Me: Hey, your lower ball joints are really, really bad.
Cust: How much longer can I go?
Me: You can't. You should get them replaced right now.
Cust: Nah, that can't be right.

What'* wrong with not using a clutch? If done correctly, it saves wear/tear on the linkage. I can float/reverse float an 18speed without touching the clutch.
