Boring Daily Build

Ohhh...... well I feel stupid. I didn’t remove it fully because I figured it’d be a pain to get back in

Do you think I should transfer over this rubber bushing/washer? The new one didn’t come with one

I never use it personally.

I use anti-seize because of all my rust issues.

Not in and out of the knuckle but the CV shaft itself needs to extend when the wheel drops so there's movement at the one rubber boot.

The knuckle isn’t far out enough for the ball joint to go where it needs to. I guess this is because the alignment is off? Maybe I need to take off the tie rod end.

It’s quickly getting cold and it’s gonna rain tomorrow

I kinda forget but you may have to remove the tie rod end to feed the axle into the knuckle.
