Started today, one of my outer tie rod boots were cracked so I'm replacing both of those aswell. Ran into an issue with the larger set of fittings that go into the side of the pinion valve. The bottom most one is on there like a MFer and I stripped part of the nut, I'm going to get some vice grips tomorrow and hit it with the torch. Worst case i have to spend the money and wait for a new hose to come, I have to work tuesday, so that's not much of an option, and I really want to avoid it, heres to hoping the vice grips can get it off. Once they break loose they are easy to get off, I hit it with some PB Blaster before I gave in for the night.
The rack is out though, tomorrow if I get the fitting situation solved I still have to install the new bushings, put the rack back up, replace the tie rods, replace rotors, install short shifter.
