Re: Front end replacement 2wd. Anything to watch out for

Nut holding the coil spring in is one time use only. Same nut as the swing arm. I order a box, I think there is six in a box. worth it.

Make sure if you replace the ball joints put them back in by hand, not an impact, they get ruined if you hammer them too tight.
Use plenty of never seize.

replace the outer tie rod end even if it's good, it won't be once you whack on it with the hammer to separate it from the spindal
