You guys are making me want to just tear mine apart and fix it before it happens...

Thats what I figured/planned to do but wanted to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. Cheap synthetic oil or the cheapest thing I can find, Rotella? Doesn't matter? Im not wanting to start a pissing match about oil...just wondering.

I would call CJ and order the hardened kit. Get it done!
