I did the bushings and ball joints (upper and lower) on my ‘79 EC earlier this year. I can say unequivocally that if you can afford it, replace the arms as a unit. I could not, so I had to remove and replace the bushings and ball joints, reusing the original arms. I saved a lot of money, but getting the old Read more

Rats are so reliable in what they will do for food that they have been a fantastic tool for behavioral neuroscience since forever. At our school, we have TMJ pain researchers that created automated food dispensers and software that will measure how much food the rats can be bothered to try and chew with different Read more
