Brand new pivot bearings - pack with grease?

if they are working properly they should fully rotating around the bearing as the suspension cycles up and down .

Oscillating applications will prevent the balls from fully rotating around the inner/outer race. The balls do not stop moving when the direction of rotation changes.

As part of regular maintenance I clock the bearings in my suspension. Rotating the inner race 90 deg will move a new set of balls into the load area.

If you ever need a new battery, an obsolete battery or maybe an old one rebuilt, you can take it to Interstate batteries at 20148 102 avenue Langley. They do most of the brand names. I have an older Milwaukee 14.4 cordless kit. The batteries were done and I didn't want to buy an all new kit, so I got them to rebuild a couple of the old batteries. (No, I don't work for them, lol) Edit; You can't beat Makita grinders, They are bullet proof.

Plus one for interstate

My eyesight is changing.

Hey beutiful people…..

Turning 50 soon and my eyesight has really changed within the last few years. Started out by having trouble seeing close objects and now starting to have problems with further objects.

Thanks

Almost 50 and it has hit me like a brick wall in the last year. Driving at night is becoming and issue.

You are not alone

ICBC and Different Car Types?

GF Drives my 2001 F150 to work. Last week walked out to find her truck gone.

The next call we made was to the New West Police.

Was not stolen and she now has a better understanding of parking signs :eek:

This is a high theft truck and that is where my thoughts went

It's tough. Set a night up running with a couple friends tuesday nights rain or no rain. Not showing up results in massive shaming.

Try to get a spin in during week (boring) or a night ride weather permitting.
At least one ride, trail run, or touring ski in on weekends.
It's nothing like in summer, but as you say not bad if you lower the calorie intake.

Going to start trail running the SSBP with the dog, nothing special.

Good advice.

Nice one. Sure feels good.
Hopefully will survive the xmas party circuit unscathed this year.

Luck to get out twice a week in this weather. Just have to remember to eat portions that are relevant to my exercise levels. Easy to say hard to do when the weather has you watching Youtube videos.

Helmet or Handlebar Lights?

Got some Solarstorm X2's off Lightmalls, and so far they have been excellent while riding. However I have read a couple horror stories about the cheap chargers blowing up and starting fires/damaging houses. Does anyone have any suggestions for ways to improve safety while charging these lights? If i were to charge them with a surge protector cord in a metal box would that lower the risk? Any alternative chargers or recommended extension cords to use with these?

Just put them on a dedicated power bar surge protector. Never had an issue with mine. Have not tripped the fuse on the power bar.

Rookies, if it is easy for me to manage a yard with 400 to 500 trailers and 100 power units to pull the trailers, why can they find a car in lot with 50 to 60 units.

Clearly marijuana use leads to long term brain damage.

No like alcohol, abuse leads to long term damage. ABUSE not USE learn the difference. You abuse alcohol it is clearly apparent.

I am gonna have to call BS on the hash having no effect on the cat especially close to a 1/8 of a ounce .

In HS a buddy and I ate a gram of hash each , talk about wrecked , totally different high than smoking it .

A body stone is much like being drunk , and I had it from pot and hash so it does work when ingested .

Makes no sense, I never did find the hash so I assumed the cat ate it. Could be someone lifted the hash or…. We are talking about 1989
