    The hardest part by far is getting the axles out of the old birfs. I used the pipe slam trick but it was still tough.

    Also, I watched the Jonsey videos on youtube as a supplement to the instructions I had. Seeing it all done helped out a lot, but I don't agree with how little grease was used on some parts, as well as a few of the things that were beaten with a hammer.

    Just did my axles and brakes with Terrain Tamer. No issues. It's old hat at this point so not sure about what is a "pointer" anymore :p
