    How reliable are those jacks? they look scary.

  2. Top tip, take the bottom wheel bolt out last when taking the wheel off, that way the wheel doesn't fall off when you take the final stud out

    Hey man I love what y’all are doing. I remember when I broke my cv shaft (that’s what we call it in America) when I moved from California to Texas. I was towing a trailer with my 2007 Honda Accord coupe (never doing that again) and it tried to send me hard right with the trailer and all of a sudden, it wouldn’t move at all. I had to leave it in Kingman, Arizona and keep going with a rental suv to Texas and I came back for it once I moved my stuff into my place (I had to return the suv to Arizona). My friend and I hauled ass all the way back to Kingman to fix the car. We picked up the car, dropped off the suv, and we limped the car right back to Texas. I ran across 3 time zones in 4 days (pacific, mountain, and central) and it was one hell of a ride. I would do it all over again in a hot second. Keep on rocking!!!

    Perhaps the one thing that's universally transferable from working on bikes to cars, anytime you break something, it's time to upgrade!

    a prudent idea would be to replace the other 2 shafts also while saving 2 old shafts for spares..that is if u got the dough..

    Do you not need to clean that grease off of the rotors? I was expecting to see them clean it and when they didn't show it, I figured they did it off camera. Wheel goes on, I see greasy fingerprints…
