    I was replacing my shocks and installing timbrens and when I went to unbolt the old rubber stops, this is what i found.

    Yeh they were pretty messed up. I have looked into fluid film too, I just need to get the undercarriage really cleaned up first. I dont think the local car wash will quite cut it. I've heard of getting the undercarriage steam cleaned, and then relubricated, I just dont know anyplace where I can get it done.

    Looks like you applied some heat persuasion to get the nut off. Plow trucks have the weirdest stuff rust out. The Big Red Drain had the mount for the drivers side seat belt rust out. I just discovered it today.
