What to do...
hello boys and girls
Finally got a straight answer as to what the Fairmont needs in the front end. Radius rod bushes (or inner control arm bushes i think) are shagged, both inner and outer. Have had a Pedders special quote of 210 supplied and fitted. 170 from another decent suspension shop
120 including wheel alignment to remove my front struts and adjust the shocks (koni reds)
And a possible sticking brake caliper. 190 bucks to overhaul the front pair (wont do one cause of the ABS, have to have the pair done) and another 55 each side to machine the disks. Im not so sure about this one the car doesnt pull to the left at all...
Now, im in two minds as to what to do. I have no tools to do any of this work myself. I cant say I have ever tried doing this work myself. But after having worked the past few months on stuff totally foreign and reading lots of manuals on how to go about things, and reading thru my Gregories manual, i reckon i could give it a shot. The problem is I'll have to guess as to exactly what tools im going to need, and im not going to have the car available to go get stuff I have forgotten. Or if i stuff it all up, i wont be able to really move the bastard.
Are the bushes im talking about press fit? if not, i should be able to tackle that one easily enough, especially with some FF expertise :) The front struts are more of a concern due to the shims in my camber kit. But on 2nd thoughts, I'll need a wheel aligment anyway so that wont matter....hmmm.
So, who reckons i should give it a go myself? Wanting to hear from dudes who have done this before...and if anyone can give me a more definate way to go about it (in regards to tools, what i should undo first, pitfalls etc) i would be most appreciative.
Oh and yea, almost forgot. Is it wise to try overhauling my calipers myself assuming the are binding and the piston might be a bit of a biatch to get back in???????
