Hey all

I am doing all the bushes in the front end this weekend including;

-Ball joints upper and lower
-Tie rod ends
-Inner control arm bushes
-Outer control arm bushes
-Strut bar to control arm bushes
-Strut bar to chassis bushes

There is no need to do the Sway Bar to chassis rubber or Sway Bar link rubber because I did them last weekend also inner steering rack ends. I will be getting my local to press Ball joints in and out $33 Dollars a side.

Question.
Is there any thing I have forgotten?
Anything I need to know from people experiences?
Anyone know what bushes if any have to be pressed in and out?

Your new inner lower control arm bush is press fit.
I would recommend a Pedders rubber (with steel spacer) bush here.
If you buy the ball joints from pedders, they will press them into loose uprights for free.
I did the suspension on this car...
