RE: front suspension



The UCA bushings can be done in a large vice also.  When I did ’62 front suspension – had good ol’ NAPA do the LCA press work – most still have a machine shop in the back.......... 

 

My parts list – the eccentric bushings and cam bolts are both must haves IMHO:

 

Torsion bars - .92 dia - Mopar Performance P5249157 (.88 dia stock) 

- Idler/pitman/tie rods

- Torsion bar adjusters/seals/clips

- LCA bushings & pivot shafts

– Bump stops upper & lower

- Ball joints

- Strut rod bushings Moog K7039

- UCA (A-arm) cam bolts Moog 8243A

- (UCA Bushings Moog K408)

- Eccentric UCA bushings Moog K7103

I'll guess the most of the $1200.- is labor 

If you have the time, and proper wrenches, you can do it yourself 

You'll need a hydraulic hand)press for the upper control arm bushings

 

When you follow the prescription, and while busy a lot becomes clear

Here is a picture of the lower ball joint from Rock Auto.

I took my 63 to the shop today for a front end alignment.  I had turned up the torsion bars for  more ground clearance.  Well they told me I need new ball joints upper and lower and new tie rod ends, plus a radius arm bushing (?).  They estimated the job at $1200.  I'm thinking I can do most of the work myself and save $$$$.  I've priced the parts on Rock Auto and they are probably less than $200.  Any pitfalls in doing this work?
