Thanks a million for posting. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a million.

We should have a "DIY Video" thread for all different procedures so us non mechanical wannabe mechanics can determine if we're up to the task.

Good information in his videos ^^^ but the unsteady wandering camera makes me dizzy and seasick. I had to stop watching.

Buy the guy a gimbal!

Thanks. Not sure yet as I've still got to do the other side. Then on to the radius rods!

Great video!

I did the same procedure last summer. Your bolts came out fairly easily and looked good. I had to cut them out with a reciprocating saw.
