    well its been a busy day,
    Pats replaced the right rear brake cylinders that were leaking oil and cleaned and check the brakes over with adjustments to the hand brake cables.
    We just need to tighten the big nuts an replace the split pins and nip up the wheel nuts by hand to finish the rear off.
    The 4 upper an lower new german ball joints ,shockies an tie rod ends have arrived.The old ones were pretty much stuffed
    [​IMG]

    heres a pic showing some of the stuffed ball joints
    [​IMG]

    Ive removed the tie rod ends an the front drums an shockies ,so i can remove the spindles to get the old warn out ball joints pressed out an the new ones fitted.
    Pat showed me how to pull the front end down as ive never done it before!

    [​IMG]
    all striped down.Time to clean up the sway bar and brakes.

    Pat will take the spindles over to a mechanics to get the old ball joints pressed out and replaced with the new german ones early next week.
    t.b.c.

    Thats some nasty lookin ball joints you have there Chuckster.

    I cant believe Mat Drove around for a while on them - a wonder they werent picked up at Pink Slip time?

    Should drive real nice after this is all done!

    Dont forget to hand pump those shockies lots of times.

    Can't beleive I've only just stumbled on this thread. Hats off to whoever straightened that front end up Chuck. I would have chopped it off and started fresh but there was clearly no need for that looking at the results. Love it.

    Hi chuck, I thought I would go over this thread again while I do some more work to the 69. Too bad the Photobucket pics are gone now. You wouldn't happen to have the originals on your computer somewhere?
