    Exclamation

    Words of wisdom: if you find the nuts on the tops of the bolts on the fronts rusted on, hunker in with plenty of alcohol cause they are a royal b-otch!!! I have pics if you want to see but cant post until I get home....
    PS-Spring compressors suck too, be very careful or you will find your way to the ER!

    thanks hawk-you're about a day late with that remark. I gave up battling the nut off and just took the shock to a shop who air-gunned it off in a matter of seconds.

    Right now i'm in dire need of new ball joints for the new upper a-arms...wish those had come with the new a-arms...really pissed about that actually.
