Hi All, I am replacing my front bearings, tie rod ends and wishbone on my 99 Boxster. Considering that I have everything removed I decided to replace the shocks. Anything else I should consider while in there...springs/shock mounts etc..... Ok well now im seeing all dosent have to be removed(balljoints) so maybe I'll hold off on the shocks...any thoughts? Thanks v

Replacing struts,strut mounts,strut bushings, bumpers, bearings, wishbone, and tie rod ends. I assume the suspension has to be under load when torqueing wishbone and components that are attached to it. V

Got 1 side completely done. Just a few things. Torquing the rearward bolt for the control arm was guesstimated ...I couldn't get in there w/ a torque wrench even with a crows foot. Dont have that torque extension tool you attach to a wrench. I got it on real tight comparable to wheel lug tightness(calls for 118 Ft Lbs) Next is the axle bolt....340 Ft Lbs ....really? Gona stand on a breaker bar at 19 inches ( I weight 208) What say all? V
