Anyone on here ever done a front end re-build?

I'm going to assume you mean the suspension?

I haven't, but I will be soon enough, about 5 weeks. new bushings, springs, shocks. I wonder if it's possible to pool resources somehow, at least in the knowledge dept.

anyhow see ya, and let us know what you come up with with Mark tomorrow evening -

take care,

I have all the parts sitting in my apartment - shocks, lower control arms, strut rod bushings, sway bar bushings, steering rack bushings. My upper control arms and springs are already upgraded. I'm just waiting for carparts.com to get my damn rear shocks here so I can put it all in. Those are supposed to ship on the 27th, but I don't have a free weekend to do the work until maybe June 23/24.

My only concern is that I think I'll need some bigger wrenches - there are a few really big bolts. Plus I have to find a place to "unload" my springs from the old shocks. I don't want to do that myself...
