at 150K I had my indy swap the F&R entire suspensions with the sport chassis kit and SAS bars. While I was on vacation. I had heard how bad it could be so I figured I'd let him have all the "fun."
I've done the heater core and a couple other fun 9K jobs, but glad I missed this one. This is one of the jobs when a lift, a lot of heat, and an air hammer are really welcome. IMHO, removing the rear sway bar improves access (a bit), although can have its own set of issues.
Sorry it has been so bad for you! Better luck with the rest of it!
