Looking forward to the Bloomington Gold pics. Have fun.
I've been out there since 3:AM. Now I'm on my way to the parts store. I get to buy a new tool (a pickle fork)!

Don't rip the boots apart on your ball joints with it or have new ones on hand (live and learn on that one......)

Thats weird your well is diffferent then my 97. I can see my fuel pump, you have some sort of heat shield around your tank. With the upper control arm I was really confused at first. I hope I never have to take mine apart that far

The wheel well on my 2001 looks just like Junkman's (albeit I prefer to leave mine assembled). I cannot see my fuel-pump and I have the heat shields in the same location

Wow, I finally got something done.... new wheel bearings and outer tie rod. And I cleaned all that crap up again so it looks a lot more presentable.

odd... I just did a search for "Big foot breath" and this thread popped up....

I'm about to have to change out my rear wheel bearings also Junkman. Where did you buy yours from?

Also, someone mentioned to do the maint on the emergency break while I'm at it. I'm really not clear on what would need to be done. Any info?

I bought my bearing from Bumper to Bumper. As for the emergency brake maintenance, there's an adjustment that you can do but technically, it requires a Kent-Moore tool (J-21177-A). Most people just wing it. You can inspect the shoes for wear. If the p-brakes are working, there's no need to adjust them. If not, that is definitely the time to do any adjustments.

Very nice!

I just replaced the timing chain and front crank seal on the race car. Wheel bearings are next. I do enjoy working on the C5. Very easy car to work on.... For the most part.

You are right. For the most part, and then you get bolts like the brake bolts that you break loose for the first time or those damn control arm bolts... damn! I almost gave birth to a trunk trout while straining to bust those suckers loose!
