Lots of work coming next weekend

Postby HDMike5810 » Sat Feb 20, 2016 10:20 pm

Got in everything needed for completely fresh suspension. Replacing all upper and lower control arms, ball joints, bushings, shocks, springs, complete hub assemblies, upgraded heavy duty half shafts, new rotors/pads/calipers, tie rods, idler arm, pitman arm, sway bar links and bushings. All started with the seized tie rod sleeve and not able to align it. I'm the type to hit things with the big stick and rebuild all the takeoffs and keep them as spares (for all possible parts, some just get tossed). It will be ready for the trips I'm putting together. Still undecided on the tire change, but did decide to add a rear winch.

I got everything for $5980 with shipping. Some pieces got package deals and some free shipping. As far as labor, the last time it took four of us about 14 hours.

Amazed, we got it sorted in under 12 hours and did a decent alignment. Getting a full alignment Monday, but I'm sure it's not far off. Exhaust and hitting the rack...
