    So the prius is now at 367,000 miles and in need of a little love.

    The start of this process is the rear shocks as 1 has been leaking for about 5 years and has the car acting up a little on the bigger bumps. I got some cheaper complete units so I did not need a spring compressor.

    Job went ok until the very last bolt... changed the way I held the hammer drill and inadvertently changed the direction from undo to do up... sadness.

    had to pay a mechanic that could get the rounded head bolt out ($124) and job complete.

    Next is the front shocks and ball joints.
    I also have 5 battery cells to work over the HV battery once I can get the torque pro to work.
