    Yup! Buy a set of ten and put them in your glove box. When your next set of ten comes because you forgot that you put them in there you then sprinkle a pair here and there so you’ll never be without.

    Seeing as it’s a pain in the ass job, I’d say go with the genuine stuff. You don’t want to have to do it again in only a year or two.

    I’ll be doing mine in the spring when I overhaul my suspension.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Question about the thermostat, is it absolutely necessary? And if so is 180 really the best temp or should I look for one that goes a bit cooler like 160?
