Ok, everyone, the long slow rebuild of my front suspension
is bearing fruit. I have now installed new swing arm
bushings, new upper and lower ball joints, dust covers on
the tie rod ends, and new coil springs.
There are lots of nice new shiny bolts heads and nuts
showing and I painted the swing arms a tasteful John Deere
green to impress who ever in my wildest imagination might
look under the front of my car someday.
It is upside down right now, so I will focus on the wheel
bearings, hubs and rotors for now, and install the nice new
shocks when it gets flipped over and upright.
The sway bar can wait until the thing is installed in the
Ref. 420 front end going into the 3.8S. Functional power
steering unit and 3 pot calipers. Not to mention the
benefit of the learning experience.
