I am getting close to my 20K check up. I can do everything else that is needed on my list except the checking of the spokes. Is that something your avg Joe can do or do i need to take them someplace to have them do it? Does it really need to be done? How hard is it to do your self and what kind of equipment is needed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The more I can do on my own the less money I have to give the dealership. Doing my 15K, my own brakes, and tires (everything minus the mount and balance). I saved enough to make it worth the Harbor Freight lift i bought.
