    I've never noticed clean mineral spirits leaving an oily film on parts. That said, the spirits in your parts washer recirculates, so it's actually spirits mixed with oil and dissolved grease from those parts you've washed previously, whereas the brake cleaner is always fresh and uncontaminated. But in the end it's the same result – the spirits cleans off the vast majority of the crud, and the brake cleaner finishes off the cleaning process so the paint can adhere. 🙂

    Eric why not use a wire wheel instead?

    I have a 99 OBS Tahoe that is the GMT400 … Are they listed only until 98 to not confuse many people since 99 especially for the Tahoe was a dual body year?

    Eric. Use a power washer.


    When you're scrubbing your hole with a wire brush, you know you need to change your diet.

    31:00 I have had good luck taking a drill bits around the inner sleeve. Drill multiple times and then lube the sleeve. Good luck, highway stars!


    if you buy the sleeve you can install all the parts new and hold it to the old one for perfect reference i highly suggest it

    I don’t like those bushings they make squeezing noise after couple of months they needs to be greased again

    Eric, you need some pipe wrenches to take those tie-rods apart.

    When i did the poly bushing replacement on the rear UCA, i found a thread somewhere that said to use a hole saw just smaller than the hole to cut the rubber out and then follow up with a wire wheel to clean the bore the rest of the way. Worked great.
