On ALL the oem vehicles that use pillow bushings, do you think any manufacturer would spare the expense to put loctite or retaining compound on them for production purposes? Thats pennies per car they can and will save.Car is still on jackstands, tires off. Not a big deal to unbolt the lca toe link, press out, clean, press in, bolt, torque.
From the factory, as a virgin press fit, no.On ALL the oem vehicles that use pillow bushings, do you think any manufacturer would spare the expense to put loctite or retaining compound on them for production purposes? Thats pennies per car they can and will save.
Of all the pillow ball bushings I've replaced on the rear of ford explorers and hyundai sonatas, i always used anti-sieze. The mechanical fit between the part and the arm is pretty extreme.
Lol, guy's over hear trying to talk me out of doing the job by the book.Well, suit yourself. Lol. Just trying to save you some hassle.
I'll let you know how it feels! Redline makes some good stuff.Thanks for sharing the MT LV find! 😎
I'm gonna use it as an excuse to call or go by a local race shop that has Redline oils to check on it.
I got MTL 75w80 for a Mazda there before when I needed it quick.
They had a Buick Grand National on the Dyno tuning and mostly older stuff, but a few newer turbo cars around. Pre-covid.
Actually, she was on race ramps and jackstands, i leveled out the frame for the fill/drain operations. Literally put a 2' level on the frame, lolHave you drove it since the clutch spring swap? Or is it still on jack stands?

Curious how the clutch spring feels. I don't remember there being a huge difference in the ST but since I'm exercising the credit card for tranny **** I might as well get it if it's worth it.Actually, she was on race ramps and jackstands, i leveled out the frame for the fill/drain operations.

I really wanted all "Natural" Aluminum stuff, but Boomba had none, and no eta. So I bought black to hold me over.
The other stuff is 5 Spurs center caps and Bullitt power button!!
For some reason I thought the center caps were going to be raised crosshairs, but alas, I was mistaken. Which makes me like them a bit less, but they'll clean easier. I may outsource to get them that way, idk yet, lol
