I too waiting for daylight savings. It's a little tough in the morning but sure is nice to have some extra daylight after work. I spent most of yesterday installing new shocks in the strut assemblies in or family sedan, a '00 Acura TL. All in all, not a difficult job, I am just getting too old to be working in my cramped unheated garage.
I bought the $12.99 Harbor Freight spring compressor. It was kind of scary using such a cheap tool but in the end, it actually worked really well.
Hey Smitty, what do you use for a spring compressor on mid-sized struts? The cheap tool I bought should work one more time, but wondering what recommendation you'd have? Next week, I am installing a new suspension in my Miata. I've been bitten by the Miata bug, upgrades coming soon. Should be fun!
Whenever I respond to a CL add, I make it clear I am not a spammer. Using a reference to a local landmark helps. If I am selling and I think I am being spammed, I ask a local sports, maybe a college team or whats best time to drive a busy local road or something else unusual.
I bought a 1600lbs of Blaschak today, seems like a lot of small chips mixed in, maybe the bottom of the barrel? We'll see how long it lasts. Take care everyone.
