I had a prop rod on a 1987 Ranger. Used a single spare nitro-lift and it made a big difference when doing stuff.

Do you think you could have be good with only 1, or are you kinda OCD and find that symmetry fits better?

Kinda OCD but I tried with just 1 to keep the other as spare but it didn't hold. It slowly sagged then closed.

Just an update, Joker Bu is with the dealer for cracked piston. Will update and show the work order as soon as I get the vehicle back. On the bright side, the gave me a 2019 equinox 2.0T LT as a loaner. People get surprised when I merge in the freeway.

You had a piston crack on a 2.0T? The forum has only seen a couple reports of that on the 2.0T, pretty uncommon. I see exhaust mods but did you do any tune?
Sent you a PM.

Hello, it's all fixed. Been using highest grade octane (91) available in whatever State I go. Even when I had my 04 Tahoe, been using 91 octane. It's all good now.:)
