blownengine is on a distinguished road

Red, I was actually looking at Bilstein shocks. Good company and they are pretty cheap.

And although it would be cheaper to just replace the worn parts I would rather replace it all because EVERYTHING is worn. Haha. Its an old truck and it doens't make sense to me to only replace half of them and then be forced to do the rest in a year when it squeaks again.

So should I just take the arms out and them have a shop press in new joints and bushings? Or is that something I can do at home?

Also do I need to replace the coils? Im not certain but it seems like they have started to sag. The bump stop is less than an inch from the lower control arm, and that seems kinda close. (Although I dont know what it looked like new)
