I have used this book for reference on several projects. One was replacing all the suspension components, book told us how to do it the most difficult way possible. It seems when you look up each step, they assumed that is ALL you were doing. So for Spring removal, they told you to remove the front swing arms instead of just removing the struts. We wasted literally a day on one wheel stubbornly following the book.As for the rear end, all you had to do was drop the rear end, book wanted you to remove all the swing arms, torque struts, lines and brakes. All you needed to do was detach the shocks, loosen the lines and compress the springs, whole thing swings down. Book would have wasted hours of our time.
Now I need to remove the starter on a Convertible, no pictures, no decent instructions, no diagrams. Remove 3 bolts and remove starter. LOL. how about, where are the bolts, how do you get to them, how do you even get the starter out through the welded cross brace ford installed on the convertible, how about at least mentioning you need to access it through the front fender liner to get to the THREE, not TWO bolts.
There is no diagram for the fuses that I have been able to find. Half the Torque specs for the front end job were FAR higher than we could attain.
There is a lot of good info but when a novice is doing the job the book really fails to deliver the details needed. And no, I will not take it to a dealer or garage, what fun is there in that?
Get a Chilton book.
