No I didn?t. I actually think something is binding in the upper tube.
I took the upper tube ?pinch? bolt out and it appears the torsion springs rotated toward the bottom of the tube. I was unable to reinstall the ?pinch? bolt. I was able to remove and reinstall the ?pinch? bolt in the lower tube. (This is with the car jacked up.)
I have also ordered the German made ball joints and I will replace the Brazil made ones while I have it torn back down.
I know where I need to place the adjusters when everything goes back together, so I should not have to worry about it again after I reassemble.
