Hi guys, nothing new or exciting to report ... I left the wheel carriers off at my mechanic's a few days ago but he hasn't had time to get them done. I told him it wasn't a rush since I have the other car to drive and he's got pretty high volume right now. I shouldn't have been so honest, I really, really want them back so I can start putting the car back together.
The only thing that isn't done is the spring link bushings (the inside ones ... my indy offered to throw the carrier bearings in while he had the carriers) ... I cannot get them out and I'm considering taking them to the mechanic too to press them in and out. I made a tool out of a bolt, washers and a piece of pipe but the bolt snapped in half. Also tried using the shop press and the piece of pipe, but the link just slipped off the pipe sideways. Maybe if I torch them a bit it will help. Other suggestions?
