Front suspension rebuild

Rebuilding the front suspension is quite a job. Releasing the springs is especially nervewrecking. It's all pretty straight forward but it's worth taking notes which screw goes where, and especially where which washer goes.

Pretty rusty.

Brake discs will have to go as well.

The front hubs come off a lot easier than the rear ones.

Flash forward. Almost everything has been removed on one side. This will be covered in more detail in a following post. I did this side by side so I'd have a reference for rebuilding.

Some cleaning with various wire brushes and a coat of rust-inhibiting paint.

My axle stands are all used up so I tied the suspension to a chair.
The SNG barratt front suspension rebuild kit contains new ball joints as well, as you may have noticed.
