wd-40 has water in it though, which is wierd. P Blaster is the way to go.

By the way Evan. Clean off all the rust then apply a lot of wax to it. I dont know how hot is your hot jus make sure the wax wont melt off of course.

just get some grease, like wheel bearing grease, and just coat them in a thin coating of it and leave em, it'll last as long as they sit.

^+1. Just make sure that you wipe down the shafts before you grease em so you dont trap all that gunk on the shafts only to install them back in the housing and then have gunk in your housing

wd40 works. I used it on the rotors on my axles and it works just fine.

Theres what, 90 something % water inside me but I don't rust??

wd40 works, and its cheaper than pb-blaster. Or just coat it in gear-oil, which mine have all over them anyways lol.

That's because you were too stupid to take bio, stupid. Ask yourself, why is your blood red when its exposed to the air.
