Front strut rod bushings / shocks / LCA
As a note - it's a lot easier if you do all three at one time.
I just got through:
a) Replacing the AC Delco front strut rod bushings with Genuine Ford parts,
b) Installing some 66K mile ARC shocks to replace the 130+Kmile ones that I had, and
c) installing both LCAs (the passenger side had a bad boot, so I did both, since it'll take a new alignment - and I'm too cheap to pay for two if I can get it done with one.)
An all day affair for me.
Unrelated: The screw that holds the brake hose bracket on the car is a M8-1.25 x 15mm screw. A x20mm will fit just fine. And if you spend over 2 minutes looking for it in the grass, you probably ought to just buy a new one and replace the old one.
