Front Brake And Warn Hubs

With Piggy finally driveable, we cruised down to the smog station to start the task of figuring out what the state of Arizona required to squeak it through emissions. At one point, there were six emissions attendants under the hood looking at something. That seemed bad. Shockingly, it passed on the first run! Yay for us! On the way there and back the steering felt loose and popped as we rounded corners, so once back home the front end received new ball joints, a couple of new tie-rod ends, and new Timken wheel bearings and races. We also replaced what must be the factory drive flanges with some junkyard-fresh Warn locking hubs. Amazingly, the front brakes are in great shape and must’ve been replaced not long before it was parked.
