U-joint and Front Track bar
« on: April 26, 2015, 04:15:50 PM »
hello all...
I'm thinking I can do this :o but am looking for some help or a tutor to bail me out if I screw up. I have what I need (I think) as far as tools and such. And if I can do it as easy as Gary and Mike on the trail it should be no problem.....right? So if food , beer or a few bucks is worth it to ya......let me know.....
See what happens when Mike's out of commission....gotta do things yourself...  ;D
