Project time

My RL has about 156k on her so time for some love.
Replace front brakes
replace upper and lower control arms
replace inner and outer tie rods
replace cv axle

all on both sides. I was going to replace the tie rods then decided since it was going to be up in the air and apart i may as well do it all given the mileage.

Wish me luck.

Good luck! Do check engine mounts, mileage is about right where the replacement may be in order.

I've got a buddy of mine who will help, hopefully he can do one side and I'll do the other and get it knocked out in a day. I think next Saturday will be the garage day.

Something like that! It would be nice to have a "Build Thread" to see how your car has progressed!
