    I jacked it up from the center, but because of how the independent rear suspension droops down I had to do it in two stages. So I jacked up the rear and put it on jack stands, then added some blocks to the jack to get the extra height to get it up on the Wheel Cribs. Did the reverse to get it back down.

    I'm not an organic chemist but from what I recall from engineering school - there are cases where exposure to air/water causes some of the items to break down. when they do, the viscosity or the anti-corrosion compounds will start to fail. Given time you'll have acids in the mix or additional water - lack of protection etc etc.

    thus the requirement for changing it out. it would appear the oil being used in not synthetic based - ie man made polymers. Like Penzoil platinum or Amsoil etc.
