I had to lift bird higher first attempt didn't fare so well. I have been at it all day and this car is the last to get over to the property , that swaybar put a big hurt on me, (and today my legs feel the pain) But I had in my mind to get all done that day, so all was left is to tow it home. and a BIG thanks to Dave Dare who with a emergency call for Help , Dave put my wheel hub on and help find missing washer , I was so fazzled and stove-up, Dave help calm me and we found the part we needed . Yay made my day. I know it sounds simple to those who are familiar with wheel bearings and what could be hard about putting on one suspension bar, well let me tell you, I ask that bar the same question? we went at it "mano a mano" . and today my body is asking me are you sure you won. my legs feel like I climb the stairs all day. haha.

Well done Randy and great that Dave can help you.

You remind me of myself with all that thrashing around and huffing an grunting, ah the delights of getting older!!

Oh and your 'workshop' is not that dissimilar to mine - but I guess is yours will be warmer.

" and today my body is asking me are you sure you won? "

:D

I know the feeling exactly - glad to hear Dave came to the rescue and you guys worked it out. Always a lot of fun to read your posts and even better when you win and the car gets fixed!
