  • 1.       All 4 corners  were inspected, a hub seal has leaked 90wt onto the shoes and rear shoes are too thin for our comfort.  a complete brake job needed with a thorough inspection of all the hardware.
  • 2.       All 4 corners stripped to the backing plate  with all three flex lines  inspected for integrity, all the hardware (springs, anchors) need to be replaced, all the wheel cylinders and a complete  brake fluid flush will be done
  • 3.       Inspection finds that the hub assemblies will need to be replaced; the right front axle will need to be replaced due to rust at the splined hub end.
  • 4.       All the new components were prepped and painted.
