need help with rebuilding front end and finding a kit and some answers please
who sells a front end rebuil kit for the excursion. 04 4x4diesel eddie bauer
my front end guy told me the following needs to be done:
upper ball joints
lower ball joints
2 sway bar links
inner tie rod
center link-outer tie rod
outter tie rod
front shocks(ive already done this)
and 3 seals
now comes the questions.
the 2 sway bar links do they come whole or can i just replce the bushings in the links?
on the drag link can i just replace the greaseable bushing on the end or do i have to replace the whole thing?
then the sway bar i am sure it needs new bushings. i do know that all of these parts do need changing. all the rubber is deteriorated and ect. but i wouldnt think the center link and sway bar links would have to be replaced because they are in good shape just the bushings are worn.
only noise i have is when i take off from a dead stop it makes a clunk. then when i come to a complete stop. any ideas??
i am really having a pita trying to find a kit to do this. i plan to do this myself with the help of a friend. are there any other parts that i will need to replace in the process such as seals or something like that due to having to pull the hubs to do the ball joints? any tips would greatly be appreciated!! if someone has any reference pictures that would be awesome and a huge help!!!!!!!!
