I plan on getting the Steeda X2 ball joints and installing them soon. So what else should I change while Im down there. I plan on getting everything from www.stangsuspension.com, so if you can link to there that would help.

And to anyone who has bought the X2 balljoints. It comes with two right? Cause I see the regular ones come individually.

Im thinking this stuff will do.

Is that it?

And how long of a job am I looking at?

It should come with 2 for that price.:D make sure you have a long pipe for breaker bar for the ball joint tool. :D

Don't have too much fun.

My dad bought a 10 gal compressor with an impact, ratchet, and air hammer. They were just sitting there, unopened. So I decided to "test them out" for him. And still have them here. So I have air tools.

While you are down there, I would replace the tie rod ends as well.

Also, you will need the ball joint press and a ball joint seperator....(pickle fork)......they are free loaners from Autozone.

Use a jack to keep the spring from killing you!!!!

Air tools are a must...not sure how much power you will get with a 10 gallon tank though.
