It's been a while since I took everything apart. I did take lots of pictures but was wondering if anyone had a good list of diagrams for how everything goes back together. I'm also looking for a hardware list incase something went missing along the way. There are two support bars that come out of the front bumper support and connect to either the lower control arm or sway bar...I'm not sure. I know the bushings are already installed to the frame support. Does anyone know how difficult those bushings are to replace? Any part numbers? Looking for associated hardware also. I have the bars and cleaned and repainted them. Just need some hardware and the diagram on how to install it. Thanks

Sounds like it's time for some of these....

The factory strut rod bushings are swedged on the end of the center tube. You need to pry the outer washer off and drive them out.

All of the front suspension parts are listed here. Do not use polyurethane on the strut rod bushings, it will stress the strut rods and cause them to fail.
