Thanks!!!!! I just finished mine.......remember to apply proper torque values!!!!! After all, it is, your steering componants you are talking about here!!! Fortunatly, all of these componants have castle nuts that receive a cotter pin for safety.
Great write up how to. I wanted to swap in new springs. I picked up some 5610's from the zone from recommends here. Figured i could use my coil spring compressor i bought a couple of years ago fom H Freight. No go i couldn't get the compressor in there to compress them so i hooked a chain up to it around the spring and lower arm. Put pressure on it and loosened bolts. back one was no problem but front will hit the steering arm. I quit because i really need it higher up to drop the arm enough. Looking at bushings and body mounts you can really tell i turned over the speedo twice already with no new bushings. So my new spring project is looking to be a full suspension bushing overhaul. doh Now poly or rubber? questions questions. Time to join membership have a good evening. Kent
edit: I just did search on coil spring compressors and i actually have a strut coil spring compressor. Explains the PIA factor. Heading to the zone and rent one of theirs and see how bad my bushings actually are. I want it back together. Kent
