No problem.. I think I covered it all.. Except for the pliers on the locking
nut.. obviously I didn't do it that way, but this nut has a TON of torque on
it.. and it should be put back with a TON as well.. therefore I recommend
the tool.. maybe you can rent one from a local shop.. I actually had to
hammer the end of the tool because the torque required to get that nut off
actually rounded the top end of the tool 2070-1.. so if you have some MAJOR
pliers you probably could get it off , but remember you will be working
AROUND the springs, which will make it a bit harder.. Have fun with it.. its
not too hard.. just takes a while.. If you get stuck, frustrated, or bang up
your fingers.. the best thing to do is grab a cold one!!!
