comment Rough ride on LL Bean Subaru, are the struts the cause?
The L.L. Bean edition uses the exact same suspension as the non-L.L. Bean models.

comment Is Redline Lightweight Shockproof appropriate for an aging 2004 Subaru Impreza manual gearbox?
@Bob: ya, and it was more than conclusively shown that the cocktails were not a good thing to run in people's transmissions. I also added my personal experience to the answer here.

comment Will different tread depths hurt my 4 wheel drive?
You may not buy the line from the tire salesman, but you may end up buying a new differential if you ignore what the vehicle's manufacturer has to say for your exact model.

comment Wheel stuck or fused to drum
@Iszi: lol. I just recall a time I spent half an hour bashing on a control arm with a rubber mallet and finally went to Home Depot, got a 3 lb sledge, and 1 good smack later had the arm dropped off the ball joint. My rubber mallet doesn't see as much use anymore. ;-)

@Iszi: That's pretty easy to cope with. Put a rag or piece of cardboard over the area you intent to hit.

Using a mallet with some weight to it, like a 3lb sledge, will greatly reduce the need to "beat the crap out of it".
