Lulz, I'm 2 hours in today on the RF corner and I can't get the shock/spring combo out of the upper A-arm. End link on this side was ok(-ish) and upper balljoint is loose. It might be that I haven't had a good night's sleep in weeks or my mechanical retardation

Tried that. Long bolt is practically welded in there for life. It's not going anywhere.

Don't know why anyone would do anything other than long bolt.

Get a longer lever and some Kroil.

That kind of made it worse, actually. She didn't seem like an old dog...





I know this is a cat forum, and I've never even fessed up to dog ownership before today, I just thought I'd share.
I's sorry to hear that, Joe.
I'm a dog owner, too. (Well, I do not "own" them. We live together.)

Cats and dogs can coexist under the same roof.

It's been soakin in oil since last sunday, no dice. Long bolt never worked for me, balljoints always popped loose in 4 smacks of the BFH.

Oh well, shock came out, swapped the spring and it's all buttoned up now. Only thing left is do drivers side and cut off the old endlink that has fused to both the lower arm and swaybar. Such joy

I just called the police. I didn't get assaulted and they didn't shoot my dog but they also weren't helpful.

Just looked it up. Never tried unbolting the hub from the lower arm, might as well give that a try. I failed at step 2 though, that endlink wasn't going anywhere. Time for

From the Nature is Weird file, I present Cymothoa exigua, or the tongue-eating louse:





This parasite enters a fish through the gills, and then attaches itself at the base of the fish's tongue. Once anchored, it extracts blood through its claws, eventually causing the tongue to atrophy from lack of blood. After the tongue rots away and falls off, the parasite then replaces the fish's tongue by attaching its own body to the muscles of the tongue stub. Subsequent to this, the parasite actually functions as a sort of prosthetic tongue, allowing the fish to feed normally while continuing to feast on its blood.

Finally pulled the trigger to get a second supercharger.
Got a deal on a good used unit, and thought it would be wise to have a spare since these things are getting harder and harder to come by.
Not a whole lot of support over here, gotta think long term.
