That's a good catch! Once I zoomed in on the Febest picture, it's clear that the contact area is smooth, without the teeth of the OEM design (see photos in Post #1). Without these teeth, I would...

Thanks for the insult bud, but per my calcs, 10 qts = 2.5 gal = 1.25 gal coolant + 1.25 gal water. And if I recall, 1.25 gal coolant > 1 gal, hence my comment that it's slightly more than 1 gallon...

It's a bit more subtle than that. The red coolant is full strength, as you said, so it needs to be diluted 50/50 with distilled water. And the pink is already diluted 50/50 and should not be...

Yeah, you can use either. But if your car is one of the older ones, designed for red coolant (30K change interval), you will still have to use that interval even if you put in the pink coolant. In...

Shrug, maybe. The part looks wrong, it is a rubber bushing as opposed to the factory rod-end type bushing. I wouldn't switch to a different design unless I had to. Why not get this from the same...

No, that's the trailing arm bushing, not the carrier bushing. See post #88.

These bolts are notoriously very difficult to remove, however they are rarely "seized" - it's just a matter of getting enough torque on the bolt head to loosen it. You need two things - one is a way...

No. Just raise it all the way up.

You also don't need to remove the outer door handle, though it's a pain to get the actuator out with the handle in place - see my post #937 for tips.

I'd buy two replacement arms, with the bushings already installed. The prices have come way down to about $100 per arm, and will save hours of labor of pressing bushings in and out.

Did my left rear actuator today (having done the left front a couple of years ago). I'd say the rears are easier, with one exception, as noted by others - getting the actuator out of the door. I...

You never want to transmit the installation loads through the bearing. So since the outer race is the interference fit, you want to press on the outer sleeve.
