Rebuilding front end,where do I start? Help!!
Got the Disc brakes and front end kit for my 72 Demon going to try it all at once. Question is where do I start. Besides the obvious taking the old hubs and stuff off,what about the front end,especially the lower control arm and torsion bars? Do I need to take off or loosen? Is there a how to in tech? Don't want to screw up and have to buy more parts, so any help greatly appreciated.
First get a manual.You can screw up a lot of things.It all depends on what you are going to replace in the front.Just replacing tie rods, ball joints, upper and lower bushings.what are you replacing? Rocky
Got the Polygraphite kit from PST. Upper and Lower ball joints,inner and outer tie rod ends,upper and lower control arm bushings,the whole deal.
Would one of the haynes manuals cover that or is there a better manual?
Honestly the only thing I needed the manual for was trying to figure out how the torsion bars come out.
You can do it with out one. It just depends on how good you are with puzzles.
First thing I would do is put it up on stands some place it isn't going to have to move for a while.
then back off the torsion bar adjustment all the way till they are loose.
