Default by far the worst automotive task I've done

installed new leaf packs on the jeep.
the bushing sleeves rusted firmly onto the bolt so I had to cut the leaves off of the car, cut the rubber bushing, cut the sleeve, spray a ton of PB in there and beat it off
unbelieveable pain in the *** for a job that SHOULD take 1 hour.

the driver's side spring I couldn't get the bushing cut for some reason, maybe it was me getting tired of hot rubber flying in my face... I had to burn it with a torch until I could beat the bushing off and cut the sleeve.

at least I had a nice propane heater to keep me warm though the garage floor is a nasty mess.
