Those aftermarket gears are pretty dicey. Growing up, I hot-rodded Chevys and learned the same lesson you did. For me the answer was easy0 go to the dealer and buy a new GM gear. They hold up great! Being a Buford guy, I'm not too sure where to sug

It's not the same old TEFLON Slick 50 from the 90's attempting to turn your oil pan into a frying pan. By the early 2000's Quaker State/SOPUS transitioned Slick 50 into an oil additive product chocked full of zinc and actual detergents I think. It

I'd pick an oil that did not require the use of Slick 50. Oil alone should be enough to do the job.

I've had this problem as well in my 20 year old VW Golf. Over time the rubber degrades the heating and cooling cycles contribute to this issue. I wouldn't risk applying anything to it as long as it doesn't tear. Maybe use a bit of synthetic oil on it

New Balance specializes in wide shoes. A couple of there top executives were really big people with wide feet so based on their looks the wide shoes might be a special interest item for them. High tops.
