    grease your springs

    This is the brass bushing out of my spring with only 4000 miles. I greased them when I purchased it but could not get to the one behind the drain pipe for the half bath. It had grease on fitting so I assumed it was greased when new. 4000 miles later I greased them again and purchased a 90 for that fitting. That's when I notice a flat spring. Tonight I replaced the spring and found brass bushing already worn out. Looks like it had a little grease but not enough.

    This is the same condition I find on my springs and I grease my wet bolts on every trip. I just recently replaced all of my springs on my 2018 Solitude 310gk with hopes that the replacement springs would have spring eyes that were a bit rounder. All of my brass bushings were shot.
