While waiting for the ring pin plier, I was working on coilover project.
First of all, I try to cut the spring porch using grinder. It takes too much time and I replace disk to cutoff disk. Using right tool is saving so much time.
However, I leave too much metal for grinder. It takes about one hour for grind off extra metal to smooth up just one of the strut.
For rear strut, I still haven't remove the drum disk brake. In order to remove drum disk brake, I need to remove the Hub.
When I read FSM and Blue's work, it sounds harder to remove the rear hub.
I read some other post from somewhere, using impact wrench is much easier to remove the nut.
Grind the inner nut of hub and use impact wrench to remove.
Then using 12t shop press from HFT, to push out the hub.
So far so good for the strut modification.
I decided to go coilover conversion uing Bilstein P30-0032 shock following thehelix112's instruction.
I don't know whether GroundControl Coilover Conversion kit was available at the time when thehelix112 did his work. When I calculate the cost of the parts, it seems like it almost same with GC coilover kit.
I wonder I can use GC's coilover kit with Bilstein P30-0032.
