Morning Pink MG,
I was finally able to finish putting everything back together. I still can?t say why that upper beam would not rotate with everything bolted together but as soon as I unhooked the ball joints from both spindles it rotated smoothly.
I did have the ?German? made ball joints pressed in and it does drive better. It is still a little stiff turning but I feel better about these ball joints loosening up after a short driving period. I now need to go back and reset my ?toe in? and ?camber?.
Yes at the ?Bug In? I plan to make me a sign and lay in the seat showing how much I did not spend at Black Gold and the reason why. Due to my schedule I have not been able to attend any of the local VW club meeting and inquire about me joining their organization.
