Re: Front/Rear Suspension Rebuild
First - MFortie, I am sorry to not reply to your message sooner. Work and family have been taking up all of my time. Please PM me as I would sure like to meet!
Second - I was finally able to get the car back together this past week! What a learning experience! There was lots of sweat, more cussing and some blood involved, but she's back together and on the road again!
Thanks to all for your help/info/opinions, every single response assisted with the work performed.
I took it to the alignment shop first thing Friday morning. A.J., another big help with the rebuild, looked everything over and only found one mistake. I forgot to put the cotter pin in the driver's side upper spindle nut. Other than that, everything was put together properly.
I have taken her for a couple short [less than 20 miles] test drives and the difference is night and day! None of the tires are rubbing anymore, the differential doesn't 'twist' under acceleration, the steering is firm and responsive. It rides nice, tracks straight and doesn't pull in either direction. To say that I am pleased would be an understatement!
Again, thanks to all for all the help! I am sure that I will have more questions in the future. Who knows, maybe one day I will be able to help someone!
