Re: [DML] My Suspension is better than Bill's

They looked like Grade 8 to me.  I had some small washers that I used
to put between the bushings and the shock towers.  So far no
squeaking.  It amazes me how many people are telling me I should have
tried all of these simple and cheap things first, as if I wasn't
intulligunnt enough to think of trying the cheapest things first
myself.  Believe me, I didn't want to spend $340 for some bent pieces
of metal.  I spent about a year debating it before I took the plunge.
