No pictures,unless you want pics of GREASY HANDS!! Just finished tearing down the entire front suspension,installing new upper and lower A arm bushings and reinstalling it all. What a PIA!! Love getting those upper A arm mounting bolt nuts in there.One custom bent Crapsman wrench and a little tape later they are in. Getting the caps right are fun too. Did I mention I hate spring compressors? All in all a good day of progress. Next I can run the brake lines and drop in the motor and trans.That will help balance the old girl on the lift.She is a bit tail heavy without the dog house and motor/trans up front!

I can't believe you were able to do the whole thing in a day. Admittedly, I'm a spaz, but it took me the better part of three weekends and the sacrifice of numerous tools. And for every turn of the spring compressor I felt I ought to say a Hail Mary.
