Hello!

Since I had the Trailing Arms out for rebuilding I decided to pull the spring and crossmember and differential also.  The spring was worn and caused wear to the ends of the stub axles inside the case.  The doughnuts were not severely worn but I am having those replaced at this time as well as having the differential rebuilt.  The halfshafts and drive shaft are all getting new u-joints and refinished as well as the strut rods and bushings.

I needed the Harbor Freight Hydraulic Ram to loosen the doughnuts from the frame.  No way a pry bar was going to do the job on this car!

Harbor Freight tool. A lifesaver at making the crossmember removal the easiest, at least for my car.
