Front suspension rebuild

Post by JGL on Wed Jul 22, 2015 1:49 pm

On my 76 Dart Sport, the 4 ball joints are fairly new, the rest of the bushings would need upgrading so where do I start? What should I do first? Wish I could get rid of the torsion bars but that is an expensive proposition.

Well you would need upper and lower control arm bushings and strut rod bushings.
Personally, I would support the engine from the top side, pull the torsion bars and drop the entire K Frame out....Then restore everything all at once including the ball joints...

I'd agree with dropping the K frame. I just dropped the whole front suspension from my 74 Duster in no time at all. It had no motor in it, but if you could support the motor from above, then it should be no big deal. Or just drop the motor with it, then you can clean up and freshen anything you need to there too. Just don't be apprehensive of dropping the K member. I was but there was no reason to be.
