You don't have to go through all that to remove the radius arm bushing...and
easier (note: not easy) meathod would be to remove the 2 rivits on both
radius arm bracket where they attach to the frame...this isn't a fun job,
but much easier than making the complete front axle assembly...just use a
grinder or a air hammer and chissel to remove the heads of the rivits and
knock them through with a punch and take out the other 2 bolts on each
side...then you take the nut off the radius arms and replace the
bushings...replace the rivits with a grade 8 bolt and you're done...now it's
a fairly easy job to do next time.

if you put on a lift kit, then the rivits are already gone (either to put in
drop brackets or extended radius arms), and it is an easy job to replace the
RA bushing.

Subject: FTE Small - Brake light switch

Hi you all

I just got my 94 Ford Ranger XLT 2.3l back from the body shop and it looks
great. One problem though. My brake lights work. I have checked everything
and the only time that they do work is when I actually move the switch up or
down. My question is this. Is there an adjustment on those switches? This
is not the switch that has the screw on it, it is the one that has the U
shape side to it. I was told that if you move the spring that it would
adjust the switch in or out depending on what you need however.....I can not
get my fingers in there to see if it moves. If you all could help I would
appreciate it.


Thanks Rob
