Hello all
I was asking is there a good way to clean shocks/under carriage? My shocks are black, they didn't come black, i tried getting purple power leaving on for 5 minutes, and then pressure washing, didn't help much. Any other ideas?

Where would I find this?

Jma20a 05-11-2009 03:37 PM

any home depot or hardware store should have it

spanky 05-11-2009 03:39 PM

any grocery store as well

Bignuke 05-11-2009 04:13 PM

Ok. Will it take off the black whenever I spray it on there or do I have to pressure wash it too?

spray it on let it soak, then you should be able to wipe it off with an old rag. Oven cleaner is pretty strong I recommend not breathing any in also, lol. It will choke you.

i usually let it soak for a few minutes, and spray it off with the hose.

yeah man, dont breath that shit in either! i was cleaning my bbq the other day with some oven cleaner, and holy crap that stuff doesnt agree with your lungs!

Bignuke 05-11-2009 06:54 PM

ok then...heres what you do. Unbolt & remove all four shocks, Spray them generously with the oven cleaner. Put on cookie sheet and stick in oven on Auto Clean for about an hour. Should be good as new. Just make sure you remove the rubber bushings, they may melt.


spanky 05-11-2009 09:19 PM

dude! id pay to see that.. when the shocks explode under the heat/pressure and shoot thru the oven !

Bignuke 05-11-2009 09:46 PM

...jerks. lol
