One of the things I love about Factory Five cars is their owners – a real community. After posting my predicament on a forum I had two offers of parts! I paid for the shipping but ‘Roadwrench’ supplied me all new bearings, races, and a new spindle. What a guy.
So the process of stripping down the suspension began. Many parts were used to try to get the spindle off the lower control arm. And much swearing.
It finally came off.
All that was required now was to remove the old race, replace the bearings with freshly packed grease, and put back together.
