    Wait did you not wrap the shaft in anything before putting it in a vice?!

    Got the new LCA bushings installed, realized I never ordered a new UCA bolt and nut, and then started looking for the new alignment bolt sets, looked for the alignment bolts/sleeves for 2.5 hours and called it quits, I found the box they came in but never them, FML.
    Ordered new alignment bolts/sleeves, they're supposed to be here the 26th and I'm hoping the local dealer has the UCA bolt and nut, I need to have my truck back by the 1st of the year.

    Is it just me or does it look like it was ground flat?

    That's the old shaft. We ground it flat on 2 sides and put it in the vise.

    That's because it was ground flat.

    You seriously thought I'd put a new shock shaft in a vise?

    C'mon man... give me more credit than that.

    enjoyed some global warming and finished driver front wheel well undercoating with CF 3000 and snapped the liner in, cleaned out wheel arch molding piece and bolted back together

    this product was super easy to apply with the air gun & wand that atomized it
    no drip and no funky smell or odd yellow color
    made my truck look 10+ years younger in this weathered area
    i am super stoked to see it light up in the sunshine or certain night lights
    it could be a breathtaking moment!

    still need to finish the passenger side with FF before the cold returns...

    I noticed that my trip meter is 2 miles less than the actual trip. My work is exactly 30 miles. Trip meter says 28. Based on that it’s roughly 6.5% less actual recorded miles.

    Everything under the hood is intended to be moisture proof/resistant. You'll be fine.
    The Costco ones work week and are priced well. Do yourself a favor and rainx your windshield when you replace the wipers. Makes a world of difference. Don't even need the wipers at highway speed. That's 65+ mph for you California folks.

    I can't remember if it was the CRV ones or another brand but there's a write up on here somewhere for installing another brand of nozzles that have a spray pattern rather than the blob/stream that our truck's nozzles do
