    You’re talking to the guy who changed his needle bearing because his wheel bearing was bad. This guy doesn’t think that far ahead. :rofl:

    Haha! I usually work by myself and get creative sometimes. In 2WD applications where I've needed the wheels to not turn, I've jammed a dowell/hammer/ice scraper into the brake pedal with the front seat slid forward*


    *safety third. Not recommended!

    Same. Just makes sense to install the lift & this at the same time.

    Order the seal when you buy the bushing. You want both

    + another 1 on ordering and installing the seal! Some say you can reuse it but I'm pretty sure I nicked mine and then installed a new one just in case. Would hate to have to go that far again for a weeping $15 seal
