gotta run, but strongly suggest finding a website of owners of the same vehicle, to get part #'s, tips, sob stories etc,.
Best of luck

Thanks.

I'm not flying completely blind. I have the hayes manual for it.

My main concern is getting this shite apart. This truck has been horribly difficult to work on in the past due to bolts that are froze up or were horribly over tightened.

I'll definitely be going with moog then. Money is certainly a factor here. Otherwise I'd be paying somebody to do this shite.

$450 for all moog parts

Better than the car doctor's quoted $1800 though
