I have decided to rebuild the entire front suspension. I ordered polyurethane bushings off of eBay (USA) for the superior performance and longevity especially in the harsh conditions of Africa. I will also be ordering all new rubber boots, steering rack and tie rods.
I also ordered a few tools to make the job easier.
Watch out for additional details.
This is the very first “Naija Used” purchase. I named him Brutus.
I purchased Brutus in late 2016 in Ibadan.
It shows a general lack of previous ownership pride but all his ails will be treated as time goes along. I’ve been very impressed so far
He’s had all major oil service and tune-up. A new set of Firestone tires were also installed.
He did throw a lower ball joint on the driver’s side a few months after I purchased it. I replaced all the ball joints and tie rods.
