I just got a front end rebuild kit from PST and was wandering if anybody has installed the kit before and if there is any trick that I should know about before I rip this pony down. This part of my ongoing project also involves replacing the coil springs and rear leaf springs with the Hi Lift units from JC Whitney. Im also adding the 5 lug rotors from Heidts and a 5 lug rear end from a 74 Maverick. I've measured everything between the two rear ends and everything appears to be the same except the rear brakes are larger.

I've got a modern duece coupe with a 5.0 mill and can stomp a firebird like its standing still.... I'm sure you've heard the rest before

The urethane bushings squeek a bit. I think I've seen some that come with fittings so you can grease 'em (you have to use vaseline?).... I have a similar setup on my front end - heavier sway bar, urethane bushings (squeak, squeek), higher rate coils - lower front 1"..... I like it. Had my mechanic install it, though.

I don't know about jc whitny parts... the front springs store a lot of energy. use a spring compresser and/or a safety chain. i think some "II's" the books will say to just drop the control arm until the tension is released, take a heavy chain and lay around several coils this will stop the spring from flying too far if it gets loose. if you arn't sure take deke's advice have a pro from a reputable shop install them.
