After swapping both A arms around to no avail, I starting comparing
measurements on both sides, everything seemed to be real close, even
compared the castor of both king pins(although crudely), they seemed to
match. Getting frustrated, I put the thought of a sledge hammer out of my
mind, and grabbed a beer and sat down at the bench. Looking down under the
bench I spotted a frt shock. I wondered could it be? Removed the shock
from the car and installed the other one. Guess What- IT ALL FITS TOGETHER.
Apparently the PO had acquired the suspect shocks(not new or reconditioned)
and I have to take some of the blame by thinking they were correct and
Thanks to all who responded with their thoughts.
