Damn body bushings
« on: May 03 2018, 09:51:07 PM »
Okay so I dove into replacing my body bushings and read the whole instructions on the vortex site along with anything I could find online so I would be prepared. I was not as prepared as I had though  :O

Removing the old bolts was pretty easy and 5,6 and 7 slid in like a champ. Then I moved to 4 and three and cannot get the body high enough to get the bushings out. The body stops at at about 2Ē and wonít lift any further.

It looks like the e-brake has tention on it and maybe the PS line from hydroboost to steering box but itís not tight at the stopping point.

Any ideas what Iím missing here?

If it is the ebrake cables pull the drums and disconnect them. And move forward.

Thanks. I was able to loosen it enough by the fuel filter and had to detach the reservoir and the PS line from the hydroboost to the steering box.
