Front beam threaded zert insert plugs   Price: $1/pr + postage
If you have a standard or shortened front beam and plan to use a standard VW-type tow bar, your zerts may be in the way and/or possibly get sheared off during transport by a shifting tow bar. Can be used for standard length tow bars as well.

If you're talented with an easy-out (I'm not, actually broke one off once), you likely won't need these. If you're like me, you likely will...

These M8x1.25x6mm threaded plugs use a 4mm hex wrench and can be used to replace the zerts if you are planning to tow or might have to get towed in the future. I installed a pair in my lower beam, flush to the beam surface, using three (3) wraps of Teflon tape to hold them firmly in place, and keep the zerts in a ziplock in my glove compartment. They are too short to interfere with internal beam parts. When I need to grease the front end, I swap them out and then re-install them.

These will work only with beam zert holes threaded to M8x1.25!

Sold as $1/pair + postage/shipping.

Please ask any questions before purchasing, as all sales are final. Items are "AS IS". No returns/refunds. Will Accept Paypal or Cash only.
