Re: [classicrv] Do it cherselfers: how to get coach onto jackstands?
- Yep, for tie rod ends, counting the threads is all I figured on doing-- I
just hope to get the new parts installed correctly myself, and leave the
fine tuning with jigs and shims to the paid professionals.
I agree with you, Richard--I appreciate the convenience and peace of mind
that comes with having an experienced, qualified technician do the work, but
my general rule (when I don't have anything else to do) is to look at the
bottom line, and weigh the risks against whether it looks like I will learn
something useful that might come in handy later, in this case like learning
how to spot these problems before I negotiate a price and buy the vehicle.
