This thread has had very heavy participation, why?  Are you guys all too
lazy or ascared to remove the strut, such that you could also relube the
strut tower thrust bearing and the wheel bearing, as well as the two ball
joints,  free up the toe adjustment, and overhaul the calipers,  while
you're in there?  Could have had all this done by now.
