I went with a complete kit from The Right Stuff Brakes. Very impressed with the quality of parts and the fact that they literally include EVERYTHING for the job.What rear disc setup did you use? Did it change your track width at all??
Just a question - when you installed the poly bushings did you coat them with silicone lube? I've done that a few times over the years and never had a squeak out of anything, including sway bar bushings which on some of my past pick-up trucks were notorious. If not, a quick spray of PB Blaster's silicone spray lube might help.Good looking 69 Matt. That's one of favorite years.
One piece of advice. Don't use polyurethane bushings in your suspension build. I did in my 83 and, the squeaking drives me nuts. I don't know if polygraphite bushings would have the same issue but, I'm going to re-do mine with stock rubber bushings.
I thought about doing that, is there a specific range of model years the steering box will work? I'll have to keep an eye out for one.I think the seal you are referring to is the Pitman arm seal. Mine also leaked but rather than replace the seal, I opted for the installation of a different steering gear box out of a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This solved the leak and also gave me a much better steering ratio.
The used box out of a junk yard Grand Cherokee cost me fifty bucks, works perfectly, fits easily and provides a much meatier road feel - less steering loosness going down the road.
New hoses and two hydraulic adapters were the hardest but not hard problems here.
Yessir, you sold me on the conversion. In the process of picking the appropriate candidate for the transplant.I highly, highly recommend doing the JGC steering box upgrade while you are at this stage with the front suspension. It'll never be easier than right now to install a different steering box.
