!

    I bought my truck new 8 years ago and it now has 72k miles so I thought it was time to have the spark plugs changed. I checked with my dealer and they wanted over $600 to do it. I remember when I could buy spark plugs for $1.99 each and do the whole job for around $12.00. Even after my military discount it was still just over $100 for just the plugs. It is incredible how things have changed. Then I got my tools out and did the passenger side in just under an hour with no major problems. Then came the driver side and it took my old body around 3 hours. I had to remove the driver side tire to get to the 2 lower bracket bolts and proceeded to break off one of the wheel studs in the process. I noticed that my Wilwood brake pads need replacing so I will be ordering them tonight and then attempt to also replace the broken stud if I can. I am over 70 now and my whole body is hurting. Thankfully, I will be replacing my truck with a new 4th gen truck after they work out some of the initial problems. IMG_1149.jpg IMG_1151.jpg

    Installed a softopper I picked up off FB.

    I had a Bakflip MX4 before, going to rebuild it.

    Also did a light viper cut so I don't rub the 285s up front.

    Been doing it for years on my 17 y/o Corolla, just a small spray, everything is still in good shape and I live in the rust belt. Still have the original drive shaft boots with no cracks or tears. I do it in the summer when the rubber is already swollen a bit. A little wool wax over some rubber won’t hurt either. The brine out here will get to everything if it’s not protected.
