With the t-bars, I'm guessing I loosen them as much as I can at the rear adjustment, and then pull the cotter pin and nuts off the front end? If so, I can knock that out after work tomorrow, then everything will be apart. At least as far as I know. LOL!

Well, went to Autozone to rent their balljoint puller tool deal, and they don't have it to work with this car. They don't even have the socket. Fun part of the stop was the guy didn't believe that I needed bigger than 1 5/8' socket. Proved him wrong. Had the new ball joint with me. 
Onto other parts of the project, I have part numbers for the calipers and disks, I'll take a look at the spindles that I pulled off to find the part number off of that. I'm wondering where the parts came from, and if it's not a stock spindle, I want to make sure the tie rods are the correct ones. Does anybody have any tips besides googling part numbers to find out what they came off of?

Well, got it mostly torn apart today, with the exception of actually getting the ball joints and bushings out. There was some play in the ball joints, I don't know when this was done last time (I can guess when the brake conversion was done, but I don't know when that was). I was kinda ticked that none of the ball joints, and neither of the tie rod ends had the cotter pins in. the drivers side tie rod end just fell out after I got the nut off. Anyway, onto pics:






Having fun with this one!

OK, so getting the front tires off, I remembered, the previous owner converted it to disk brakes. Does that change what I should have bought? I think its kinda cool they are Chrysler brakes. Is the kit I got still good for this?

The guy that was going to help me had to have his appendix removed yesterday, so it won't be this weekend like I wanted it to be. Oh well. Autozone has the ball joint removal tools for rent too. Can't wait to get her done.

Nope. My coworker does and he will be helping me out. It will be a good learning experience for me.

Rebuild kit on order, and p-s-t (thus far) is awesome, no shipping, and I ordered the kit last night, and it's already been shipped!
 
Snotty, I'm running cheap radials right now. It's just old and stock still. LOL.

Thanks for the input guys! I'm patiently waiting for some moneies that the Navy owes me, and I will be getting a kit on order. She's scaring me a little bit when driving. Figure its about due anyway.

With the shimmy and shake of the steering wheel, and the front of the car in general, I think it's about time to replace stock bushings and all that jazz. The only problem is, I don't know what all I need. I'm looking at something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Performance-front-end-kit-1959-1961-Chrysler-Windsor-/200516726849?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2eafba7041&vxp=mtr
Would this be something worth looking into? (I know it's ebay, I'm just trying to get an idea of what I would need. Thanks!!!)

The fire was nothing big. It was more the fuel that had found a lead in the line a few inches from the carb built up in the valley pan caught fire. No major damage. Didn't even scorch the hood this time.
 
Wish I could be there!!!! Maybe next year I'll chance the trip.

Given that the toga caught fire yesterday less than a mile from my house(she's ok), I don't know that she'll make the 222 mile trip,
