Got the new trailing arms installed in about five hours. Amazingly, nothing
else broke in the process. Impact wrench, torque wrench, rust penetrant
(Kroil) and shop manual plus a good deal of muscle and common sense for the
stuff the manual doesn't tell you. Still need to do a wheel alignment. I
marked the outline of the trailing arm to chassis mounts with magic marker
in order to get the alignment close as possible after the swap. Will
probably do the front struts / strut mounts this fall. With the new trailing
arms, already drives much better. The rear struts were replaced last summer.
If anybody has need of the old arms, let me know. Once out, a machine shop
can press in new bushings fairly easily.
