I have a lot to do tomorrow.

New pads/rotors up front. Plugs, wires, fuel filter. Seafoam, and an oil change. Also, a new oil pan gasket.

Got the truck all ready for winter. Remote start (Smart phone capable for unlimited range), complete new rear brakes (caliper, rotor, pads), got my sand bags in the back (only doing 280 lbs this year instead of 420), brand new tires with some meat on them, and lots of under-body coating.

Rust. The pins had run out of lubrication and gotten rusty from the calipers and were sticking. I figured I may as well replace them. The rear pads were just shy of the squealer so they have been on a while.

What a pain my car has been. After adjusting the control arm myself and getting the tire to move back to where it should be. I don't have any major issues currently. I got the alignment done today. I just drove the car back from the shop. I was very pleased at how it handled.
