thumbs up for sure

Drove mine 12+ hours ~800 miles without any issues. My dad took this pic of my truck while following me near Spanish Fort, Al.

Banged out the bushing shells in the rear trailing arms, panhard bar and a frame. Holy balls was it annoying.

When I did my fronts, *literally* burned out the old bushings with a torch (they catch on their own after awhile), then carefully sawzall'd the metal bushing sleeve, and drifted out the metal sleeve. Then slapped the polys in and was good to go.

This is exactly what I've been doing. My truck is just rusty fused mess when it comes to this stuff.

Getting get rubber out takes 5 min, the shell is 45min of wailing


Feel like coming to help lol.

Also for anyone reference a cable operated come along is a great for getting thoes radius/trailing arms in place

For getting the shells out after burning, get a chisel or punch and go round one side with chisel/ bend the shell into the centre then with a good size socket give it a good thump, and out it pops, 5 minutes tops each. Saves hacksawing.

If you are fitting polybushes do not any use force getting the arms to fit the axle, just do a lot of wiggling with something to take the weight. Lots of soap as well. If you force them in you WILL tear the outer edges off.

I wish this worked for me, this is how I removd them from numerous e30s, Broncos, ect

This truck just want to keep the shells. I've been peeling chunks of the shells out with the chisel it's backbreaking compared to. Any other vehicles I've owned


I sold my shop press a year ago :/ regrets lol

So the Italian company that I purchased my ex-mil 1989 2 door 110 from fudged a few things to make the truck seem nicer than it actually was. One of those things was the snorkel. I knew after about 2 hours of owning it that the thing was fake. First off, I have a 2.5 petrol, so it's on the wrong side. Second of all, its not hooked up to anything at all. Not even cut through the fender, just bolted right onto the outside of it! After 6 months of not caring, I damaged it out on a trail and lost the top of it so I figured it was about time to fix it. A trip to the hardware store and about 30 minutes of work later, I have a 100% functional snorkel intake! Only thing I need to complete it is the breather tip thing that goes on top, coming in the mail in a week or so...

Let me know what you think!

Thanks!

Did it basically in 3 days, had 2 days of down time because I was waiting for parts... But there was 3 days of actual work. Really straight forward job.. Building the radiator frame was the "hardest" part
