Nothing to see here...

Oddly, the driver's side was chewed up while the passenger side was solid.

So what's the deal with the lower rear arms? Rubber wears, poly binds, Ben's spherical?

Ben's Spherical or Volvo rubber. The axle needs to be able to articulate and poly is a bit to stiff in that application.

Hope to drive it tonight. The poly panhard is "clunky." The front actually seems good.

I understand the lower rears are a PITA, so I'll likely leave those alone.

They are a PITA, but a necessary evil and much less frustrating when you install Ben's product.

On the lower rears, the "big ends" are pressed into the axle housing or the control arms?

Each bushing is pressed into two 'ears' on the axle.

Yeah, thatís what I thought. Just take the axle down to the machine shop? Oh well. Any locals want to walk me through this sometime? Iíll trade you some cut springs.

Tore down the old M47 to see what's inside. Interesting. Total respect for those that know how to service these.

A few drops of oil on the ground under the new trans. Loaded up the pressure sprayer with hot water and Simple Green. Looks like an output seal leak. Should have...

Put a wrench on all the trans and suspension fasteners. So far so good. Need to have it aligned. Going to let the rear control arms ride until after the turbo motor.

Ran by the PnP for some B21 bits. Found a T-belt cover, pulley and (unpainted) valve cover.





Got a call from Kjets, do I still have the old trans? Crap. Should have left it together...

Two and a half months until Davis: To order Wagonmeister heater valve. STS to have their power steering mounts in stock soon. Woot!

The large axle bushings are not that hard of a job when you use the correct type of tool and make sure you press them out towards the diff (they are slightly tapered). The DIY "homebrew" tool per these instructions works well.

Wagonmeister water valve on the way. STS pump mounts to be available any day now. Plan to fab up the battery mount Monday.
