Drivetrain / Re: 09 Legacy woes
« Last post by wheelbuilder_25 on Yesterday at 08:21:21 PM »
I've heard that Legacys are picky about wheel bearings and the ABS.  No sort of lights on the dash after the replacement ?  If there is, I'd wonder if it thought a wheel was slipping  and was trying to shift the torque around.  If not, I'd be suspicious of the brake pad you had to force hanging up. Are the driveaxles OK ?
Other than that, no clue.

Does keto really endorse bacon grease as the food lube of choice?

Some of them literally save the bacon grease to cook with at a later date. 
Some of them believe that is a bit extreme and mostly choose healthy cooking oils and don't shy away from eating bacon and/or meat fat

I guess I'd fall into the latter category,  but if you want to get into that discussion we can start a Keto thread

Drivetrain / 09 Legacy woes
« Last post by madlife on October 22, 2017, 10:17:21 PM »
09,  2.5i  160k miles

Car sounded like a handful of rocks in a coffee blender.  Or really loud grinding gears.   I originally thought,  rear diff from running different tires???

1.  So i changed the fluid,  no improvement.  But I noticed it got quieter when going around a bend..  6&12 bearing test had slop in passenger rear
2.  Saturday I change bearing
          2a.  the hub pulled shoved the axle WAY in and the bearing split in half.
          2b  had to put the bolts back in and sledge hammer back of of bearing out
          2c  The metal plate that holds the e-brake guts comes off with the bearing.  I had to separate these.
          2d. this whole thing involved disassembling and re-assembling the e-brake.
          2e.  Also did rear pads/rotors.   Drives size had 1 pad that didn't want to go in and need to be coerced aggressively.  I did not have anything to grind the tabs with.   
3.  Results = a little quieter.... WTF??   
4.  50 miles trek home Saturday wasn't terrible.  Sunday she has a lot of shit to do. When she leaves,  she says the car is a lot quieter than the day before..   :idiot2: WTMotherF?
5. After about 200 miles on Sunday she said the car is vibrating 

6... So....   The car shakes when you are accelerating.  You can even feel it at 15, but gets stronger as you go faster up to a point.  Let off the gas it stops shaking.   pop it in 2nd + floor it + compress brakes and it still shakes.

I'm with Dave, if it's gonna have mustard it better be coarse and gritty, none of that runny bright yellow shit
Doesn't have to be coarse and gritty, but definitely spicy and brown.  Preferably sharing a name with a Polish hero of the American Revolution.

On hot dogs I'm usually more of a ketchup and raw onion kinda guy
But occasionally sauerkraut and mustard, but again, it's gotta be good mustard for me

I like the shredded + cream cheese idea.  There is a use for the bright yellow garbage mustard on cheap hot dogs, and seared into the patty for that authentic In-n-out Animal Style burger.  T minus 1 day until I fly out west for the real thing.   8-)

If you ever try the expensive Kraft slices or from the Deli,  it is far better than the cheap sliced american cheese.   Definitely worth it.

/r/keto will disagree with you.

When I go fancy, I haven't typically done "good american", but I'll remember that for next time.

I have a press for making stuffed burgers, much fun.
Burgers of ground chuck, egg, salt, pepper, oats or breadcrumbs... Sometimes finely chopped bacon mixed in

Sautee mushrooms, onions, diced garlic lightly
Fill burger with above and choice of cheese depending on what i have... Swiss, goat, feta (if feta try replacing onions with chopped spinach), sharp cheddar, etc
Toppings depend on cheese choice too.

If I've got the time, I like shredded Cheddar mixed with cream cheese to top a burger.  Even better if I can top one with a couple jalapeno poppers.

Here and there good old American cheese fits just fine.

Yes, I think that most "American" cheese is called cheese "product".

There is no good american cheese. American cheese isn't even cheese. That's a solid way to kill a perfectly good burger.

That said, as Dave proposed, if your craving is something different it may serve. I also tend to prefer garbage hot dogs to gourmet hot dogs.. So its all situational.

My go-to "fancy burger" is:
-Ground chuck cooked in bacon grease (patty made with Adobo seasoning, black pepper, egg, cilantro)
-Mozzarella or swiss cheese
-Mushrooms & Onions (sauteed with bacon greaset, pepper, worcestershire sauce)
-Toasted Potato Roll or Pretzel Roll
-whole-seed style mustard on bottom bun
