Re: front suspension



I think it does need a special Mopar socket.  Anyone else know another use for it?.............................MO

Unless it takes a special socket , you can go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto and rent them. You find the kit you need, pay for it, take it home and keep it and use it as long as you like, and when you're through, take them back with your receipt and get a full refund. You cant beet free. It's a lot cheaper than having to but them.

I got my parts from Performance Suspension Technology (PST) .  That was EVERYTHING except the pitman.  More expensive than Rock Auto, but better stuff IMO.   For an old guy (like me), it's a bunch of work from jack stands.  I also did the steering chuck, and let me tell you getting the pitman arm off is a bitch.  Broke 4 pullers in the process.  Pitman might not be necessary for your situation though.  It was a winter job for the full suspension, another winter for the chuck, pitman and coupler rebuild. (a couple nights a week, couple hours on saturdays, my back won't allow a full assault... LOL )  Very worth it in the end.  If you have the time and patience do it yourself.   Figure on buying some tools to go with the parts.
