Wish I had a good excuse like that! I'm just super lazy! Good on you for being a family man. :clap:I move at the pace of 3 kids and a job that travels. Working on the rear today.
Man that is impressive. I think there’s been a few 300k cars but I can’t imagine 240k. Thats like 7 throwout forks lmao. I’m on my fourth already. Oem, replaced with oem, pulled at 76k had a guy weld on beads, failed and replaced at 110k with a wikyd performance fork, replaced at 154k due to a engine rebuild with another wikyd performance fork.My rear bushings all were toast at 240K also....
I just installed new torshion arm bushings and DCR tubular brushed alum.Rears and they look awesome from the back.
much more adjustment avail. than stock too!
Everything was obtained from the dealer when possible. I got a parts manager who is awesome. Then for more Mopar stuff I went to Advance Auto. They had to get some things from “world pack”? But they came in a Mopar box and had real part numbers on them.Did you get new struts from the dealership or Modern?
I'm teetering on the edge of ordering completely new strut assemblies for front and rear for my own "period-correct", bone-stock, former press car.
honestly thats probably accurate... i've never even flushed my brake fluid (bad, i know...)I wouldn't be surprised if your calipers are dragging slightly causing more heat buildup. My passenger side front tends to stick more often than the driver's side, but I always do them in pairs.
You sound just a wee bit like "Mustie1 Will it Run" on YouTube.
He's published quite a few "fixit" videos on YouTube which I've enjoyed.
He takes somebody else's discarded or cheap, severely neglected cars, motors, bikes, chainsaws, generators, grinders etc and making them run again as good as new.
Some pretty interesting, cost effective tips and tricks to be picked up in many of those videos too.
