  1. Looks like the previous owner had recently installed the stabilizer…that thing looked pretty fresh. Then again, I live in the rustbelt. That’d have been rusty in a month.

  2. @mad66man We did. If you go to the coffeeandcarshouston (dot) com website it says right there “Welcome to the official home of the Houston Coffee & Cars monthly gathering”.

  3. @FordTruckClubTV Thanks! The new air tools from Sears ROCK! The new floor jack and jack stands are on their way from Sears so for now all I can say is that the current ones are “brand X” and on their way out the door…

  4. Screwdrivers make handy punches but, they don’t last quite as long as they should used this way. I would suggest a punch for removing stubborn bolts.

  5. @savoyk1 Thanks for the note. You’re right… we didn’t have a punch at the time (we do now!) and while screwdrivers can be used in a pinch, you should use a punch.

  6. @motorztv yes I understood that but my question was ” is there any reason you only applied it to just the shank and not the threads of the bolt” does putting anti-seize on the threads have any effect?? Im probably just being pointless but if there is a reason id like to know.
