I finnaly got around to installing both the lower and upper control arms. The install went fairly smooth. While the parts were out i took the chance to clean them up and por-15 them. The guy that pressed in my bushings (del-a-lum) said they were the tuffest bushings he ever had to press in
I have run into a problem today when trying to install my spindles. I got the spring in (which was fairly easy with air tools) and then i put the spindle on the lower balljoint with no problem. The problem came when i tried to put the upper balljoin into the spindle. The balljoint was too big for me to slide through the spindle. Whats wronge? The upper arms and balljoints im using is part# 15-0809-5R (the upper arms) and part# 40-3200 (for the balljoints)
Did i get the wrong ball joints? Perhaps they got the invoice right, but sent me the wrong parts. How can i identify the ubmachine arms and balljoints as the correct ones for the part numbers i ordered?
Or perhaps my spindle is wrong? The casting number on the right hand spindle is 369056-RH and the left hand is 369055-LH. Where can i identify these spindles using these casting numbers?
