I went to our community pool last night,which is olympic size and then some, to cool off and the water temperature was 95 degrees! When you looked across the surface of the water you could see a mist of steam coming off it.

    Global warming.

    They say it's caused by automobile emissions.

    Yea they also say too many cows farting causes it too. But what about these factories that pump out tons of this shit everyday? They dont mention that cause they pay to pollute. The way I see it is my car isnt hurting a fraction of what other sources are. What about other countries- I am sure alot of countries have no limitations on the shit the pump into the air. Here in the US we have to set the example so we have to have a ton of emissions BS on our cars. Ok sorry-rant over.

    I know it's funny but there is serious scientific inquiry into the effect of cow farts on global warming (google it) as ridiculous as it is, to me it's a way to take the focus off of big industry.

    I say eat more steak.

    whats up bro.

    mine were a bitch and i think they are actually worse now than before i changed them.

    there should be two bolts on the back of the caliper, and those are all you need to unbolt. they have a stupid 0 ring type of deal so as the pads wear the caliper adjusts and stays tight on the rotor.

    i hated doing this as the rotor is free sitting and sandwiched in by the spindle and the caliper. very dumb IMO.

    try to get them as tight as possible when you reattach and hold the o ring in place until it cant be held any more and you should be good.

    mine suck. but i probably should have bled the lines. oh well.

    i would say call me and id help but im out of town. sorry.

    good luck
