Everything ready to take to the shop's press. I need to get away from traditional tools and start using air where and whenever possible. Cost me a nut but luckily I had another. Upper ball joint if you were wondering.

Lower ball joints and installed the VAPs steering gear actuator. I tell you what, if you really want to appreciate what that little guy does under there, disconnect it for a week. Front end of my car is now squeak, clunk, and rattle free.

Also, started painting my calipers today. VHT satin black engine enamel. Will update other thread accordingly.

Goo Gone will work as long as you don't let it sit too long. Just be sure you wax the area as soon as you're done.

+1 Wax a day before as well. Probably won't last but some is better than none right?

Also, heat it up and sorta roll it up on itself.

Replacing coil#4 for now until I order all coils and and spark plugs. But my surprised was that when I was replacing the coil I noticed that last owner used AUTOLITE spark plugs from what I know those are the cheapest plugs poor baby. So I'm guessing that this lady has motorcraft and autolite sparkplugs.

Got a p0352 code today. doesn't look good. Plus a p1000 guess I'll be taking it to ford next week and maybe have the pcm flashed. I just replaced the same cop last week so there must be some kind of issue.

Changed the oil and washed it. Also inspected the rear suspension. Looks like I have a tie rod end to change soon.

You sure those are the right bolt pattern, purevilpleasure? All the info you need should be engraved on the back of the spokes.

Jmtiseo, pics!
