Re: Addcos? Who needs em? (Aaron's attempt at a suspension upgrade thread)

I thought that i would point this out. I found something that apparently Aaron was trying to keep secret from all of us. Even his Dad has a stockpile of Toxic Green material in his garage! You see people in the "know" realize "Green Material"= technically advanced suspension components and you're just a "closet toxic greenie"

Hahahaha...as long as they don't change it to amber grease I should be ok. Amber grease....hmmm....sounds like a bottle of something you'd see in the "dressing room" of a strip club.

@TJXJWJ, 01Grand, & CheapJeep: So when you guys do these mechanically inclined projects how do you guys go about knowing all the stuff and how to do it? Did you go to an automotive school or just past experience?

I certainly can't deny the advantages of being knowledgeable and doing your own work to save tons of money from bulls*** dealers and service stations.

Trial and error my friend. Mostly error but trial and error Seriously my father passed way back when I was 18 and I kind of inherited the responsibility of maintaining things for my mom,sister and myself.Needless to say I learned a lot of things the hard way. Those lessons you never forget though. Even today your average blue collar joe can't afford to take their vehicle to the shop for everything. I have 3 vehicles to maintain and sometimes can't keep up but I do most things myself to keep costs down. The key here though, is to stay within your comfort zone and not take on things above your skill level. There are many things that I just wont do. Then again these forums are a great tool for elevating your comfort zone. That is why Jeep Garage is such a success. People here like to share what they have learned over the years so that people can gain knowledge and raise their comfort level to do projects they may not do otherwise. I have learned a lot here and I know there is usually someone to bail me out if I screw up

I'm sorry that happened to you at such a young age, But I can understand trail & error goes a long way.

Re: Addcos? Who needs em? (Aaron's attempt at a suspension upgrade thread)

I learned a lot of what I know from handing my old man wrenches as a kid...and the rest was self taught. Trial and error too. You buy a part, you see where it is on your ride, you figure out how to remove and replace. Maybe it's mechanical inclination, mixed with the complete and utter refusal to pay someone else a ridiculous amount of money to do something you can do yourself. Same goes for my home...I do all my own stunts.

I also have a very low opinion of most "professionals". Everybody's an effing "professional".

Very true, When my father and I were having trouble narrowing down our heat problem until we discovered that is was the blend doors, we took it to 4 different mechanics we knew 4 different times and none of them knew how to fix it. So we ended up having to have the local Jeep Garage fix it for a ridiculous $80/hr not to mention the cost of the repair so I can definitely agree with you. Plus, these days it's a shame that some cars manufactured in this age try to be so advanced that it's almost impossible for a mom and pop repair service or yourself to even attempt to fix it and they steer you right to the stealership.

Re: Addcos? Who needs em? (Aaron's attempt at a suspension upgrade thread)

Don't get me wrong now...there are some great techs out there that really know what they are doing, be it automotive, or any other craft, and those guys are worth their price tag. Unfortunately, finding these guys is just about impossible and you can't trust shops. I've seen too much to ever trust a shop, and I've seen too many techs screwing people that don't know any better.

So true buddy!I can't count how many times I had to finish a job the "professionals" considered done. Missing bolts,wires not hooked up,etc. and there's always the rip off artist. It's always a good idea to at least research what is wrong with your vehicle and why even if you're not gonna fix it yourself. The "professionals" are wary of somebody that knows what "they" have to do and why.
