I am nearing the completion of the front struts, tie rods, and ball joints on the XB. I just have to install the plastic cowl and the wiper arms. Also, I will take it to the alignment shop next week. I wanted to share pictures. I loved the ball joint tool I rented from AutoZone. It worked great. The only problem is with the ball joints to torque them would require the axles to be removed or use an adapter for the torque wrench with a box end wrench head to torque the nuts, but a socket will not fit so I used my best judgement on the tightening of the ball joint nut before securing it with a cotter pin on both sides.
