EVERYTHING causes cancer in California. This is why, when people move from Ca. to other states, the disease spreads.

I'm sorry to say you guys are very misinformed you need a pie tool to properly check the thrust angle in the muffler bearing otherwise it will last only a few miles,trust me I have been installing muffler bearings since the days of the horse drawn wagons and have never had a problem when the thrust angle is set right.

Not true. My neighbor said thrust angles dont matter. Hes a shoesalesman so he knows what hes talking about. Ive never adjusted anything and no problems. And my friend dosent even have any bearings. He just gets really bad gas mileage lol

And here I thought my tick was a stuck lifter. Guess the muffler bearings are going out. Matches the unit bearing that's going out lol.

My barber said you need to gather up a bunch of old thermometers an break then open and use the mercury to lube the bearings otherwise they will chatter

I heard you can fit 35's without a lift just by changing the wiper actuator.
