David, I think there is a liquid that you can get that will accomplish the same
thing. I believe Victoria British has some, but I could be mistaken.

I was wondering, though, why are you putting the same leaves back on? They're
comparatively cheap at some places. I recently rebuilt my rear suspension, and
after all the s*** I went through to get those things off, I sure as heck
wouldn't want to put anything but new ones back on. I do NOT want to do that
again any time soon. Damn 30-year-old bolts!

Happy Holidays
