You're determined to make me make MVBob crawl under my dead car and take a picture of what a 14 year old Utahr car looks like, aren't you! Your feelings will be hurt, trust me. Even my exhaust hardware comes off without using penetrating oil.

lol!!

You'll hear a ball joint give JC, just be mentally prepared to brake when you hear the telltale Clunk and feel the body hit the tire We in the Northeast dont have to worry about exhaust hardware. Once every 3 years the whole mess falls out from under the car while driving down the road, and you just use new parts.

If your little balls are stuck, you can buy replacement zerks.

Coming from the Great White North I can attest to Motorhead'* statement.

I grease the zerks with one shot every oil change.

I have a good supply of spare zerks and replace them as soon as the little balls start to seize.

You know the kind of balls I mean..............the ones hanging between Barney'* hind legs.
