If your going to swap to the 93+ spindles, you will need different sway bar end links, that is the only difference.

Most car washes here do not allow you to do undercarriages, or even muddy vehicles. They have signs that say 30 dollar environmental fee for excessively dirty or washing anything that leaves grease, oil, or other contaminates. I haven't used a car wash in 20 years.

I have a Harbor Freight electric power washer (the low end one) and it did fine. I did scrape as much as I could so I wouldn't have a greasy mess left on the ground, and sprayed it all down with degreaser, and caught as much of the water as possible to dump elsewhere.

I had the heads off to do head gaskets, and got sick of getting filthy touching them, and pressure washed them. The machine shop I took them to for surfacing and valve seal replacement said that since they have been tanked already they wouldn't do it. I told them I wanted them tanked, as I just sprayed them off with a cheesy pressure washer, and they didn't believe me (it didn't have the dull etched tanked look, but even 90% of the carbon was gone).
