Just wondering now.

I just posted about my brake job and the swap I plan on my 68. Now it's got me thinking.

I want to swap out my drum parts on the 68 for the disc parts on my 77. I've done the reading up on the swap and think I pretty much know where I'm going there. I'm just curious if it would make the job easier to remove the fenders. Would the extra room make it easier, or would I just be inviting more headaches?

Actually, I might just answer my own question right here...

Drop the entire I-Beam assembly and do it on the bench, right? I need to replace all the bushings and whatnot anyway.

Hey thanks for the advice everyone!

Ok, now I'm talking to myself...

Move along, nothing to see here.

I had a 1989 F-150 and I took the front fenders off to do alittle bit of body work.and they were a real pain in th a** to put back on and line up.It might just be easier to do with them on.

You may want that I-beam on the truck too,so it will not try to get away from you when you work on the kingpins.
