d) Suspension Resto (front end)

Believe it or not, this thing still rolled.  After disassembly, all of the bearings and bushings were replaced.  The base components were sandblasted and re-painted.  The brake callipers were rebuilt with new pistons however the brake housings were re-used as were the coil springs.

The following pictures are of the rebuild & restored front suspension including the steering mount.  When completed it is as good as new, actually better since it is painted.

Complete Front End.  Showing the restored Steering rack & Rod-end bearings.  The springs were tough to get back in.  It required an assortment of spring compressors.  New shocks and steering rack bushings & seals complete the job.  I will be replacing the standard rotors with Vented / Slotted rotors as soon as they arrive.
