just don't park it in a low parking garage and forget.. most of the garages around here I only have a few inches clearance with my 33's... I'm betting the liftgate would hit the roof now.

Just received mine and made the swap. Wow, what a difference! I guess I should have read the thread, I did not see the part about how heavy it is! Thankfully I was under the door and was able to hold it up. Best $26 I have spent on the X so far!

I can't believe you guys are having so many issues doing this swap without help, I'm not a big guy or anything, but I did both in under 5 minutes myself just holding it up with one hand...

Do they not make a special kind for the colder weather? Seems like it would be an easy fix to have a special set for up there...

Why can't they put "dino" oil in them, when it gets really cold the
"dino" oil gets thicker and will work better...

Sort of like why don't they put the soda where they store the
silverware on the airlines? Silverware is ice cold, soda not so much.
