Yeah... tried to pull mine due to the noise (after lift) but couldn't get the darn thing to drop. So, I put the bolts back in :-/

driving in a turn and i get a rumble/vibration/f u cked up noise from the left rear. thought an axel went. NOPE.
All 5 lugs were finger loose. had a tire rotation at NTB on 3/29. When i called i was told tamp them down and bring it here ASAP.
When i get there he tells me jeep rims are notorious for this because of corrosion on the back side. Anyone know if this is true?

He pulled all 4 wheels, cleaned up the backs and reinstalled

Might not be, further resurch shows its s Swedish product, its a 2 step process with a thinner fluid going in all cavities, and a thicker fluid going on all the undercarriage.
Used on vehicles, industry, and on offshore instalation.

X2 never heard of that before. I've yet to have any problems like that when I torque them down properly on 3 different sets of oem rims.

I know they are very prone to corrosion on the inside where it seals to the wheel, causing it to leak air, had it on my zj and my buddy has the same issue with his rouges.Never problems with the lugs though..

I bought one a while back but a 3/4" shackle won't fit through the hole so i returned it. The shackle that came with it was a little sketchy. Let us know if it works fine but I wasn't going to chance having it become a projectile. Dug into the pockets and bought a Warn to be safe.
