Installing Ford 8.8

I bought an 8.8 from the sale section and am in the process of installing it now.

Going along well cept that my back is killing me....I guess I am too old for this kinda stuff.

Go the brake lines run and managed to salvage the e brake cables from the original set up. still not 100 percent on how I am gonna hitch em up but I will get there.

So far have run into several corroded fasteners: The sway bar doesnt like to be disconnected, neither do the upper ends of the upper control arms. Aside from that it is running along as to be expected. Routing the hydraulic brake lines is a pain but that's just part of it.

I think I am going to have a problem with the aftermaket lower control arms being a tad too long. Best I can tell I am going to have to shorten them to get my correct pinion angle.

Oh yeah.... it would be easier with a helper but it is New Years and the spouse is out on a ski trip, best buddy is at Disney World... you know the drill.
