Wish I wasn't in such a hurry to do mine and could have painted everything. Hit the tie rods and center link too. They start rusting pretty quick. Looks real good, nice job.

Little darker blue and they would look like my old Jim Connor Racing 2 stage bars I had,

Now they look like OEM oil filter color ! LOL

They do match the pen oil filter color. Maybe deep down that's why I did it. Lol.

Sorry about the huge pics.

Started cleaning up the spindles. I took some emery cloth to the seal and bearing surfaces to get rid of a tiny ridge formed by years and tons of miles. Today I am going to spray them down and tape them up so I can paint at work while on lunch.

It's starting to go back together. Once the lower arms are done it will be a quick assembly.


*ider arm screw stripped out so I need to find a replacement.
**Bump stops have been removed to make way for Daystar poly-progressive stops.





This week's homework is painting the lower control arms. I sandblasted them on Friday.


Also starting to rebuild the front hubs. New bearings, races and seals.

Thermostat housing appears to be leaking coolant slowly...
Broke off both screws holding the distributor cap on. It does have a Hitachi system, not the Mitsubishi. These trucks could come with either stock. Only way to know it to look at the cap.

Based on how this truck ran and stumbled at times combined with the fact the cap and rotor both had NISSAN embossed in them tells me there is a good chance the cap/rotor and wires are the original to the truck with over 200,000 miles on them...hard to believe but the shocks were original so I can only assume the ignition is original too. Meaning nothing was ever done to this truck till I took ownership LOL!

I filmed the tenth YouTube episode live right in the shop just talking about the truck and where I am at on it. Had a couple viewers and that was cool.

So time to get cracking on my homework.

Ordered the wrong lower ball joints I found out. Sucks.
Started taking the front hubs apart for some reconditioning. Replacing bearings, races and seals. That's about it.
