    Oh you people are so old! Listen to the bunch of you whine!

    Just kidding.... My two crappy disks in my lower back have slowed me a bit too. I really know it when I try to lift a tire and get it up on the hooks on the wall. In my younger days I'd have done that subframe just for the fun of giving it a go. Now? Fuggetaboudit. Ain't gonna happen!
    Hahahah! I'm starting to go there, too, Steve.

    I bought a 1/2" cordless impact wrench this fall because doing the seasonal tire change outs with a standard tire iron was just not in the cards anymore. Two weeks of lower back pain in both the spring and fall of 2015 made that $200 price tag look really attractive!

    And, I'm so glad I did it, too, because the front differential on my plow truck self-destructed this winter, so I tore the whole thing down in the driveway last month and put in a Detroit Locker along with replacing a host of other parts under the truck. The impact wrench was INVALUABLE on the project, which I completed without a single busted knuckle! Maybe not worth celebrating on most days, but this is my first significant auto project ever that I accomplished with no blood in the mix.

    Hah!

    Older.... and wiser, too!

    Hah! no blood then the job ain't done right. ;)

    Cheers Pat.

    Good to see some old hands posting again, I was afraid these forums were getting deadly moribund.

    Cheers to all Pat.

    Well Steve that was just the day after I brought it home from the dealers, my cars do get dirty but not for long I hate a dirty car. :)

    Cheers Pat.

    Finally I am able to at least find meet the members, why in hell does Edmund's keep mucking the site up. Why don't they leave well enough alone.

    Cheers Pat.
