Well something knocked me out of commission for about 2 weeks. But finally back at it. Got all of the the front suspension removed. Will do the same seal treatment to areas I won't be able to access once the suspension is back in. I plan on re-using the stock spindles and stock sway bar - its pretty hefty. Going with tubular control arms, new tie rods, idler, center link, rotor. Thinking I may just have the steering gearbox rebuilt. Maybe spring for some wilwood calipers...

Thanks Slysnake. Appreciate that. I can't believe how restless I get when I can't work on the thing. It's so consuming.
