    It depends on how much “free all” you are presoaking the nuts and bolts with. It shouldn’t be too bad. When I did mine I had to stop mid day because I couldn’t get the bushings out and the castor correction bushings in. As previously mentioned I had to have @OTRAMM do that part. But I don’t remember it being too crazy. I was doing it all solo so it was a pain at some parts with no lift to use. With any help you will get it done for an early supper I bet.

    I’m jonesing to do mine as well.

    *related* I’m going to run sans front sway bar on wheeling trips. Remove completely for a trip instead of messing with discos.

    I would give it 2 days minimum, no spring compressor needed as long as you have a good tall jack and tall jack stands.

    Didn't get this done.... Oops!

    Scheduling a date, Now.

    January 5th, 6th.

    I will be at my shop on January 5th at 2pm. I have to work that morning.

    I will have everything all set and ready to go. And will probably already be under her.

    I f I can get the lift to help, all that much better. But not planning on it.

    So just stop by and have a drink, eat some pizza and grab a wrench.

    I an fairly sober, so I will most likely only have Diet Coke. All else is going to be BYOB.


    Would like to get this done so it can be shook down before the February trip.

    Thank you in advance for any help and all your support.

    Confirming that I'm good for tomorrow. Possibly Sunday, too. See you at 2pm unless I hear otherwise. Call or text is better than relying on MUD for that.
