Spammer or not, I would be very interested in hearing anyone experience with them. I have never like the original design where you dont know when they might start being too loose.

May not be a spammer. No dubious links in his postings. May be just new here. His posts are also on-topic.

Just install them and that's it.

I did discover you need to take the rubber boot off to be able to get a socket on it. Not a problem as it comes off and goes back on pretty easy. Also comes with an allen wrench to hold the upper part to keep it from rotating when tightening the nut, very thoughtful.

Just put them on my car. Have not really driven it much yet as the brakes still need some more attention.
