    Everything but the driveshaft.
    My kind of deal. Then I don't feel bad about shooting one with a parts cannon in the first six months.

    Yep, no sense in chancing a crushed power steering line or damaged rack because the jack was off a little bit.

    That's very true!
    Gotta do the rack bushings this weekend, and sway bar if they get here in time. Going to be fun, it was already 81% humidity at 7 this morning.

    I figure a few hundred in fluids and parts would make it worthwhile for such a comfortable commuter car. The fact that parts are cheap and available and its easy to work on made it an easy sell for me :)

    I also want to get rid of the sweet purple tint and redo that so it stays cooler

    Glad its coming along... Let me know if you run into any issues.

    Having something similar to this, really helped get those rack bushings out -

    Also this is a good one to have (not for the rack bushings but for the outer ties, LBJ's, etc)-

    Some say leave it some say take it off. Anyone in the know say jack from the LCA because it’s easier to get the truck higher that way lol

    I hate to admit it, but after doing the rack bushings I ended up returning the cartman kit. Eventually I ended up re-ordering and went with the larger Powerbuilt 23 piece kit when I did the upper ball joints. Having that kit made getting that ball joint pressed out on the vehicle so much easier. Sure, had to get creative with the adapters but it worked.

    I just ordered the OTC kit yesterday. I was going to rent some stuff from OReillys too after watching Timmy’s video, seemed handy. I hate having to stop and run out mid-project.

    my thinking as well. I'd rather have them sitting waiting for the next project than have to run around to various stores trying to rent them

    Ive jacked from the LCA and never have a issue. Ive also just jacked off any strong looking cross member under the truck no issue.

    If you goto a Mexican tire show they use 4 jacks on the frame to lift it up. And sometimes they only use 3 jacks
