    Rear brakes lines banjo bolt, what side?

    I have new rear brake lines for my 98 Explorer. I took off the drivers side and passenger side from the calipers. Now I can't remember what side the banjo bolt goes thru. The flat side or recessed side?

    Rusted out rear rocker panel...HELP Please!

    I'm working on replacing my rockers. That foam was put there by the factory. I think the rust problem is caused by this foam used for sound deading. I had a rear window leak on my 2 door for who knows how many years. The water ran down the fender wells into the rocker panels and just laid there...

    Bleeder location please.

    Update: I was lucky. I put the calipers back on the right way and bled the brake system and I now have a perfect felling pedal. Looks like no air got into the MC. I have this crap, Chilton Manual and it does not say or show that the bleeder has to be on top of the caliper, not the bottom...

    MountaineerGreen, thank you for the information. When I took the spindle off, the dust shield was on the floor in peaces and the metal ring was still on the hub. I looked on the drivers side and that one was in bad shape. I ordered new ones from Ford. Not a stock item. The bearings in the...

    How To: Upper Control Arm / Ball Joint Replacement (Lots of Pictures)

    When putting the bolts back in. Can the bolts be put back in with the thread side facing the fuel lines? The bolt does not come close to the fuel lines and the nut just slides in. No one has mentioned this before. Wheel alignment can only be done with the bolts replaced the way they came out?
