Washed it.

Needs a paint job, but hey, it's no show car.

I leave it in for about a thousand miles... Many say the first 300 some say 3000 but I think if it's going to do anything it will do it in the first 1000 beyond that I don't think it will hurt but I highly doubt it's doing any good...

I have about 500 until my next change, could I add it now?

I have been noticing it feeling slightly "looser" than normal when going down the road. Best description i can think of would be as if something were weighing down the read end, creating less pressure on the front tires. Idk what to think. Just tightened everything like two weeks ago.
I have similar issues except my vibes are high speed (65+) and only translate to the brake pedal and rear view mirror. Jeeps gonna Jeep I guess. My clunking is probably my Rusty's HD flex joints (like JJ's) because its coming from that area, they're tight and flex perfect I guess it's just a noisy joint (cheap)

My Rusty's joints are the source of one of my noises, but I have to keep tightening the front upper shock mounts too.

I have rustys stuff. I suppose the joints could be the source like you said. Did it always make noise?

Hmm forgot about the upper shock mounts lol. I will try to check everything over tomorrow. Probably will not have time to do much trouble shooting though, but i will defiantly check the upper shock mounts. Thanks

well in that case...
But seriously, that's ironic. My 87 was born in CA; raised in AZ, and I almost feel guilty for bringing her to the midwest.
As penance I rarely drive her in the snow.

Snow doesn't hurt. But certain areas put salt brine on the roads that kills metal.

No it started not too long ago and its only on my drivers side and when going over certain bumps or if the suspension unloads. I had a retaining nut on my adjustable control arms come loose and I thought that was the cause but I tightened it up and its still there. Do you guys have the HD flex joints or stock style clevite joints?

Around here they put down salt if they think it's going to snow.
And after one good drive though it you can see the rust dripping from any exposed metal.
You won't find many old classics around here. They don't live that long.

I think the drivers side joints suffer cuz there is always the weight of a driver, not always a passenger.

500 should be plenty of time to loosen any of the gunk up that can be removed by any kind of cleaner... If its seriously built up then you could probably put it in full time at every oil change and not cure anything... I think it's really only intended on loosening up light build up and I would think 500 miles is plenty to do that
