Suspension Overview / Rebuild
I read the stickey " what to check if you suspension is clunking" .
My 97 t-bird with 95k miles on it is due for a front end rebuild. I've replaced both front sway bar links and I think that one of them is going out again due to a crummy replacement part.
Has anyone come up with a list of things to replace, costs, and best part and place to purchase them from? I'd hate to miss some $20 part and still have problems or purchase another crummy aftermarket part just to have it fail in 10k miles again!
Seems like some aftermarket parts are better than others and some parts need to be replaced with the ford parts?
Also does anyone know the correct torque settings for the front end? Maybe a chilton or hayes manual would have these?
Is it common for the boots on the uca's to "rot" away?
Thanks for any and all help!
