So after sorting out my fuel issue. I will move to my next project.
Rebuilding the front suspension. I did shocks and the steering stuff not too long ago. I noticed a couple weeks ago that the upper control arm bushings looked bad to me.
So my plan is to replace the bushings and the ball joints. Energy suspension and moog ball joints.
Before anybody questions my reasoning. I replaced the springs and control arms on my sierra. The moog replacements didn't fit all that great which is why I chose this route. I had to hammer out the attachement points on the frame. I read online and apparently that was common so to avoid this I chose this route.
If the energy suspension make too much noise I will remove them later
When I did the sierra I used a 3 ton floor jack I also had to use my external spring compressors. I was a little nervous. It went ok.
I am looking at getting this compressor
I had energy suspension on my last car. I liked it. They did squeak some. But it was mainly from the sway bar bushings.
For the ball joints. I have a small 8 ton press, a ball joint press and access to a 20 ton press. So I should be fine there.
The springs concern me. I may rent the tool. Then once I find it works then buy it.
I have read the stickies and there seems to be two ways to do them. But most people seem to have problems with them.
