New to the forum, new to the KRX, new to SxS world. New to changing flat tires on SxS's!!
If you haven't already, take the time to remove and grease/anti-seize all the lug nuts/studs and retorque. I torqued to 80 after lubrication, I think the dry spec is 88. I have a small Tusk Y-handle lug wrench that I carry in my tool kit. It doesn't give much leverage. luckily I tried it before I needed it, it wouldn't budge any of the lug nuts. They are very squeaky tight and sticky...for lack of a better term. It took a breaker bar to loosen them. After lube my small Y-wrench worked fine. Also I have a Tusk 2 ton scissor jack. It was very difficult to lift the KRX with it, took all I had and I'm not a 98 lbs weakling! LOL! . Again it needed lubrication, but of course this collects dirt like crazy! I lubed all the hinge joints and the screw, works much better. But now I have to clean it and re-lube after every few days or I'm afraid all the dirt would bind it up too.any tips or suggestions to share from your first tire change experience?
