going broke fast.

Just ordered steeda lower control arms and pan bar. Might need a second job to cover this addiction. Cant wait till February when tax return comes in. Omg it will be like second Christmas. To keep this tech what's the average instal time doing it yourself on stands.

Probably 2-3 hours taking your time. Make sure you use blue loctite on all the suspension bolts/nuts (Ford WSM will tell you they are one time use).

Did you get poly or spherical ends? If poly, stop by autozone and pick up a tub of synthetic grease (I got Mobil1 and it's been great) and apply liberally to the bushings before install. This will help it go together easier and keep things from squeaking later.

Thanks dude. Got Poly Bushings. So can I reuse the stock ford bolts as long as I use locktite on them?

Yes, that's what the vast majority of us do. They would probably be fine without loctite, but it's cheap insurance if you don't replace them.

Steeda lower control arms and adjustable panhard bar installed. Took about 2 hours with hand tools. Back end feels much more planted to the road. Well worth the money.
