    Yeah I had to replace it. My kids Nissan Titan, the spiders let go and shot through the cover and couldn't get replacement parts for it anywhere.

    I'm definitely all over the place but used to prefer the strongest stuff you could find. KBS Stout and Backwoods Bastard.

    Now I'll settle for a sour from Eagle Park Brewing. We should definitely give that place a visit again.

    Edit: I stand corrected. There's a beer out there with 67.5% ABV. Yikes.

    I'm pulling out the technicality card..
    Exact figures will need to be googled, based on my laziness.
    I thought beer only goes up to like idk 8-10%?
    above that and you're getting into Meads, then wines and liquors then hard liquor.

    I wonder what was going on through that guy's head when he made it. By all means I was inclined to agree with you once I read the no carbonation part o_O

    When I used to do leaf springs I would remove wheels and shocks then unload the springs and unbolt them. I've only ever done it while using a lift and 2 pole jacks though

    While we're talking about springs, is anyone in SE Wisconsin that is comfortable using a portable spring compressor or can recommend a shop to assemble front springs and struts for a lift kit?

    I'm a little nervous to use a clamshell compressor from harbor freight

    There's a method of compressing it while installing that looks pretty straight forward.
    When I get around to replacing mine. That's the route I'm trying.

    That sounds right for a titan, they had so many problems with grenading the spiders, the axle shaft bearings and the seals. I replacing those almost daily when I was a Nissan tech

    Security had hired 13 yr old kids to do undercover "surveillance". We sat near where you walked into the seating area from the concourse, and were partaking in some party favors. Two 13 year old girls walked out with three cops stood there for a few seconds, whipped around pointing at my buddy and me and yelled, "Those two!!" $130 ticket for possession.
    Allowed.

    Yeah I learned a lot about that axle while trying to fix it and source parts. I ended up buying a brand new assembly from Nissan. That truck is a beast but that axle can eat a big one!
