Just let me know Jeff.... I am in Covina during the day....Well it kind of goes against the premise I mentally started with - that this would be a writeup of how to do it yourself - but I think I'm going to have to have someone else do this part, and I do want to get the job finished before I go back to school next week.
Where will you be, and what kind of beer do you like? :thumbup
Given the option, I'd rather drive a little and pay someone I know and trust with beer or something than give my money to someone I don't know; builds better karma all 'round. (Lord knows I can use some of that!)Don't need no stinkin vise.
My impact gun does it just fine.
Iolaus. Take your knuckles and tools to the closest mechanic shop and see how much they'd charge ya to change em out. Should only take any competent mechanic with the tool you rented and their impact gun roughly 5 - 10 minutes to do.
no, install it and top it up after you are done
Wait a minute, by "nominally," are you saying off the truck? ...or install the knuckle finger tight, grease it up, then torque it down?I nomally install the cap and start pumping grease in...you will see the cap start to buldge when its full.
Probably.Steve can be such a PITA about stuff, but this is where I will always state the same thing:
I actually prefer their lifetime series non-greasable ujoints for driveshafts as well.
Torque NOTHING until you have your camber specs where you want them. Are you needing info. here Jeff?
I don't know, were you having any unsual tire wear issues? Were the tires looking nice and strait vertically? NOW is the time to make changes if you have adjustable upper BJ bushings.Probably.
They are exactly where they were when I took the knuckles off; shouldn't that be fine?
