What should have been easy...

I was sick of the clunking noise and finally got around to replacing these. They are just a bolt and nut with some rubber bits along the way. Should be easy enough to do without having to jack up the vehicle.

8mm bolt head. Easy. 13mm socket will handle that.

“The heck? It’s just a flat piece of metal with no nut?”

Rat bastards!

I couldn’t get anything to grab while I was under the vehicle, so jacked it up, took the tires off and was able to vise grip the top fastener thing.

What should’ve taken maybe 30 minutes ended up taking almost 2 hours. Urph.
