Seriously, that deep into the copper is not something that is going to yield another 60k of service life. That one rod would spin that bearing well before any additional 60k miles. See, it's stuff like this which seriously lowers the level of discourse on this forum...sadly...although most likely a post like this one is simply done to stir up flames since the poster has multiple identities along with a tainted past on the M5board under other usernames. Apparently M3post does not mind people having multiple identities on this board since they are aware of the situation.
