Upper Ball Joints

Front suspension ball joints arrived and have been attached to the upper control arms.

We Need More Tools, Captain!

Mike had to buy a press machine in order to work on the wheel bearings, but it wasn’t quite the right height, so he extended the legs with metal bars that he cut with the saw…see the very exciting Sawing in the Dark video! We also received two new CV Drive Axles today. Mike only needs the end pieces, so he’ll be removing them. It was cheaper to purchase brand new completed axles than to purchase just the used end bits from an old Subaru, so he’ll hack off what he needs and toss the rest.

Sawing In The Dark

Mike’s shop press needed to be taller, so he made new legs for it…outside, in the middle of the night, and in the dark (don’t try this at home, kids)!
