I haven't, but I would take a guess that vegetable oil would get sticky after a period of time. I would guess this would be a bad thing... I would also guess that I would have to chase away dogs...

Well, I still haven't soaked the springs after I posted but plan on doing so next time I get the YJ out. It's probably the fix, just need to do it.

I have one of those....my wife was helping me try to track it down and I asked her if she wanted the stethoscope to verify. I don't think she understood what I meant. :grin2:
