Special Tools C-594 & C-608

Post by Specialdeluxe » Fri Sep 26th, 2008 11:33

Gotta love the special tools. Lets take a look at the two for the front suspension.

From what I've read in the manual it looks like the purpose of these is to spread the arms 1/16th of an inch so that when the tool is removed the proper pressure is applied to the threads. To keep the bars centered and not rotating as the bushings are threaded on.

Another thing I have found out is that NOS control arms are not threaded. In figure 18, oil is applied as the hardened steel bushing cuts it's own threads into the control arm.

Guess what I get to do. :shock:

Well I did it. Wasn't fun at the time but I think it will be one of the things I'll look back on and say, "remember when we had to cut the threads in the control arms?" :hammer:
